Dinosaurs and Tiny Hands... these terms aren't found in the Scrum Guide, but they are part of a high performing Scrum team at Toyota Connected. In an efficient Agile environment using Scrum methodologies, the Product Owner and Scrum Master are in unique positions to impact their development teams. It’s important for both individuals to fully understand their own roles, and to appreciate how they can make the most of their collaboration with their team. Mark Lindsley, Sr. Product Owner and Jeff Kramer, Scrum Master, will share their experiences both learned through the classroom and in the workplace at Toyota Connected in an engaging and interactive format. There have been several articles, books, and lectures on these vital positions, but there's nothing stronger than hearing and experiencing practical tips from Scrum professionals that are in the trenches.
Presented by Lesley Wallace --------------------------------------- Summary: The idea of "agile transformation" sounds large and overwhelming. Let's chat about how agile principles can be applied, regardless of methodology or framework. For the interactive part of this presentation, please download the Kahoot app, or bring a device that can access Kahoot.it. Back to basics first-- a quick review of Agile Values and Principles, and then we'll brainstorm how to implement "bite-sized" changes at your own organization. Let's learn (and re-learn) how to be agile, even in a waterfall organization. Bio: Lesley is an Agile Coach, ScrumMaster, and quality advocate working at Slalom Dallas with over 15 years of experience in improving the customer experience. Her background includes 6 years in multiple agile roles and 10+ years in manual and automated testing. Lesley’s past Agile teams have utilized the Scrum and Kanban frameworks, with the occasional “Scrumban” to plan for external vendor and operational dependencies. Being agile means “doing the right thing” for the client, and she understands that flexibility, along with consistency, are key to successfully moving toward agility.
