PMI CVC Director of Special Projects & Toastmasters Andrey V. Karpov will talk about a different perspective on Agile Transformation that led him to not only streamline the projects that he managed for his employers internationally but also helped him reshape his own mindset leading to him rediscovering Agile Manifesto, the Twelve Principles, and Ikigai as the foundations of his personal transformation that led to his success in his current role as a Business Development Manager & IT Recruiter at International Consulting Services, LLC and Founder & Agile Transformation Coach at TrueAgilityRVA.
