I'd heard of Agile (my husband is a senior product manager for a tech company, so it's a process he uses), but I assumed it only related to software development. Marketer Lisa Wieting's presentation showed me what Agile really is: a project management system that integrates flexibility, testing, and shifting of resources into the plan from the get-go.
I've never been much of a planner (despite spending many years as a project manager - a pretty good one, at that). I fly by the seat of my pants way more than I really should. The fact that it always seems to work out for me in the end is actually a negative, because it reinforces those habits via a lack of consequence. However, Lisa has now inspired me to learn how to use Agile processes to create an actual plan that works the way my brain does, but in a much more efficient and results-oriented way. (And I happen to know someone very close to me who's just itching to teach me all about it!)
