Brett Harned is known as one of the friendliest project managers in the world and formally a VP of Project Management at the popular agency, Happy Cog in Philadelphia.  While there, he founded the Digitial PM Summit event where hundreds of Project Managers from around the world gather each year to learn from each other about project management in the digital space.  Brett is now the Director of Education at TeamGantt, where he puts out tons of videos and guides on project management from his 20 years of experience on the job and in the community. Â I'm Nathan Gilmore, one of the Co-Founders of TeamGantt. I work on product design and I'm always talking with users about their current struggles.  One thing we've been hearing a lot about is how people are blending agile and waterfall, but there is no real instruction or inspiration available on how to do this.  Most people seem to think that they need to pick either agile or waterfall, when in reality it seems like 80% of teams are actually doing some type of blending.  However, there just hasn't been a way for everyone to talk about it and share their ideas.

That's why we wanted to start this event.  This is a chance for the community to get together and learn from each other on how peers and other experienced companies are actually blending agile and traditional methods to create a process that works for them.

This isn't going to be high-level fluff.  This is detailed in the weeds talk about process, tools, meetings, Gantt charts, boards, and how it all works together.

The first presenter will be a friend of ours, Justin Handler, from the agency O3 World.  They've been refining their process for years to get something that works for them.  And they are being incredibly generous about being transparent and being willing to share that process with everyone else in hopes that you can take something away that will help you and your team.
