Let's come together and discuss what it means to manage an agile project.
This is likely to be a smallish group so the format will be an open discussion.

Thanks guys. this was a good meet up. I would like to offer to speak at the next one - perhaps in a half talk, half discussion format. topics could be how to:* Initiate an Agile project* Write an agile project contract* Run a project using Agile Kanban* Organize a large agile project with many teams* Reduce wasted time and effort in software development projects* Run a project retrospective* Understand Corporate Management Politics & Culture - drawing on "Moral Mazes" by Robert Jackall
What do people think? would any of these topics be of interest for the next meet up?

I am interested in all the topics you have listed. If I wanted to prioritize my interests, it would be:

1. understand the corporate management politics & culture
2. initiate an Agile project, and ... all other topics according to your list. Thanks for your offer.
Sounds awesome. Perhaps the first step before all of above mentioned topics would be how to even convince people "on the top" like sponsors, GM's and so on to begin with, of the benefits of going/being agile, getting their buy-in first...?

Essentially the answers to "why should I go agile?" And "what's in it for me?" for these people.
Interesting topic posed in an interesting way.

Sounds like it was a great evening. Pity I could not make it.
By the way, am looking for Agile PM/IMs in Sydney for contract work. If you have anyone in your network who is decent at Agile (I will train them and be there to coach the teams as well), who is looking for a job in Sydney, please contact me.
That would be a very interesting topic Murray. I'm involved at Business case level and always asked to estimate features, but often there's not enough detail to get a price on how long features would take to develop.
I could also talk about how to estimate and plan fixed price Agile Projects

A word from our sponsors;
Swinburne are running a 2 day Agile Project Management masterclass. (I'll be delivering it.)
10% Discount with the code "Meetup."
It would be excellent if you were thinking of doing a course and decided to sign up to this, because it will encourage the university to expand it's activity in training and teaching about agile.
And of course it will be an excellent course :)
