Agenda: * A brief opening, announcements and introductions * Lakshmi's talk & Q&A (transition at 1pm ET) * Networking for those who can stay Title: The Power of Inceptions Speaker: Lakshmi Ramaseshan (an Agile Orlando alumni) Abstract: What is the value of Collaboration in your Organization? Are your teams aligned with the overall purpose & outcomes of an initiative they are working on? How might you change that & increase the chance of their success? This discussion will focus on the value of Disciplined Collaboration in the way of an Inception. An Inception is when the whole team & other dependent team(s) come together for a day or two to align on The Strategy (Why), The Work (What) and The Team (How). Creating a “Shared Understanding” and “Alignment” are the Goals of an Inception and when done well it can be very energizing for teams and set them up for success.

Join us for an after-work, hands-on virtual session that will introduce you to a technique that helps to build strong teams, even when working virtually. What is important is not your physical proximity -- it's your mental alignment. In this workshop, Fazeel Gareeboo will step you through an exercise that will help you to discover, articulate, and achieve your goals. At the end of this workshop, you'll have better skills for alignment and achieving successful outcomes! ----- A software development director at EA Sports Tiburon, Fazeel Gareeboo manages a team that provides automated builds and smoke-tests for the studio.

Hello, agilists! We are excited to join you in 2021 to share Agile-related conversations, tips and inspirations. Look for a reminder & the Zoom link in your email Thursday evening, January 28... Can't wait to chat during our "Agile in the Morning"! ----------------------------- Let's start our day with Agile thoughts, conversations, tips and inspirations in the Altamonte Springs/Maitland area. 'Agile in the Morning' is a great place to ask questions and share stories about using Agile and Lean approaches in software development and other industries. We discuss anything that interests the group via a "Lean Coffee" format: You suggest topics, then we prioritize those items democratically. We manage our discussions via a Kanban "board," timeboxes, and a Roman vote (thumbs up/down). Interested in the Lean Coffee format? This informal, conversational technique is the perfect way for beginners to learn, and for experts to give back to their community. Learn more at LeanCoffee.org!
