KEN SCHWABER ON SCRUM
Ken Schwaber is a celebrated pioneer and developer of the Agile frontier. He is the co-creator of the Scrum framework, and the author of numerous books on the subject. He pioneered the worldwide evangelization of Scrum (via Certified Scrum Trainers) and taught thousands of trainers how to effectively convey the plain truth of Scrum’s practices and essential core values.
Presentation: KEN SCHWABER ON SCRUM
KEN SCHWABER presents his positions, guidance and insight on Scrum. Ken has the floor for the entire meeting. Register early to secure your seating. This meeting has limited seating and Ken Schwaber needs no introduction. RSVP as soon as possible to secure you seat.
During this presentation, Ken plans to sketch the essentials of Agile and Scrum practice, and then dive into ONE HOUR of questions and answers. Bring your hardest, thorniest, hardest-to-solve, real-world Scrum questions to this meeting. Ken provides the answers in an empirical Q&A format.
Feedback from you regarding the recent Jeff Sutherland meeting indicates that the opportunity to ask questions and get answers from an authoritative speaker is VERY highly valued by you.
In response we are asking authoritative speakers to engage in longer, active Q&A. In this meeting, Ken graciously answers your hardest Scrum questions ON THE FLY.
Ken’s web site is www.controlchaos.com.
NOTE: The presentation and questions are sequenced and moderated by Dan Mezick. We are aiming at the broadest possible range of questions for Ken to answer. No one attendee is allowed to monopolize the presentation. Arrive with your question, ask it politely, and enjoy the rest of the presentation.
