PMINJ 2020 September Agile Discussion Group
Wednesday, 30 Sep - 6:00 - 8:00 PM

Session 1: Feature Teams, Component Teams, Single-function Teams... why so many kinds?

Session 2: Who Does What In Large Scale Scrum (LeSS)?
Time:  6 to 8:00pm

Session 1: Feature Teams, Component Teams, Single-function Teams... why so many kinds?
Organizations have a confusing array of things called "teams." We will discuss the different types of teams we typically see, whether or when this is beneficial, and what we can do about it.  This session accommodates up to 100 participants so you must join the meeting early to get your spot.

Session 2: Who Does What In Large Scale Scrum (LeSS)?
Who talks to customers?  Who decides who is on which team?  Does the Scrum Master have any authority?  Who makes spending decisions?  We will play a game that helps sort out which roles could be most appropriate to assume which responsibilities.  This session accommodates 30 participants so you must register as soon as you receive the separate email invitation.

Michael James (MJ)


Michael James (MJ), was selected as a Scrum Trainer in 2006 by one of Scrum's Michael Jamesoriginal proponents, Ken Schwaber.  MJ has helped countless organizations in many countries, created the world's most popular online learning resource for Scrum, the most successful illustrated distillation of Scrum's definition, and the Scrum Master Checklist referenced in books by half a dozen other Agile authors.

MJ is a software process mentor, team coach, and Scrum trainer with skills in Product Ownership (business), Scrum Mastery (facilitation), and the development team engineering practices (TDD, refactoring, continuous integration, pair programming) that allow Scrum to work. MJ has been involved with LeSS (Large Scale Scrum) longer than anyone else on the US West Coast. He is a recovering "software architect" with programming experience back to the late 1970s, and including control systems for aircraft and spacecraft. If you have been an airline passenger, you have probably already benefited from MJ's software.

Volunteers have found MJ's work useful enough to translate into Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, German, Polish, French, Russian, Dutch, Portuguese, Korean, Vietnamese, Czech, Hebrew, Latvian, Serbian, and Turkish.
