September Meeting - Data Analytics in an Agile way! by Jim Sammons

September Meeting - Data Analytics in an Agile way! by Jim Sammons

When: September 12th, 2019  (Second Thursday) 

Where: TBD

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

 

 

 

Data Analytics in an Agile way!

 

Do you have data?  I bet you do. An increasing amount of Data Science, Data and Analytics or Business Intelligence teams are using agile methods to solve complex problems.  In this discussion I will share some observations from the field on how teams like these have successfully used Kanban, Scrum and other techniques to drive better conversations and higher value outcomes for their organizations. 

 

We'll talk about classes of service, work item aging, Backlog Refinement and other ideas and how, if at all, they need to change when working with data.

 

About Jim Sammons

 

My passion is helping people do work that matters with intention, happiness and impact. Throughout my career I have worked with clients of all sizes, industries and technologies and the common focus I bring to each role is “making people better.” I strive to help those around me improve through mentorship, training, workshops or just grabbing a coffee and lending an ear to their experiences. This focus on continued improvement and servant leadership is why I love what I do each day. 

 

As a Professional Scrum Trainer at Scrum.org I bring my passion for agility to each of my training classes, workshops and conferences in support of the Scrum community at large.

 

In my spare time I enjoy making things out of wood, metal and other materials. I enjoy reading, spending time with my family and taking care of the animals who call my property home.

August Meeting - IT & Beyond: Leveraging the Agile Mindset in Functions Outside of IT by Rich Theil

August Meeting - IT & Beyond: Leveraging the Agile Mindset in Functions Outside of IT by Rich Theil

When: August 8th, 2019  (Second Thursday) 

Where: TEK Systems 3825 Edwards Road, Suite 270 Cincinnati OH 45209

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

 

 

 

IT & Beyond: Leveraging the Agile Mindset in Functions Outside of IT

Do you experience friction between Agile IT teams and non-IT teams because you're using two different "operating systems" for getting work done? The IT team runs Agile while the rest of the organization tries to figure out what "MVP", "Sprint", and "Scrum" mean and why they all matter so much. 

 

If Agile is a mindset and a culture (which we believe it is), then how do you translate this culture into non-IT teams?

 

In this interactive and engaging conversation, we will share the story of an Agile transformation that started in IT and expanded into other functions. We'll also talk about the benefits of Business Agility – implementing Agile practices in functions outside of IT to drive organizational value and employee engagement. This is a great talk for you and your business partners to attend together.

A collection of agile active learning exercises

Let’s assume you talk to people at work and sometimes have to facilitate agile learning or large meetings.  You don’t want to have a boring meeting or equally boring lecture now do you?

If you want to break out of boring and enter into engaging, this is the presentation for you.  I will be running a series of games, active learning exercises, videos and more.  These are techniques that you can tailor or use directly at your job.  If you’re already familiar with some of the basic agile games (paper airplane or passing pennies), don’t worry, this is going to be new and unusual activities that you probably haven’t seen before.

The best part about this presentation is that it’s going to be fun.
