Meeting Topic: 10 Practices Every Team Should Employ

The heat and 4th of July mid-week holiday have us discombobulated here at Agile KC HQ.   So much so the next meeting announcement was not sent out last week.  No worries though, here’s what we have on tap for Thursday July 19, 2012 at 6:30 PM.

Martin Olson will return to the lectern to share 10 agile practices that should be the mainstay of any team whether they are following an agile, waterfall or chaos methodology.   It’s a good bet that your team is doing at least a couple of these practices, but may not have much definition and\or discipline around them.  So since you’re doing the work anyway (and incurring the cost), and the practices in question are central to any process, you might as well figure out how to leverage them moving forward.  That’s what we’re all about this month.

This presentation should have something for everyone.  If your team is mature in various agile practices come and share your experiences and insights and discuss ways your team might continue to improve.  If you’re working through an agile transition this session should help provide a baseline to measure your team’s progress to date.  If you’re just starting in implementing agile practices (or thinking about starting) this meeting will help clarify some of the practices your team should be considering as part of their activities.

As usual we’ll engage in a lot of Q&A during the presentation and save time for other topics at the end of the meeting so bring your questions, problems and friends.  Also feel free to bring your questionable, problematic friends.  Hope to see you Thursday!
