Success with Scrum: It's ALL About People! Bob Hartman

The South Florida Agile Association is pleased to present Bob Hartman, Founder of Agile for All and known as Agile Bob, in a special South Florida appearance.

Success with Scrum: It's ALL About People!

Is it possible to be doing everything Scrum says to do, and still fail horribly? Unfortunately, the answer is yes, and teams do it every day. Concentrating on doing Scrum well often means paying attention to all the meetings and artifacts while also making sure the roles all do their jobs. It seems to be all about doing things and this is where organizations get off track. Success with Scrum means understanding people. People do the work, not robots. Scrum requires understanding human nature and allowing people to do their best work in a meaningful way. This session draws from Bob's experience as a Certified Scrum Coach and Certified Scrum Trainer to help attendees better appreciate and understand the people side of Scrum. Bob will give a simple APPROACH for changing from process-centric to people-centric Scrum.

Many thanks to Bob and to Ultimate Software for hosting this event.

    I apologize for such late notice. I had something come up and just changed my RSVP to 'No'. I am very hopeful someone on the wait list is able to go now. It sounds like a wonderful evening ahead. I will look out for other such opportunities in the future.

    I was wondering if anyone was driving from Miami to Weston for the meet up. I am in Downton Miami (Bayfront Park) but obviously willing to get to any place where someone would offer a ride share. Thanks in advance.

    It's a great subject for my first meetup with you. This situation is sadly very common in France and I'm looking forward to hearing about this in the United States.
