Event: A practical introduction to Agile and Scrum
Our popular 2.5 hour introduction to Agile and Scrum is back! Breaking everything down into easily digestible chunks, London’s favourite Agile-ist Jim Bowes provides a quick start guide to the principles of Agile and the increasingly popular Scrum framework. If you want to increase the productivity of your teams and learn how to release more value, more quickly, this session is for you.
When and where
Tuesday 8th March 2016
6pm – 8.30pm
Manifesto Digital – 1st Floor, Gensurco House, 52-54 Rosebery Avenue, Clerkenwell, EC1R 4RP
If you’ve recently started working in a Scrum team, or if you work in an organisation where Scrum is being adopted, or might be adopted, or if you’ve had a taste of Scrum and are considering becoming a certified ScrumMaster, you’ve probably built up a considerable backlog of questions.
In this event we’ll be providing a practical introduction to the Scrum methodology as well as a forum in which to air those questions.
Agile project management has grown rapidly in popularity since the principles were first set out in 2001 and Scrum is by far the most popular implementation of Agile. In Scrum cross-functional, self-organising teams tackle discrete amounts of work in time-boxes called sprints, with a set framework of meetings to aid planning, collaboration and productivity.
In this event Jim Bowes will condense what is normally a four hour introduction to Scrum into a much shorter session, leaving plenty of time to answer any burning questions.
No prior knowledge is assumed but we expect that you probably have some exposure to projects and project management.
