In 2012 a group of like minded individuals came together in San Francisco for SprintZero, an event to discuss the application of agile and lean practices and principles to the world of marketing. The disucssion came about as more and more marketing professionals found themselves struggling to adapt to the constantly changing environment.
Since October 2012 we have been hosting monthly meetups in the city to educate product and marketing professionals on agile practices and how to implement them in their own environment.
We are discovering better ways of creating value for our customers through new approaches to marketing.
