- Deep dive into Value: What is it? Are you sure?
Note - this is a rescheduled date. If you RSVP'd for the original date, your previous deposit has been refunded. ============================ Presented by David Williams. Value is often used when designing and deciding on what work to do next. It’s central to both Agile and Lean principles. Together we will explore the question of value and challenge each other on what it is and how we use it? After defining some language around value and looking at some possible models on how it can be used, we will jump into a group exercise to dig deeper to uncover gaps in our mental models and gain new insights into what this value thing is and how we can use it more effectively. David Williams is an Agile practitioner, with over ten years coaching and managing teams developing software and hardware, transforming to agile and lean practices. Passionate about creating humane and engaging work environments, where innovation and problem solving are an intrinsic part of the learning culture. ============================ ABOUT THE $10 REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT Having raised $1000+ for Flying Robot School in 2018, we are continuing the $10, refundable RSVP deposit system. In short, if you turn up, you can get your money back. If you're a no-show, we give the money to a good cause. You can also choose not get a refund.
