Phew! It Stinks in Here - Agile Smells and Anti-patterns


Join us for a lively discussion as we address real questions posted in various agile forums by Agile and Scrum practitioners. We will first attempt to answer the question as is and provide the posters with a possible solution to their problem. Then we are going to take a second look at the question and try to see if there is a deeper underlying “smell”, anti-pattern, or misunderstanding of Agile values and principles. In our second proposed solution, we will attempt to address the root cause of the problem and provide a longer term solution.

When: November 19, 2012 at 6:00 pm (see agenda below)

Where: Excella Consulting, Ground floor conference room, 2300 Wilson Blvd., Arlington VA 22201

    A most interesting meeting, and method to gather topics and distribute info! I appreciate the welcome provided to one quite unfamiliar with Agile 1, learned a lot, and saw a very bright, engaged group of folks with lots to offer.
