Achieving More with LeSS: Alignment and Agility using Large-Scale Scrum

Being Agile at scale is tremendously difficult to achieve. Many times, the practices used for aligning an organization using Agile impede the delivery of real value. In this session discuss how Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) can help your company have awesome alignment without sacrificing agility. LeSS is a lightweight framework that enables empiricism such that teams and organizations can inspect and adapt based on their own experiences. We will walk through the basics of the LeSS and LeSS Huge frameworks during this session. Your guide for this journey will be the experienced and certified LeSS Practitioner Darren Terrell. He is knowledgeable in multiple scaling frameworks and transforming businesses.

November Meeting - The Nexus Framework w/ Dr. Charles Suscheck

November Meeting - The Nexus Framework w/ Dr. Charles Suscheck

When: November 08, 2018  (Second Thursday) 

Networking: 6:00 - 7:30 pm (networking starts at 5:30 pm)

The Nexus Framework presented by Dr. Charles Suscheck

The premise for Scrum.org’s Nexus is that ability to scale depends on your ability to continuously identify and remove dependencies, integrate work at all levels, and create and inspect holistic increments. Nexus is Scrum, scaled and tuned to manage dependencies with multiple teams working on one product large. It creates a communication pathway that identifies and resolves dependencies by building on the existing Scrum framework and values. The result is a scaling framework for development groups of up to 100 people to create one reified Increment or product with minimal overhead - maximized outcome.

If you are looking for a framework to take advantage of a product mindset, Nexus and Professional Scaled Scrum is an answer based on Scrum. If you are looking for a project-based scaling mechanism, look at other frameworks.

July Meeting - Agile Lean Coffee w/ AgileCincy Staff

When: January 10, 2019  (Second Thursday) 

Networking: 6:00 - 7:30 pm (networking starts at 5:30 pm)


Agile Lean Coffee

Come join us an AgileCincy Lean Coffee meetup... the best learning community Cincinnati has to offer! We'll use the lean coffee method of agenda-free, democratic conversation: bring your topics and ideas for discussion and engage in conversations about Agile, people, and the ways we work together! The concept is kind of like Open Space: a group of people gather and have a structured, yet agenda-less meeting. The outcome: ideation that truly originates from the employees. This format is very popular in other Agile communities and we’re bringing that style here for the evening. For more information on Lean Coffee: http://www.leancoffee.org
