He worked on a test plan and found several issues that will be shared with Lanyon (the vendor). Ron is an early adopter for the app and is showing true leadership to the rest of the team as he encourages them to follow in his footsteps.

Jenny Tarwater - August 2016

Congratulations to Jenny.Jenny worked with KC Agilehood to add 4 Open Space sessions to the PDD Agenda when we determined that we were 4 PDUs short of the 16 PDUs we had advertised for the event.
