    The place where Agile meets Product Management

  • #APO_SA

    Agile Product Open is the leading forum for learning, sharing, and promoting the application of Agile principles and practices to product management so we can make better products in better ways. We energize, enlighten, and

    exemplify the co-creative and collaborative core of Agile principles through the way we gather.

    Check out our "sister" chapter, Agile Product Open in Boston.
