Our monthly Cape Town meeting takes place on 4th November with Rian van der Merwe talking about “How to stay sane as a Product Owner”.

When: 2 November 2010, 5:45PM

VenueDiscovery Health, 155 West Street, Sandton, Ground Floor 155 West Auditorium, Johannesburg

Topic: Navigating the Agile flame wars

This event is the launch of the SUGSA JHB event. Come join us to setup the user group and listen to a renowned agile advocate, Marius de Beer.

“We must remember that Scrum is a vehicle to deliver business value, reliably and at a sustainably fast pace. Implementing Scrum, just for saying you are, is a failure. So is becoming religious about Scrum and engaging in “mine is better than yours” flame wars with Kanban, Lean, and the other frameworks. In this talk we will focus on finding common ground in Agile, and understanding paths to maturity in Agile.”
