It seems that everyone finds their own way when establishing a method for getting things done. The 2011 Community Event Project will develop a theme to further inform those who are new to Agile and its allied methodologies.
We have made significant progress in the first meeting on November 17. The project was conceptualized, the core team formed, and resources and epics identified in the meeting. The team welcomes the thoughts of other group members.

I was just talking the other day about the power of a small group with a common goal. This meeting has opened new discussions for 2011. The work being performed, the ideas out of the box, and the focused discussions were the example of what this group is about.
Moving forward, I am looking forward to getting feedback from the rest of the organization about breakout discussions and focus group approaches to work performed.
Great Job Everybody.

This was an incredible meeting! We had a small turnout as we approach the holiday season and colder weather, however with this small team, we were able to take a deep look into our use of Scrum on the web development project and answer specific questions when asked. This led to a discussion on topics for our next meeting and what would be real value add - demonstrating the use of software tools from traditional project management to agile and how to plan and manage work with these tools. We also decided that there was need for greater knowledge and a longer event so we want to plan an all day event in 2011. Within the last hour of the meeting, we proceeded to identify all of the features needed for a successful event and created a product backlog and identified work for our first sprint on two little 9x14 whiteboards! What a great way for our members to get involved and really gain a deep understanding of how to use Scrum..by living it! Small turnout but enormous output!! Thanks guys!
