Agile project management - virtual panel for university students and academics

Join us for the first of three virtual panels focusing on key project issues for university students and academics - Agile project management.

We are delighted to confirm that the panel includes:

  • Mr Adrian Pyne, Pyne Consulting
  • Dr Serkan Ceylan, University of Southampton

After the panelists’ introductions, the remainder of the session is open to students, academics as well as practitioners to ask questions, share views and debate the issues. We hope that the session will support students’ knowledge on this issue and help create new networks. Students from all subject backgrounds are welcome to attend.

Our second and third sessions later in the year will focus on lessons learned from lockdown and how to manage virtual teams.
