Agile-Spirit is launching an Agile Café Meetup as part of our Agile Community activity, bringing together all Agile leaders, enriching participants with recent Agile related topics and case studies, delivered by top Mentors & Lecturers.
At this meetup we’re going to have three insightful talks –
1. Running Agile for Remote/Mobile workers (by Ilana Vaiman)
Abstract: The millennial generation, now entering into employment, will reshape the world of work. Are you ready?
We are no longer in the era of the factory worker; we are now in the era of the knowledge worker and the knowledge worker is more often a mobile worker.
Agile project management methodology could be the key factor for organizing the progressive process. Agile working embraces both the physical and digital “workplace” in empowering and supporting people to work where, when and how they choose to maximise their productivity, innovation and ultimately to deliver best value to the organisation.
2. Remote Scrum – Why & How? (by Assaf Almaz)
Abstract: McAfee Use Case about how utilizing Scrum is a key factor in productivity improvement while working with Remote Teams
3. Remote Agile – Getting the most of remote teams interaction using JIRA, Confluence & HipChat (by Shirley Cohen)
Abstract: “Individuals and interactions over processes and tools” is the first value in the Agile Manifesto.
The benefits of remote teams aren’t without some trade-offs. For many teams, it’s difficult to adopt the agile practice without the face-to-face interactions.
