Agile-Lean Event in Galway, September 2012

On Friday September 21st I will be hosting a session on Agile-Lean Software Development with Kieran Conboy from NUI, Galway. This is an open event for practitioners at all levels to share challenges, experiences and solutions to Agile and Lean adoption. We will provide an opportunity for you to get practical answers to real problems with Agile or Lean adoption within your organisation. Our intention is to create a regular sustainable forum for companies in the West of Ireland and beyond practicing Agile and Lean to come together and share experiences.

Why should I attend?

The growing popularity of Agile and Lean methods such as Scrum, eXtreme Programming, TDD and Kanban indicate a strong desire to improve how we work and how we create value for our customers. While there are many potential benefits to Agile and Lean adoption there is no recipe to follow that will guarantee success. We can, however, learn from one another’s experiences.

Where and when will the event take place?

Friday September 21st, 2012, 1st Floor, J. E. Cairnes Building, NUI Galway.

9:30 am – 10 am Registration, Complimentary Tea/Coffee and Networking
10 am – 1 pm Main event
1 pm – 2 pm Complimentary lunch, networking

How much does it cost and how can I register?

The event is free but with limited places. Please register your interest by emailing or contacting Lorraine at (091) 49 2662.

What is the format of the event?

We will use a combination of hands-on exercises and open format to foster communication and collaboration among participants. You will have the opportunity to discuss any topic of interest and relevance to you in your Agile and Lean adoption. By the end of the gathering, all issues will receive full discussion, to the extent desired. A report of issues and discussions will be made available to participants.

The main event will be followed by a complimentary lunch, where participants will have a chance to mingle and network, as well as hear about some leading-edge research in Agile and Lean methods conducted by Lero at NUI Galway.
