VIRTUAL May 19th Chapter Meeting
5:30pm - Chapter Announcements / Updates
5:45pm - Presentation
6:45pm - Wrap-Up
Get ready for a different kind of “presentation” … Bring your peers and colleagues along for a gameshow-like experience aimed to increase your knowledge in Agile and the Scrum framework. The core of the game will focus on concepts taught in the Agile manifesto and the Scrum Guide. More importantly, however, throughout the game we’ll take a few moments to discuss recommended best practices, threats to your success, and stories from years of past experiences. We’ll learn from each other, collaborate together, and walk away with practical tips we can apply to our teams right away the next day. Looking forward to "seeing" you there!
