PM Insight Sunnyvale - My Agile Retrospective


PM Insight-Sunnyvale:

My Agile Retrospective   

When:   Wed June 10, 2020 6:15pm-8:30pm
Where:  Virtual Meeting (Registrants will receive joining details from Meeting Leader) 


Having been involved in the Agile world for many years, Moshe had his share of bad and good experiences. He has seen the same issues coming up time and again, with results that sometimes were dramatic. Uneducated management, reluctant team members, clueless Product Owners, misguided ScrumMasters, process extremists. He also saw good things, great professionals and team members who really “got it”. He has learned from both.

In this discussion, Moshe will do his own retrospective and list some things he learned - the “start doing”, “stop doing” and “continue doing”. This will be an open discussion in which the participants will be invited to share their own experiences and provide the best strategies for making Agile really work.
