Nitin Khanna and Bob Phillips


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 meetings. 

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.

Tuesday, 22 January 2019 - 6:00 - 7:00 PM

Topic: Scrum Overview

Is your organization following Scrum the right way or do you find teams doing a few ceremonies and calling it Scrum?  We will discuss:
  • What is Scrum?
  • 3 Scrum Roles
  • 4 Scrum Events
  • 3 Scrum Artifacts
  • General Q&A
    • What other agile topics would you like to learn about?
    • Was this topic helpful?
    • What do you think about the meeting format?
You will obtain a better understanding about Scrum Roles, Events, and Artifacts that your Scrum Teams should have to be successful.  At the end of the meeting you will understand everything that your teams should be doing when they say they're following Scrum.
