Our goal in Engagement is to move towards an agile philosophy work flow for marketing projects. This is completely new to our organization and will take a lot of effort and persistence to be successful.

Utilizing our time in Mozlando to introduce everyone to this methodology, gives us a rare opportunity to have all of engagement in one place working together through the process - Getting to understand the principles that will work for our org.

For more thorough details about why we are changing things up for Mozlando, please go to Chad's Orlando Work Week Design Doc
