Thursday, November 3 | Scrum-damentals

Register to attend

Scrum is the most adopted and recognized agile methodology. However, there are still challenges to Scrum adoption. This event will dive into several Scrum adoption pitfalls and how an organization can avoid them. In particular, we will highlight some of the proven practices that have worked for diverse sets of teams. We will also leave time for questions and encourage attendees to bring your most challenging problems!

Friday, November 4 | Limit Work in Process (WIP)

Register to attend

Overloaded individuals and teams suffer from bad multitasking. They are also cursed with long lead times, poor quality, and high rates of failure. Kanban limits work in process (WIP) to improve the flow in a development process. This event is more technical than the earlier Kanban events. During the event, we will expose the problems caused by excessive WIP, and the wide-ranging benefits of reducing WIP.
