Using the weekend after TR19, we had a unique opportunity to get 13 ALM Rangers into a room to work through and discuss the Leading SAFe training content, SAFe framework and the challenges of adopting it, or other frameworks, in the “real-world”. So far the feedback from the attendees has been very positive, but let a few pictures speak their own story.
What would an event be without Charles Sterling “Chuck” giving us a visit? THANK YOU for the cake, the Rangers attacked it like Hyenas on Saturday morning
Food is always an important indicator. Richard Hundhausen brought a box of Spuds and the pile of pizzas on Saturday and incremental growth on Sunday indicates that there was no lack of appetite.
Now for a few snapshots …
| ||Setup 15:00-18:00, followed by two long, yet rewarding discussion days. |
| ||All quiet on Friday and buzzing on Saturday. |
| ||Barry Paquet leads the Rangers through the material. Perhaps we should have warned him that the Rangers can be very candid and tenacious when they need an answer. |
| ||Richard would definitely have won the shirt awards … danger waterfall and <30 days … hilarious |
| ||Do you recognise these Rangers, who committed their weekend to this event and discussions! |
| || |
| || |
| ||Team A definitely lead the way … and evidence of a “pinch of craziness” was visible on the walls. |
| ||How many ‘s do you see? |
| ||Last images were Pizzas and after the 91 miles to Vancouver sign, I finally fell asleep on my way home on the bus. |
I will let the ALM Rangers comment below to add their personal impressions of this special weekend. We met the objective of bringing together Rangers who have never meet each other in our world of virtual and geographically dispersed teams, the objective of working through and discussing SAFe and most importantly gathering and discussing the concerns, challenges and ideas around this and other frameworks.
A special THANK YOU goes to Shannon Roundy who organised the facilities, handouts and gave us a good recommendation for pizzas This weekend would not have been possible without her phenomenal preparations and support!
See you after TR20 for another instance of this event?
