Meeting Topic: How Strong is your Agile Foundation?
Meeting Learning:
The Agile Manifesto and 12 supporting Principles are our foundation. Building upon these ideas should provide us a decent opportunity for success.  For many, however, these ideas and beliefs remain elusive and are just theories;  we SHOULD work with the business every day (#4) but our customer is not available, etc.  We'll dive into discussion on how to strengthen your foundation as well as provide you some techniques to have all 12 principles memorized by the time you leave.  Why take the time to memorize them?  You'll see.....  Come join us!
Description:

Using some fun learning techniques, you'll memorize all twelve principles and discuss why these are important to us as Agilists. This will be an interactive session that is sure to be a lot of fun.

A key component that of the Agile manifesto is the team: small, autonomous, cross-functional teams focused on the customer and the service provided. If you or your organization are struggling to create and support Lean | Agile teams this session is for you. Come join us!
