Mike Cohn On-Site at the October Meeting: 10/27 6:30PM CT

Join us on TUE 10/27/2009 at 6:30PM CT for an on-site presentation and Q&A from one of Scrum’s greatest thought leaders; Mike Cohn. Mike has graciously offered to come to Dallas for this one single event and assist our DFW Scrum User Group advance their knowledge of Estimating in the Agile world.

Estimates drive the accuracy of our delivery dates. All too often we “think” we know how to estimate, but how do you train your developers (who are giving the estimates) to estimate? Mike will give a brief presentation on the topic, provide some exercises, and then hold a Q&A session to answer your questions (yes, he will be bringing planning poker cards as well to hand out).

Mike will be giving away a few of his books (Agile Estimating and Planning, User Stories Applied, and his newest book due out in November: Succeeding with Agile). I had the great opportunity to attend one of his Certified Scrum Product Owner classes last month and it really was an eye opening experience on how to ensure your team is ignited with purpose. Scrum talks about starting with a backlog, but how do you get a well formed backlog so your teams can execute? Mike will be in Dallas in February to provide CSPO and CSM training. I highly recommend attending: http://www.mountaingoatsoftware.com/public-training.

The DFW Scrum User Group is *FREE* and we will be providing dinner. We just ask that you register so we can ensure we have enough food and space (seats are limited).
