Using practical examples and real-world experiences, Sarah will provide an informative and engaging introduction to agility, its relationship to lean, and the role of quality in an agile world.  Join us for this special dual APICS and American Society for Quality event on March 13, 2017 at Volvo Communications Center in Greensboro.


The pace of change in the world is accelerating.  As new technologies disrupt known industries and markets, the demands from our customers and the way they do business is also changing.  We must rapidly adapt, lead with agility and take advantage of new opportunities faster than the competition. 

Being agile means welcoming changing requirements, building projects around motivated individuals with the courage and authority to make fast decisions, and incrementally delivering value quickly to customers while still giving continuous attention to technical excellence. 

In this event, you will gain an understanding of:

  •          The agile values and principles
  •          The relationship between lean and agile
  •          Delivering value and quality in an agile environment
  •          What the most common agile methods and practices are
