What makes a great agile hire? 

The fact of the matter is that hiring decisions have an incredibly tremendous impact on the potential of your agile team. The right hire can be the catalyst that helps the team achieve undreamed-of heights, while a poor hire can mire the team in drama without them ever actually getting anything done. If your position involves making or influencing hiring decisions for your teams then this will be 90 minutes well-spent.

Allison Agile is proud to announce that on Dec 15th we will be hosting a round table on "Hiring for Agility". This discussion will bring four industry veterans with dozens of years of experience in hiring and building agile teams into a free-form discussion. Our focus will be on one simple question: What makes a great agile hire? Maybe the answer is certifications. Maybe it is experience or job history. Maybe there is something else that will bring the true agile-thinkers into your organization. Wherever the search for the answer takes us, we'll be going there.
