June 25: IT Leadership Network | Executive Gemba
Host: Nationwide | 9am-12:30pm
Topic | Beyond Agile: How Lean, Agile, and DevOps Combine 

In this session, hosted at COE member Nationwide's downtown Columbus headquarters, take a deep dive into one of Nationwide’s technology areas that has moved beyond agile software development and lean management to create an end-to-end model focused on business outcomes and customer value. We’ll trace this system from the frontline through the C-suite and discover the value of direct business integration and elimination of proxies.

This session is open to senior-level leaders in the I.T. space at their organizations and, as such, will be limited in attendance.
