Agile's Challenge with Team Dynamics - Missoula

  • November 4, 2013 · 5:00 PM
  • Washington Corporation

This will be a joint meeting with the Montana Programmers and Women for the Web
Food and soft drinks provided by Washington Companies. Please RSVP so we have enough for everyone.

Speaker: Erin Beierwaltes – Skipstone Consulting
Why have so many agile attempts failed? What is that the unknown force that often makes it fall flat? Join us to explore the hardest part of agile. Culture and team dynamics and few ways to start consciously building a better culture instead of relying only on a framework.

Erin’s Bio:
Through a mix of system theories, cultural principles and business practices, Erin partners with businesses to find the right balance of product, process and people, to create a responsive and adaptive learning organization.

Erin has been working on organizational development for over 10 years, working with established Product companies and startups, to adopt "just enough" formal approaches to support high paced growth and change. She believes strongly in addressing the combination of product discovery (figuring out what to build), process (how to set up processes to build high quality products quickly), and people (how to create a great culture) to reach organizational level agility.

    Will the presentation be recorded or could it be viewed remotely? I'd love to attend but just can't break away. Over in the Bozone with a couple of very sick kids. Part of the team dynamics (the family) in an agile methodology (parenting) that i need to learn so much about: My wife would kill me leaving her with two cranky, irritable and ill little ones, to travel 6 hours for a hour or two shindig.)

      I saw Erin's presentation at Big Sky DevCon two years ago and would love to see this presentation, too! Unfortunately, I was in the hospital Monday and Tuesday :(

    Getting ready to order the Pizza, salads, and drinks. Any requests? It should be a great meeting. I hope to have Erin there a little early, so feel free to stop by early if you want to chat with her before the meeting. Invite your buddies if you haven't already.

    Hey Paul how long do you think things will run? There is a PMI Network meeting at 6pm that I hope to hit too. An evening of project management...thanks for organizing.

      Doug, I hope to have the main topic wrap up in 45 minutes or so, but as you know, these meetings go on until we kick everyone out and then it continues in the parking lot for a while. Hey, invite your PMI folks to this meeting first. :)

    Bummer. Unfortunately I'll be traveling for business on the new date. I was looking forward to this. Hope it goes great!

    October 22, 2013

    • Paul M.

      Sorry Scott. Would have loved to have you there. I'm going to do my best to record it and post it.

      October 22, 2013

  • Paul M.

    Sorry, but we had to change the date due to a scheduling conflict. I hope you will all still be able to attend.

    Many of us saw Erin speak on Agile at the first Big Sky DevCon. I've wanted to get her to speak in Missoula since that time. Let's roll out the big Missoula welcome for Erin as she brings some new insight to our designers and developers.
