This coming weeek, our Purdue agile strategy team will be in Anchorage at the University Economic Development Association (UEDA) meeting. We will be highlighting our work with VentureWell and Stanford in transforming engineering education. Scott Hutcheson and Liz Nilsen will be sharing an extraordinary story of launching agile strategy teams at 37 universities.

We have launched over 120 collaborations to redesign courses, renovate  or launch maker spaces, and create new credentials. Results show up quickly...in weeks and months, not years.
