    Agile in a Tech World and How It Can Be Used to Improve your Day to Day with Jaime Valore

    We have a different format for this episode. Instead of the usual interview, today we have a Zoom presentation by Jaime Valore. This episode contains the audio portion of the presentation. If you would like to view the full presentation along with Jaime's slides, click here (https://youtu.be/5N2a8Se5YQE) or on the Youtube link below.
    Jaime Valore, a resident of Cleveland, Ohio, was introduced to Agile four years ago. Her Agile journey has led her to great success by incorporating this mindset into all aspects of her life. As a Senior Scrum Master/Coach for Hyland Software, Jaime has built strong partnerships with all levels of leadership and coached teams in their Agile practices. It is through these partnerships that she has been able to help support the organization through their Agile transformation. When she hangs up her professional hat, Jaime spends her free time dabbling in photography, reading, and spending time outdoors with her family.

    The Accidental Path to Tech

    The Accidental Path to Tech

    Today we chat with Carlee Niec (https://www.linkedin.com/in/carleeniec/), VP of Customer Experience at Pattern89 (https://www.pattern89.com/). If you were to ask someone to name the top 5 tech companies today, three of those will likely be companies Carlee has worked at. Carlee began her career in marketing and accidentally fell into one of the biggest tech companies there is, Google. She later went on to work at two more household tech names. She has since left those big names and made the move from the big city of Chicago to Indianapolis.
    Carlee explains how she got her start at these tech giants and why she eventually decided to take the plunge at a small startup and leave the windy city.
