WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

If you or your organization isn't evolving — innovating, growing, or reinventing — there is a chance you might fail.

With the rapid change towards a tech-focused economy Kroger, the largest grocery chain in America, needed to remain relevant in the world of Amazon, Blue Apron, and Uber Eats - all while transforming their aging industry segment.

What was the next stage of their evolution? They created a startup within the 135-year-old company that transformed how they operate.

Join the team at Kroger Technology and Technology Association of Oregon invite you to a Lunch & Learn on Wednesday, November 28th from 11:30 am - 1:00 pm, where attendees will learn how Kroger has established a creative agile environment that is deliberate about their Digital Culture, stayed relevant, and managed explosive growth in an old industry.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
The conversation will be most relevant to Technologists, Engineering Managers, Product Managers, and anyone who is interested in finding out more about a growing tech environment.
