Notes from the July Event

We had a stellar July meeting with a discussion led by Greg Myers, in-house Scrum Coach for ShareBuilder by Capital One. The turnout was impressive.
Greg got the audience up and participating with a quick group activity to categorize and contrast key features of Kanban and Scrum. He then facilitated a discussion of Kanban, Scrumban and Scrum. The discussion included an excellent description of Affinity estimating, different aspects of measuring velocity and ways to meet forecasting needs. The discussion included a good deal of input from the audience with several examples of real experiences from participants.
From there, we had a great audience-guided discussion on a number of additional aspects, including:

  • Organizing stories into Minimal Viable Feature
  • Aspects of different teams specialization, i.e. feature- or component-based
  • Using Kanban for discovery
  • How to move toward baking quality in, as opposed to finding defects through inspection

Stay tuned for exciting news about August and September events!
