    My only complaint is that it was too short.

    I thought this was definitely a good meetup. The 3 standout takeaways for me were the Agile software triangle (Value - Releasable Product, Quality - Reliable adaptable produce, and Constraints - cost, schedule, scope), Technical Debt discussion, and I am very interested in the business value scoring. Thank you to the hosts!

    It was great to hear a message dedicated to Scrum Product Management. I feel as though I have a new thought leader to follow in this field.

    Very insightful, wish all business owners and product owners were here. Common sense brought to light... duh! :) Could use handouts of the presentation for future reference and for note taking...

    The was an excellent meeting. Jim was a very good speaker, very engaging. The Agile Triangle was an excellent concept that I had not seen before. He gave good answers during the Q&A session. Very happy that I attended.

    Perhaps I'm starstruck, but seeing Jim Highsmith speak during my first DFW Scrum event has inspired me.

    That was great. I have a bruise where I kept pinching myself...

    It is awesome that our group gets to listen to one of the signatories of the Agile Manifesto and we also gain from the various perspective that each expert brings. Jim was bent toward the PM and Management/Exec side of the equation and gives outstanding information related to Value and forcing the business to understand value.

    Looking forward to it. Thank you.
