Upcoming events (5+)
Our topic this month is: Exploring The Great Cultural Unity Of IT 6:00 - 6:30 PM: Networking- Eat/Meet/Greet 6:30 - 8:00 PM: Empower Agile Teams main event Few industries are as internationally diverse as IT, but when we think of international culture, we often think in terms of language, food, and architecture. What we should consider are the underlying factors that drive these cultural artifacts, along with what motivates folks and how to work with one another. This session is made for you and your team if you want to understand these cultural drivers in objective terms, how they originated, and how to contrast one culture with another in order to gain a deeper understanding and allow us to build bridges to more effective teams. Our community mentor and speaker will be Shane Collier. Shane is the founder of Consolidated Reality, LLC focusing on the impact of culture on the Information Technology (IT) industry. He holds a master’s degree in information management systems and a bachelor’s degree in marine biology. He is certified in cloud computing, a Certified SCRUM Master (CSM), Certified Product Owner (CSPO) and is accredited as both an intercultural management and an organizational culture lecturer. As well as holding certifications to Teach English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), his professional experience ranges from Antarctic scientific research to strategic roles bringing major multinational corporations to the Internet. Refreshments and location space for this meetup is made possible by our generous sponsor K-force https://www.kforce.com/ Tampa Bay Agile Empower Agile Teams group is focused on covering a wide range of topics that will help improve the skills a team needs to be strong, adaptable and cross-functional, and always deep-rooted in Quality.
Tampa Bay Agile & Clearly Agile are bringing the happy hour version of Lean Coffee to your area! Drinking not required! What is Lean Beer? Lean Beer is an alternative to the early morning Lean Coffees, for folks who can’t always join us at 7:30AM. Lean Beer is a great place to ask questions and share your stories of using Agile and Lean software approaches, over an adult beverage, if you choose. We discuss any topics on Agile and Lean that are of interest to whomever is gathered. You suggest the topics, then we prioritize that list democratically, through a good ole’ fashion vote. We manage our discussions via time boxes, and a Roman vote (drinks up/drinks down). We are a non-formal group, like to loosen our ties and roll up our sleeves at the end of a long day, and gather with other like-minded Agile Practitioners to exchange ideas and information. Come see what Lean Beer is all about and get your Agile on.
