Ever feel like a square peg in a round hole? Are you undergoing or considering an Agile transformation in your enterprise and wonder how — or even if — your team’s jobs map to this new “Agile” thing?

If so, you are not alone. Many people struggle with this fundamental question: “What am I in Agile?”

Join the Agilistry & QA Meetup, hosted by QASource, for an in-person, interactive presentation on responsibility mapping for Agile roles by Ian Maple, Intuit’s Agile Transformation Leader, on Tuesday, June 19 at 6pm. In this session, you will learn how to effectively map any person to the new Agile roles needed as a foundation for a high-performing Agile team, regardless of their current role or job title.

We will also explore some of the other important roles we see on and around Agile teams, especially the role of a “Technical Owner.” This session will include real hands-on experience with Intuit’s Agile responsibility mapping activity.

Refreshments begin at 6pm; Program begins at 6:30pm
