    Wade has worked at Blinds.com, the top online seller of window coverings, as a Product Manager here in Houston since 2012.  After joining Blinds.com he became a Professional Scrum Product Owner and PMI-Agile Certified Practitioner.  Wade is excited to share about Blinds.com’s agile culture, in particular about the recent trends he’s seeing with agile moving outside of software development and into other areas of the company like marketing, HR, business intelligence and yes… even accounting! 

    Topic Description:  Confessions of a Product Owner – Part 2

    Wade Pinder, one of our ALNH members, continues to share the ups and downs of his agile journey.  Last May, Wade covered the basics of Agile, Scrum and Product Ownership.  This month he’ll focus on the day-to-day realities the Product Owner faces in managing the product backlog. He’ll share practical suggestions for creating, prioritizing and maintaining the backlog as well as writing “stories that move”.

    Professional Development Units (PDU) for PMI certified professionals:

    The introduction of the updated CCR system, has resulted in a much simpler procedure for claiming PDUs. As before, there are no specific PDU codes for events that award up to 2 PDUs.

(The category for each presentation will be indicated on the web-site)  This includes dinner meetings, pre-dinner meetings and meetings at any of PMI Houston's satellite venues.  If you attended both pre-dinner and dinner presentations, please submit 2 PDU claims following the process below for each presentation event.
