Next week I’m starting a trip to the beautiful Brno in Czech Republic that will include a talk at the Agilia conference on March 26th. I’ll speak about “Will agile work in my embedded development environment?”.
Agile approaches like Scrum is designed for software development, but will it also work when we add electronics development and mechanical construction to the practices? Come and get insights from the experiences of a Certified Scrum Trainer who actually did the work himself. You will learn about how to setup teams that have the combined skill-set of software, electronics and mechanical engineers, how to challenge or cope with long lead times for physical components and how you can have a Minimal Viable Product (MVP) even early in the project. This is a companion to the keynote we’ve given earlier this year at the Embedded meets Agile conference in Munich and you can download the slides from SlideShare.
In the following two days, March 27th and March 28th, I will facilitate a Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) training organised through Aguarra Agile Competence Center in Brno. As it happens with all our Scrum public courses, it will lead to a Scrum Alliance certification. In this course we will explain how particular agile or Scrum roles typically manifest themselves in enterprise environments. The course is an interactive workshop filled with lots of exercises whose goal is to demonstrate the difference between traditional and agile approaches to product management and software development. We will also discuss real-world organizational changes such as managing large or multiple teams, release planning and tracking progress through the right metrics. Most importantly we will answer your specific questions regarding your individual situation and organization.
