Italian Agile Day is coming

Category: agile,megiordano scalzo @ 4:23 pm

It’s near the end of November, it’s Italian Agile Day time.
As each year, it’s the time to gather all Italian Agile Practitioners, or wannabe-Agile, for a community day.
The site is the nice Hotel Savoia Regency in Bologna.
As usual, the timetable is very interesting, and I still haven’t decided what conferences attend: I’ll float around and I’ll make gut decisions.

See you, there!

Scrum in an Hour

Category: agile,presentationgiordano scalzo @ 10:50 pm

Some time ago, I attended a Scrum Master Course (I’m embarrassed to call it Certification…) held by the Agile pioneer and team dynamics expert Joseph Pelrine.

It was an exciting and enriching experience, although little sigular because we were only two student: Pierlugi Pugliese and me!

Anyway, back to work my boss asked me to prepare a little presentation on Scrum to the upper and middle management; so I looked around and took several sources to write a simple, but appealing presentation.

The presentation was a success so that I performed it three more time to the whole Engineering department!
