IISE's digital strategist David Brandt talks about agile methodology for ISEs with Caitlin Kenney, P.E., systems engineer and agile coach at International Systems Management Corp, and Joan Tafoya, director at Sandia National Labs. This episode includes insight on agile principles and practices – how to lead an agile project, the challenges of adapting to agile in a virtual workspace and how to sprint plan, among other agile concepts useful in engineering management.
In this bonus episode of "Problem Solved," we play interviews with healthcare engineers from May 2020 who have insight about how health systems are managing and operating through the COVID-19 crisis. We first chat with Amanda Mewborn, vice president of facility planning and development at Navicent Health in Macon, Georgia, about her experience on the frontlines of patient care during the pandemic. We also speak with Ali Hobbs, a healthcare consultant with Catalyst, a Haskell Company and Aaron Kanne, executive director of implementation services at Care Logistics in Atlanta, about the Think Tank sessions sponsored by the Society for Health Systems throughout the spring.
