Our guest speaker is Ed Neubecker from IBM for our April 18th Information Exchange.  We will focus on how Agile is changing the way we develop applications software, the dynamic in the work place, and the tools used.  Whether you're an IT developer or a business manager, you will be impacted.  Are you ready?  There is no simple definition of Agile Software Development Framework's.   It is terminology which will become commonly used to describe delivering value in the work place.   We hope to explore some of these approaches while sharing an overview of IBM's  Agile Software Development Tool with the audience participants.
