  • Budget Planning to Drive Agility

    330 E Kilbourn Ave

    Budget Planning to Drive Agility

    It’s that time of year again! Before you know it, you’ll be knee-deep in budget planning, preparing detailed plans you’ll never get a chance to execute, fighting with your colleagues for resources and questioning why again it is that you do what you do.

    There’s a better way. Extend agile practices to the top of your organization. Drive alignment from your C-suite to your teams and back again. Build better products. Create business value. Set an agile strategy in motion, fund it, measure its progress and adapt throughout the year.

    Speaker Bio:
    Tracey Barrett is the head of Milwaukee Agile and Vice President at nvisia. There she leads a team focused on product management, UI/UX, software development and DevOps. Her personal specialties are legacy modernization and team effectiveness.

    Logistics:
    This event will be conducted in person and offered again remotely at a later date. Comment below for an invite to the virtual session.

  • Joe Justice - SWITCH: How to switch your entire organization to Agile

    Joe Justice

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4n0tizk8Tg0

    I was introduced to Agile and Scrum management in 2005. In 2006 I founded WIKISPEED as a road legal automotive company, which received global press for using agile methods in hardware development and fabrication. My work with WIKISPEED created the modern field of Agile Hardware management and Justice’s Law, “The modules of the project create the structure of the company”. I was recruited to work on a Scrum team at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in 2008, commuting weekly by airplane for two years prior to and moving to Seattle, WA, USA with my wife in 2010. I did attend meetings directly with Bill Gates where I learned his perspective on parallel execution in management.

    In 2019 I moved to Tokyo, Japan, to open the offices of Scrum Inc. Japan which commenced operations April 1st. I formed the Agile Business Institute in 2019 and assumed the role of Chair of the Board. In 2020 I broke ground for an agile factory in Rosamond, CA, USA. In October 2020 Ai Kuwabara and I filed for divorce.

    I currently lead the Agile Business Institute (Seattle, WA, USA, with operations globally) as Chair of the Board. I currently operate WIKISPEED Inc. as a nonprofit organization (Seattle, WA, USA, with operations globally).
