7:00 - 8:00 PM - The Main Event with Laura Powers

The View from Here:
An Agile Talking Tour from the Micrometer to the Mile High

The view from here is amazing! Use chunking and the magical number 7 (+/- 2) to supercharge your scrum team. Whether you’re working the details at the micrometer level – or writing the “mile high” epic user story – chunking can help you

• Foster more effective standups
• Nail stakeholder presentations
• Irradiate impediments with fluid negotiations
• And maybe even get a promotion (or a date!)

Join us to explore the wild and wonderful world of chunking and learn a simple set of communication techniques to apply on the job tomorrow.
