Add to calendar

Are you struggling to achieve results from your agile and Scrum teams? Are you having trouble with user story writing or with effective estimation and forecasting? Are your sprint reviews and retrospectives low focus and low energy? What about gaining traction on the organization-side of things? Do your leaders actually understand the underlying principles? Are they measuring things properly? And what about Scrum at Scale—how’s that going? If you have questions, any questions, about how to improve specific practices or generally how to improve your agile journey, then this tutorial is for you. Join Ryan Ripley, an agile leader, practitioner, trainer, and coach, as he does something quite unique. Instead of a canned presentation, Ryan will customize the tutorial to the needs of the participants—gather your questions, create a backlog, and work to answer all your tough questions. And his advice will not in any way be academic or purist in nature. You’ll be met with sage, pragmatic, and real-world experienced advice—world-class agile coaching advice. And you’ll take away many practical ideas to help you take your Scrum to the next level!
