Target Audience: All skill levels

This session covers what Agile and Agility mean. It will also go over Scrum, Scrum roles, Ceremonious, artifacts and other aspects of Scrum and Scrum teams. It is an intro to these topics but those who are already practicing Scrum are also welcome. As a traditional project manager (PMP) I always thought I was putting a considerable effort into something the PMBOK, project plans and schedules ..etc didn’t really account for. I never could put my finger on it until I ran into Agile Scrum. It was the team and organizational dynamics and the soft skills that we only gave lip service to. During the session, I will share my Agile transformation journey, a comparison between Agile and Waterfall, and most importantly, why Agile Scrum is, IMHO, genius when it comes to the issues that always troubled traditional project management and teams. Agile and Scrum do not make these issues magically disappear but they provide the right common sense framework to the ScrumMaster to deal with them. Come join us and bring your questions.
