ANYTHING ELSE?

Did we mention Happy Hour?

Since we are running this event using Agile and Scrum, make sure to check back often as we add more details about the event.

NEED PDUs?

Due to the Global Scrum Gathering being held in MN in April, the Scrum Alliance declined sponsoring Scrum Day MN 2018. Don’t Fret!

You can still self-report 8 SEUs (Scrum Education Units) through the Scrum Alliance under Category C.

Scrum Day MN is a volunteer run event that is not affiliated with the Project Management Institute (PMI) so we are not a Registered Education Provider with PMI. Any PMI members wishing to claim the event for PMI Professional Development Units (PDUs) will need to self-report under an appropriate PMI category.

Agile Transformation

Every Agile transformation includes pulling out the right approach or framework from the Agile toolkit. 

All proceeds from the event after expenses are met will be donated to a Minnesota charity. No ticket refunds will be issued after 10/4/2018.

In 2016 we are proud to share that $5000 was donated to Second Harvest! Our 2018 charity recipient is Solid Ground.

We are a government setup. Is Scrum really for us?

Speaker: Swaps Mohanty

I questioned whether agile is for us or not for a long time. Finally, it was quite a bit of homework and a big leap of faith. Is it working for us? I will tell you how we approached it, prepared for it, what I was expecting out of it and how it is turning out from a leadership perspective.

Planting the Seeds of Change - A Case Study of PowerObjects' Implementation of Scrum

She will share with you what led to the tipping point and the vision she designed on how PowerObjects could pivot into Scrum.

The big question she is trying to answer is: How can we deliver scalable and sustainable solutions in a rapidly changing business?

Building a Roadmap for your Team’s Continuous Improvement Journey

Speaker: Maclore Christensen

At Thomson Reuters, we have developed a set of tools that we use to help us understand a team’s capabilities across the Product Development Life Cycle, and where change to process and/or approach could result in better outcomes. What makes these tools different from other “maturity” assessments is a three-pronged approach that tells us not just where we are, but helps us visualize a path to where we want to be.

Journey to Agility in a Government Organization

Speaker: Andy Rinker

It all started with the best of intentions; to increase the speed of delivery, quickly respond to change, and increase customer satisfaction. What could possibly go wrong? Along with all of those noble intentions came several struggles. This talk will tell the story of adopting Scrum at Hennepin County; how we challenged organizational hierarchy, introduced transparency, and how we embraced a world without specific roles for development team members.

The Struggle is Real

Speaker: Kim Hauf

The struggle is real for a Scrum Master longing for an organizational Agile adoption. Kim has walked the journey from grass roots single team implementation to a company-wide top down acceptance of Agile. She would like to share some of the successes and learnings that this journey has provided. Things won’t always go as you planned, compassion isn’t always nice and Scrum Masters are not pushovers. They are NOT that kind of angel.

We're Masters of Scrum: We don’t Manage People, Calendars or Tasks! – a Scrum Master’s Tale of Courage

Speaker: Farah Khan

As a Scrum Master have you been asked to serve as an administrative assistant capturing notes and calendar items? Or to serve with a stretched-thin-absent Product Owner? Have you been asked to “stay fluid”? You know be a Scrum Master and then a Product Owner and then a Team member? An overlooked Scrum Value is courage. In this session I will share my personal story of courage in response to these anti-patterns and why I believe courage is the most important quality in hiring a Scrum Master.

The role of a Manager in Scrum: Letting go and letting Agility happen

Speaker: Sue Ponsford

When a team transitions to Scrum, the culture change for them is obvious: team instead of individual accountability, daily standups and product reviews, pushing work to done within the time box, blah blah blah. The transition for a manager is less obvious and we’re left feeling at loose ends wondering what’s left to do if the Product Owner is prioritizing the work and the ScrumMaster is removing the day to day roadblocks. Participants in this session will be challenged think about what type of manager they’ve been and start to develop strategies to support their agile team effectively.

Come hear Ellen share stories of courage, adaptation, learning on the fly, and finding her voice as an advocate for Scrum.
