Gateway to Agile (Bay Area) Pages

The Vision:

Download PDF: http://info.matrixres...

The Gateway to Agile is a community of dedicated and experienced San Francisco Bay Area business and technical leaders who collaborate to learn and share knowledge about Agile.

Our vision is that Agile is a comprehensive set of the right fit implementations of Lean, Scrum, Kanban, Innovation Design Thinking, UX Design, XP, Scaling Frameworks (like SAFe, LeSS, DaD), Continuous Delivery or BizDevOps (DevOps, TestOps, SecOps) for your enterprise.

The Value:

We are launching a free 2017 Gateway to Agile Learning and Sharing Series to allow you to gain real-world experience through practice to take back to your organization.

The 2017 Gateway to Agile Learning & Sharing Series will expand your knowledge with practical information and workshops with separate business and technical tracks.

We are building a fun and intense community of existing and new Agile practitioners, below are examples of roles that will benefit:

  • Seasoned Agilists and Next Gen Agilists
  • Business and Technical Executives
  • Software Engineers/Managers, Test Engineers/Managers
  • DevOps Leaders, Innovation Leaders, Product Managers/Owners

The idea is that the community will self-organize and deliver value to each other over time.

Each month a new, rich topic highlighting the hottest trends will be explored!


RSVP ASAP, as seats will be limited to keep sessions intimate and hands-on, allowing us to dig deep with topics. …seating is limited due to the intimate, hands-on nature of the learning sessions and workshops.

The Topic Product Backlog

Here are the topics in the backlog for the first half of 2017. This is only the beginning. We hope you join us on what we expect to be a remarkable and fun journey.

Dark Agile

Dark Agile: Agile, by any other name, coexists with destructive and constructive forces that are liberating yet disruptive. How do we constrain the Dark Agile? *** January 19, 2017 @ Twitter

Agile Universe

Agile Popularity and Reality: Since 2015, Agile popularity is off the chart. It works well for some and not so much for others. Will the “real” Agile please stand up?

Taste of Scrum Workshop: Agile does not exist without Scrum, right? What are the “must-haves” for Scrum to work? What is the finer recipe of Scrum? No Estimates and Modern Agile are evolving concepts.

Taste of XP Workshop: Agile is meaningless without the best software delivered. What are the XP practices we ensue to deliver better software? Mob Programming and Full Stack are evolving software ways, how to wrangle the variety of software languages and tools.

Product Nebula

Product Adventures: Agile purpose is a business product that customers want. How do we come up with ideas and collaborate to deliver the software?

Design Thinking MVE/MVP Workshop: How have others taken ideas to software, then to customer value so seamlessly?

Tech Singularity

DevOps Workshop: DevOps is becoming an Agile foundation. How do we leverage DevOps for Agile?

TestOps Workshop: DevOps is getting a lot of rightful attention, but TestOps needs similar attention. How do we “shift left” so we deliver quality and sustain quality?

SecOps Workshop: Security and privacy is paramount. How do we integrate InfoSec optimally?

Enterprise Galaxy

Agile Frameworks: Agile Frameworks implementations are increasing, hoping to help with our scaling challenges. What will the new frameworks on the horizon bring?
