Our chapter’s Agile Local Community of
Interest (LCI) group meets in-person about three times a
year prior to the main presentation at our monthly
programs. Some attendees have expressed an interest
to extend the discussions that occur at these
gatherings. Furthermore, it is not always convenient
or possible for members to attend these occasional monthly
Therefore, as Agile encourages experimentation, we are
going to pilot a virtual discussion group for three
months. During this time, we will be asking the
attendees to provide feedback so we can gauge the interest
of our members in participating in these events and make
adjustments as necessary. The discussion group will
concentrate on topics regarding agile project management
challenges, best practices, and experiences. This as
an additional forum for these discussions to be more
accessible to our members.
The group will meet once a month for an hour the Tuesday
following each of PMINJ’s monthly meetings. Each meeting
will have a specific topic for discussion. The
meetings will be conducted virtually using Zoom and will
be facilitated by a veteran Agile practitioner. To
help foster an engaging experience, all attendees are
encouraged to actively participate in the discussion and
not just listen and observe. This is also the best
way to get the most benefit out of the discussion group.
