What we're about

Welcome to ScrumRVA, Richmond VA’s official Scrum User Group sponsored by the Scrum Alliance!

Our goal is to provide a place for Scrum Practitioners to learn, grow, and flourish in applying Scrum in the world of work. Whether you’re in IT, Marketing, Sales, etc., Scrum is a framework that can be used to deliver just about any kind of complex work. We’re a relaxed bunch and strive to create an environment of safety where you can bring your real-world struggles and questions and collaborate with other like-minded Scrum Practitioners who are genuinely interested in helping each other succeed with Scrum.

We meet the last Tuesday of every month and leverage formats such as Lightning Talks, Lean Coffee, Open Space, Guest Speakers, and more.

Whether you’ve just started out, or you’re a seasoned Scrum Coach, join us for food, fellowship, and fun with Scrum!

Our User Group is Free and open to EVERYONE!

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions, need a sounding board, or just need some advice. If you’d like to volunteer, help coordinate, present at an upcoming event, etc., please send us a message here on meetup!

Valerio Zanini: Adopting a Tiramisu mindset to building great products

In this session, we will explore the main responsibilities of a product manager and discuss how a Tiramisu mindset can help balance these responsibilities. We will talk about a couple of successful stories where Agile and product management were applied together to deliver great products and typical anti-patterns that cause teams to fail. Who is Valerio Zanini? A product innovator and digital leader, Valerio Zanini is passionate about creating products that customers love and developing the teams that make them a reality. With two decades of product development experience in a variety of organizations including Capital One, Cisco, Goozex.com and others, he excels at building new products in the early stages of product innovation, where uncertainty and lack of a clear solution are the biggest challenges. He works with organizations worldwide to spark a culture of innovation and agility. He is a Certified Scrum Trainer (CST), a SAFe Program Consultant (SPC), and a Certified Product Innovation Trainer (CPIT). Valerio is the author of Deliver Great Products That Customers Love (https://www.5dvision.com/books/deliver-great-products-that-customers-love/), published in 2018. At the end of the session, we will be raffling off a signed copy of Valerio's book.
