If you’re in Las Vegas attending Scrum Alliance’s Scrum Gathering, be sure to say hi to Tom Cagley, Vice President of Consulting.
David Consulting Group is a bronze sponsor of the event and Tom will be there May 6-8. This gathering challenges attendees to "Up the Ante" on their Agile game and it features three tracks:
- See The Future: This is the "What" in terms of delivery. It also includes the bigger picture and includes topics on organizational development, coaching, product road mapping, and similar activities.
- Build The Future: This is where we focus on "How" to create the valuable work product. We think about the elements of Scrum like the Daily Scrum, Scrum Roles, Sprint Backlog, etc. Topics for this track include activities throughout the Sprint: effective retrospectives, collaboration techniques, removing impediments, and others.
- Tools of the Trade: Here we focus on the tools and techniques for engineering practices such as continuous integration, code refactoring, pair programming, and unit testing. These constitute the technical aspect of "How" when it comes to value delivery.
Be sure to follow all the action from the event on Twitter using the hashtag #sglas – we’ll report back in another post on what we learn at the conference!
