Organized by the Scrum Alliance, the Scrum Gathering in Las Vegas in early May has been a great success and the first sold out Gathering with over 500 attendees! For members of Scrum Alliance all presentations are now posted online on the organization's site under the Presentations tab.

Coaches from agile42 were present as always and you can also find their presentations here. Dave Sharrock presented Giving Teams the Roots to Grow and Wings to Fly, an interactive session introducing useful and proven practices that increase the sticking power of new agile teams, allowing them to stay agile long into the future. In fact, to create sustainable change, agile teams have to overcome organizational gravity that pulls them back into the old, comfortable ways of working.


You can check the slides and note of Giving Teams the Roots to Grow and Wings to Fly on SlideShare.

Brad Swanson presented From Doing Scrum to Being Agile: Lessons Learned Transforming a Culture, a case study of the agile transformation at Ericsson Mobile Core from 2009-2012 and using John Kotter's 8-step change model for leading the change.

Slides for Transforming a culture using Kotter’s change model: a case study are available on SlideShare as well. 
Dave has also presented the talk The Challenge for the next Decade…  because Andrea Tomasini could not be in Las Vegas.
