Welcome back after the summer break! This month we have Tony O'Halloran visiting us all the way from New Zealand (via East Cork). Tony is going to talk about some Agile failure patterns he has encountered in his career and how he has (occasionally successfully) addressed them.

"We can no longer simply apply the Agile of 15 years ago to the problems of today. Scrum, or any other framework we utilise, is useless in isolation. We know more now and it's lazy to not to put that learning and tools to use.

Along my journey, I've encountered several common failure patterns that a Scrum Guide or Certification can't address. This is some of what I've learned through the failure of trying naively to do so.

This will be an exploration of those failures and what I used to (occasionally successfully) address them; largely based on storytelling, and accompanied by terrible illustrations and bad jokes."

Tony's Bio:

Tony is an Agile coach and consultant Nomad8 in New Zealand who uses his background in development to bridge the gap between IT and the rest of the business. He’s a coach and facilitator who’s not afraid to address dysfunction, but always brings positivity and a sense of fun to his work. He is a terrible ukulele player.
