Why the name Scrum Breakfast?

The Scrum Breakfast in Zürich is an event which I organize and moderate. Sponsored by my future ex-employer, namics, the Scrum Breakfast is monthly exchange of information around Scrum. The breakfast offers discussion, information and hands-on experience to CIO's, executive and operational project managers. The program starts with a short presentation about on an in interesting topic around Scrum. Then follows a moderated discussion among the participants to encourage an exchange of know-how and experiences.

The Scrum Breakfast takes place the first Wednesday of each month. The doors open at 8am and the talk starts at 8.35 (so people coming by train can arrive at 8.30 and still catch the start of the talk). The presentations & discussion are usually in German.

In April, I will become an independent consultant, but I will continue to organize the Scrum Breakfast in Zürich and namics will continue to sponsor it.

So the Scrum Breakfast is a focal point for the Scrum community in Switzerland and that's what this blog should be as well.
