Next Meetup

Sept. NF Agile MeetUp
NF Agilists, Looking forward to our Sept. meetup! Please be aware Availity moved to 5555 Gate Parkway, Ste. 110, Jax 32256 - next to the FBI building. This month, MATRIX Agile Coach, James Smith will be presenting. - Networking begins at 5:30pm - Presentation begins at 6pm sharp Presentation Description: We all know the light bulb goes off one person at a time when, as Agile Coaches, we are leading an organizational transformation. Lately, James has been including more information in his Agile 101 class he teaches at CSX to hopefully encourages that light bulb to go off a little bit faster. His approach is simple: 1) Explain why humans are already wired for solving problems in an Agile fashion. 2) Explain why Agile catchphrases like "just enough, just in time," and "maximize the amount of work not done" are more than just catchphrases. 3) Explain why stories and discussion are still the most effective form of communication for humans. 4) Explain why humans are terrible at estimating the time it takes to solve problems, why that makes sense, and why the Agile process we are wired for is the fastest way to solve problems anyway. So instead of focusing on time to complete, focus on the process itself. This presentation will take about 40 minuntes with time for discussion at the end. We look forward to seeing you there! Thank you, Holly Carman MATRIX Resources[masked] [masked]
