Agile 101

A year ago we held our first 'Agile 101', the plan was to hold it every few months but it never happened. So on it's first anniversary we are setting up a recurring meeting (3 a year) for those interested in an introduction to Agile. If we get enough people interested each time we plan on doing the session then we will set a location and a presenter.

 

Note: This is in addition to the usually monthly meetup.

 

Here is the original description of the session.

AGILE 101


Come and join us for an informal introduction to agile project delivery.

With a few slides, anecdotes and artefacts we'll cover:

1. the agile manifesto, why it should be your primary reference

2. good litmus tests to measure a project's agility

3. ideas on what to bite off first, if you're in the driver's seat

4. the importance of analysis and scope breakdown .. and whatever you'd like us to discuss (on this general topic area).

 

Although we will touch briefly on Scrum, Kanban and XP, this is not designed as a training course in any of these.  They will not be the focus of our discussion. You should expect to leave with a good framework upon which to further evaluate the aspects of agility relevant to your role.

OPEN INVITATION TO BUSINESS STAKEHOLDERS

If you know of any business people (non-IT) who are interested - please invite them along.  They will find this a useful and independent introduction without the jargon.

    Last night's meetup was great! I wrote two blogs...

    "The Agile manifesto is made up of 12 principles. Our discussion revolved around one in particular."

    "Readify, Google, Atlassian, CBA, and others have shifted. They don’t have a 'Human Resources' Department."

    Hi Everyone,

    As this meetup has a large waiting list, could you please update your RSVP's to allow those people on the waitlist to make it onto the confirmed attendees list?

    I'll send out reminders as we get closer to the date, however for those people that know they can't make it, it would be great if you could update your information now.

    Also as this is hosted at CBA, could you please provide your first and last names and the names of any guests you are bringing along, as you will require this information to receive your access pass to the building.

    Thanks

    Peter

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
