Resistance to Scrum (Jon McNestrie - Development Manager at JHC)
One of the key things in getting Scrum (or any agile methodology) working for your team is overcoming resistance, often from senior management. We've all heard the likes of "You just want to be able to de-scope work" and "I need dates". During this talk we'll discuss some of the common objections and how to tackle them.
Lean Coffee ( http://leancoffee.org/ )is a way of facilitating a good discussion without having an agenda before hand. We should (hopefully!) have a wealth of experience of agile development in the room. Let's share some knowledge and experience with a discussion about whatever agile topics or questions people are most interested in.
The meet-up will happen at Clavering House near to Central Station in Newcastle. You'll find it through the railway arch and on the left. We'll be on the second floor (no step free access I'm afraid).
