Extreme Manufacturing Yellow Belt Class

Extreme Manufacturing Yellow Belt Class

Accelerate all of your company with Joe Justice, the creator of eXtreme Manufacturing. Together we will practice with attendees how to set up new teams, collaborate with remote teams, stay in sync across a wide portfolio of backlogs, and work as cross functional teams with generalizing specialists. We’ll get technical too, with Test First Design for non-software and software work, Contract First Design, and Object Oriented Architecture for rapid innovation work.

This session is perfect fit for software practitioners, those new to Agile methods who may benefit from a hands-on example, and those looking for concrete practices to apply Agile beyond software delivery teams, such as leadership, HR, finance, engineering, manufacturing, marketing, and research.

Join Joe for a full day tutorial at Agile Testing Days on Monday November 10, 2014. Click here to register.

Jeff at EMC

Jeff at EMC

Last week, Jeff visited the storage giant EMC, a long time Scrum Inc. friend. He delivered the third iteration of his TedX Talk. The talk is a synopsis of the divergent experiences that helped Jeff create the first Scrum team at Easel in 1993 and is based on his new book, Scrum: The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time. The presentation was extremely well received. In fact, Jeff has been invited back to inspire more EMC teams soon.

You can download the EMC Slides and watch the original talk here.

Scrum the Book out in the UK

Scrum the Book out in the UK

The book hit the shelves in the UK this week. The North American version is out on September 30th. You can pre-order the book now and get a sneak-peak at the first chapter which tells the story of the FBI’s Sentinel project.

The FBI, in trying to move their computer systems that track case files into the modern era, spent a half-a-billion dollars. Unfortunately, not one line of code was ever deployed.  Using Scrum, the system was built in 20 months using 5 percent of the budget.

Click here to get the entire first chapter and learn how the Scrum framework enabled teams to build a massive systems critical software project five times faster and 95 percent cheaper.
