8th meetup on Lean&Agile @ Thessaloniki

A key principle of scrum is its recognition that during production processes, the customers can change their minds about what they want and need (often called “requirements churn”), and that unpredicted challenges cannot be easily addressed in a traditional predictive or planned manner. As such, scrum adopts an empirical approach-accepting that the problem cannot be fully understood or defined, focusing instead on maximizing the team’s ability to deliver quickly and respond to emerging requirements. In this meetup we will focus on theory part and we will see see how to apply scrum on our projects using visual studio online!

Andy comes from a proud name of the computing industry, IBM. Andy has experienced full software lifecycles in both an Agile and project management driven context, and has spent the last seven years managing and facilitating multi-discipline teams within Agile environments. He is Lead Agile Concultant for IBM and is driving Agile transformation. This September at Agile Greece Summit we will have the chance to hear him speak about: “Water-Scrum-Fall, Unicorns and Rainbows“.

I hope by its nature it will evolve and new frameworks and practices...
