Keeping up on a project without turning into a Gantt chart expert

Hi all!

For this one, we'll talk over ideas on project management skills than can be necessary if you are a leader but maybe are not a dedicated project manager. At some level we all have techniques we can share to make sure our teams are headed down the right path. A lot of the world is using Agile methodologies of some kind nowadays, so we'll talk about how leaders can track and measure at a project level in these kind of frameworks.

We're thinking about a couple people presenting the process they use
first before we go into a free discussion. Any ideas or suggestions on making the format better is always appreciated.

This time we'll be at the Return Path office in Broomfield! Many thanks to the Return Path team for to hosting and providing food & beverages. If you're somewhere along 36 and haven't been able to make it down to LoDo for one of these, here's your chance to attend one nearby!

    Great conversation last night. I've already starting preaching about the need for visualization and defined epics/features

    Sorry I missed this one as the topic is very timely for me right now. But dad duties and bad roads got in the way. Hope to see everyone next time.

    Thanks for a good meetup and strong dialog. Books mentioned "How to Measure Anything" by Douglas Hubbard, "Personal Kanban" by Jim Benson, and "Flaw of Averages" by Sam Savage. If anybody would like to know more about flow based project management, drop me a note. [masked]

    I'm looking forward to seeing everyone Thursday night. Please enter 8001 Arista Place at the West Entry (Street View: http://goo.gl/maps/zZL41) and take the elevator to the 3rd floor. I've asked the building management to keep the doors and elevator unlocked from 6-7p. I will post signs with my cell number in case you can't get in. We will have pizza and drinks.
