Topic Overview:  Lessons Learned adopting Agile and Changing Culture at Big Companies

Agile adoption is easy when you’re a startup with only a few people. Not so much when you’re a large company with an established culture and process. Come hear the ongoing lessons learned from adopting agile at two established tech companies (Pearson and GoDaddy). David Foster (Pearson) and Mike Bovich (GoDaddy) will share their insights on pushing for change within their orgs and the power of collaborating across company lines.

Speaker Bio:  Michael Bovich

People Hacker, Geek, Father of two, nerdy dancer, cat herder (literally and figuratively) and Director of Development (Web Hosting) at GoDaddy.   Mike leads the teams responsible for developing GoDaddy’s line of hosting products.

Speaker Bio:  David Foster

Principal Architect at Pearson Learning Services Technology in Chandler, Az. David has over 15 years of experience working with teams large and small, in agile and non-agile environments. As a Principal Architect for Pearson, he works with the product management and development teams to provide technical guidance for their product development.
