NYC Scrum User Group - November meeting
New York, NY
Scrum practitioners of New York!
Please join us for the November meeting of the NYC Scrum User Group on Thursday, November 20th at Havas Worldwide!
Time: 6:00 - 8:00pm
Place: Havas Worldwide, 200 Hudson Street, 6th Floor, New York, NY 10013
6:00 - 6:30pm - Pizza and networking
6:30 - 8:00pm - Get More Out of Your Scrum with Scrumban - with Ajay Reddy
Agile teams around the world are trying to find the answers to some burning questions:
- Should we do Scrum or should we do Kanban?
- Is one better suited for certain types of teams?
- Do we have to progress through one before being ready for the other?
- Is there a good hybrid? (What’s this thing called Scrumban?)
If you're asking similar questions, this introduction of Scrumban will demystify what many have made an unnecessarily complex debate.
Scrumban represents a layering of the Kanban Method within a Scrum context, complementing it with a variety of new metrics, visualization and management techniques. The presentation will walk participants through common evolutions in thinking, process and management that teams and organizations experience when using Scrumban to improve their mastery of the Scrum framework.
Ajay Reddy has been helping IT teams and organizations improve their operations for many years as a consultant / coach and through his contributions as chief product architect for ScrumDo.com (a cloud-based project management tool for Scrum teams). Ajay successfully employed Scrumban to help enterprises more effectively adopt and scale Scrum to realize sustainable business outcomes, and his book on these experiences is scheduled for publication. He led creation of the getScrumban Game to accelerate the learning of key principles for individuals interested in employing Scrumban in their environments. Ajay is founder of Code Genesys (a Boston-based, Agile Solutions Boutique), co-founder of ScrumDo.com, and a former Associate with David J. Anderson & Associates (father of the Kanban Method).
Looking forward to it!
