Optional : Describe your current software practice - where you and your team are now and where you want to be?

Currently working with a client that isn't Agile but used to claim they were. That was mostly an excuse not to follow any process but it was irritating that they were calling it Agile. The best improvement I've gotten so far is that they no longer call it Agile, they just call it 'ad-hoc'.

Please list : Any special topics you'd like us invite Experts speakers on to come and talk with us about? Or topics that you'd be willing to share on.

I'd listen to anything. Happy to share some thoughts on Agile hiring - finding good Agile developers - as well as my experiences with 'Agile in hibernation' - what to do when Management no longer wants Agile (resistance strategies, techniques for getting Agile back, tricks Management will play to force you out of Agile)

Optional : Which would you prefer 1) Expert speakers presenting to an audience, or 2) breaking into smaller groups sharing with others ? or 3) other, describe

3) I rather like the 'fishbowl conversation' concept - where you have a continually rotating group of 3 people having a conversation. (Essentially, three people, four chairs, one moderator - and whenever someone in the audience wants to add to the discussion they can sit in the open chair.)


Agile software developer, occasional Agile coach, die-hard Agile evangelist.
