At the Italian Python conference Alessio Bragadini illustrated some of the key aspects on how he works remotely and how a distributed team can be efficient in his talk Out of Sight, Out of Mind: Survival tricks and tools for remote developers. Thanks to his experience, in a matter of minutes Alessio clearly explains what implies to work away from the office and how to do it successfully by using specific methods and practices. The talk ends with a useful list of tips and tools to “survive” in a distributed team.

I have been part of either reviewing or organising multiple conferences, both locally and internationally. I am grateful for this because it helped me to learn about how to create a submission that has a better chance of getting accepted. During my reviewing for the AgileXX conferences I had the opportunity to pair with some experienced reviewers and agilists, which also helped me to grow and learn.

I’m going to share what I have gained from the experience, and hopefully, it can help others out there…

A few months ago, on the way back from the Global Scrum Gathering in Munich, agile42 CEO Marion Eickmann and senior coach Andrea Tomasini have been guests of Geoff Watts for a special episode of The Agile Pubcast, a great podcast he co-hosts with Paul Goddard.

In the pubcast usually Geoff and Paul share their musings over an informal drink, but for this segment the conversation happened in a taxi so it was more of a… taxicast. The main topic discussed was the coaching clinic that Andrea coordinated at the gathering, and general views about what it means to be ...

I recently had the pleasure of attending the Global Scrum Gathering in San Diego. The event had over 1000 attendees, 9 simultaneous tracks and a day of open sessions. The keynote speakers were Jeff Sutherland and Joel Neeb. I thought I’d write something up from some of the sessions I attended and share.

If you must go to a conference, there are worse places to go

budgeting

According to this year's State of Agile survey, the most common success measure for agile initiatives, at 53%, is on-time delivery. But if agile teams can choose how much work they take into a sprint, how can teams be sure of delivering pre-committed scope on time and on budget? There is more to agile delivery than product owners ordering a backlog of work for teams to work on.

From Dave Sharrock presentation

Recently at ProductCamp Vancouver 2017 I ran a workshop where I introduced Epic Budgeting, a practice that allows the product owner to steer a product across the line, delivering the expected ...

Coach Marius de Beer presented a talk Agile Decision Making in a Flat Structure at the SUGSA (Scrum User Group of South Africa) meeting in Cape Town on 23 February 2017.

The objective of this talk was to give teams practical techniques for decision making in a flat structure. Most Agile frameworks are geared towards delivering software through self-managing, self-organizing, cross-functional teams, where all team members have "equal say."  Holarchy (completely flat structure) is also becoming more popular in the technology world. In both situations, teams frequently waste considerable time when a decision is needed and there is no clear ...
