  • Scaling Professional Scrum
    On Oct 11 Richard Hundhausen, a Scrum trainer and the president of Accentient will be joing us to share his thoughts and experiences on scaling Scrum with Nexus. We are excited to have him at Agile Munich and looking forward to the event. Please note the cancellation policy below. Registration for this event is only via meetup.com. We'd like to thank Nils Bernert and Valtech GmbH for sponsoring and hosting this event. Abstract: "When multiple development teams cooperate on the delivery of a single software product, they face unique challenges: dependencies, integration issues, and quality differentials. Even if those teams are high-performance Scrum teams, the communication pathways in Scrum won’t suffice. The Scrum framework wasn’t designed to support more than a single team. Scrum.org’s scaled Scrum framework (a.k.a. the "Nexus") was designed to handle these higher level functions. In this presentation, Richard will introduce the Nexus and its new roles, events, and artifacts that provide an "exoskeleton" to existing Scrum teams, enabling them to scale effectively. Even if you have evaluated or adopted other scaling frameworks and methodologies or are just starting to experience the friction of software development at scale, come and be part of the conversation. Bring your most challenging Scrum development and scaling questions and get them answered. Read more about the Nexus here: https://www.scrum.org/resources/nexus-guide" Bio "Richard Hundhausen is the president of Accentient – a company that helps software teams deliver better products by leveraging Scrum and DevOps. He is a Professional Scrum Trainer, author of the book "Professional Scrum Development with Microsoft Visual Studio" and is the co-creator of the Scaled Professional Scrum “Nexus” framework. As a software developer and consultant with over 30 years of experience, he understands that software is built and delivered by people and not by processes or tools." >>> Important note: Community organisers, speakers and sponsors make a huge investment to bring this event FREE to you. We only ask you to cancel your ticket/RSVP latest by 48 hours before the event in case your plans to attend change. We take no-shows seriously and will take the liberty to cancel your membership/reject your attendance at future events in case of no-shows. By signing up for this event you agree to this policy.

  • Felipe Castro on "OKR: Life is Too Short for Waterfall Goals" [Hosted Webcast]
    We're excited to have Felipe Castro joining us to share his insights about OKRs. >>> Note that for this meetup Felipe will join us remotely (via webcast) but there'll be opportunities for interaction. More on this below. Felipe will talk about: 1. Why using Agile together with a waterfall approach to goals turns teams into "feature factories" with no focus on delivering value. 2. How OKR can help teams focus on business outcomes instead of features in a roadmap. 3. A simple method for using OKR and Agile at scale. Speaker Bio: "Felipe Castro is an OKR coach and author of the upcoming book "Goals for Agile Teams: Scaling OKR's from Teams to the Enterprise." He helps agile teams across the globe on how to use OKR to create alignment around business outcomes instead of features in a roadmap. After training thousands of individuals, Felipe created the OKR Cycle, a simple method to avoid OKR's most common pitfalls." With this meetup we are running an experiment to have physical audience presence but speaker will be joining live via video conferencing (webcast). This format will potentially enable us to bring you more gloablly renowned speakers. We'd be looking forward to your feedback on this new format.

  • How my Coaching training changed how I think about me, my work, my team members.
    • What we'll do Ines Stuppacher will talk about, how her Coaching Training influenced her. The session will be spiced with a little bit of audience interaction. Abstract: In October 2016 I started a training to become a Systemic Business Coach. I wanted to get more background knowledge and tools for my daily work. A colleague with a similar training, told me "The biggest change will be about yourself". But since I do a lot of self-reflection, I thought that the training would not have a big impact on me. Boy, was I wrong. That is why I would like to share with you what changed in my thinking and how that reflects in my work-days. Maybe some of those changes in perspective that I made, will also be helpful for you. Speaker-Bio: Ines is a passionate teamcoach with a fondness for agile methods. She currently works as a Scrum Master for HolidayCheck and is also available for coachings as freelancer. Ines has a background in computer sciences and has been working as a Scrum Master for the last 5 years and is still excited to learn more and get better at what she does. In her free time she loves travelling, photography and sports. Twitter: @inesStu • Important to know Valtech will stream the champions league game Bayern : Real Madrid at 8:45 pm!! Also with snacks and drinks. (Please bing a small donation if you would like to watch the game with them)

  • Scaled Professional Scrum - Introduction into the Nexus Framework
    As a sequel to our scaling events, Peter Götz will be sharing his experience and thoughts on Nexus. "The Scrum Guide describes Scrum for a Development Team of roughly 3 to 9 members. Many organisations would like to get more work done and scale their Scrum to more than one of these teams. This leads to some challenges and problems. This talk will give an introduction into the Nexus Framework: a framework that describes how to work on a product with more than one team while still having the self-organisation and bottom-up intelligence that Scrum provides." Bio: "Peter is a trainer and coach from Munich. He started as a software developer in 2001, became an IT consultant in 2006 and Professional Scrum Trainer in 2012. He supports teams adopting Scrum since 2008." This event is sponsored by Holiday Check AG. Thanks to Mathias Gorf for arraning this. As always please make sure you keep RSVP up-to-date to give others a fair chance to join if you cannot. Looking forward to it...
