Coming Events - May & June

There's a lot happening in the next few weeks:
  • Vote! 3 days left: Quick Poll - How well does your company deliver Business Value?
  • Internet Briefing Software Development Conference
  • June Scrum Breakfast in Zurich
  • Course - Agile Project Management with Target Process
Vote! 3 days left: Quick Poll - How well does your company deliver Business Value?

There was a lot of interest in the latest quick poll - How agile is your company? For the first time, I had over 100 visitors in a single day, but the actual number of answers has been modest. So vote! (Poll is top right on the page). And if you can get me slashdotted, that would be great!

Internet Briefing Software Development Conference

Next week, Reto Hartinger's will be holding back to back conferences on Successful Project Management and Rich Internet Applications. I have the honor of opening Day 1 with a discussion of Lean Software Development. Jean-Pierre König of namics will present Scrum and XP, Aaron Arcos of Google will present his experiences with converting to agile methods in the Gmail project. 12 other speakers will present topics ranging from software quality to current technologies like Silverlight, Rail, Flash, and much more.

This should be very interesting for anyone who wants to improve their software development practice, either and the management or engineering level. BTW - attendees of the Scrum Breakfast in Zürich qualify for member rates at the conference. Let me know if you want to qualify.

June Scrum Breakfast in Zurich

Professor Stuart Read of the IMD in Lausanne will be giving a talk on Guidewire, a 500 person software house organized entirely according to scrum. If you want to see how Scrum can help your company achieve competitive advantage, this talk is for you. Register for the talk and join us for lunch.

And last but not least:

Course - Agile Project Management with Target Process

This week, I will be holding my new course Agile (Scrum) Project Management with Target Process for the first time. Andrey Mihailenko and Eugene Khasenevich from Target Process will be joining 8 participants from 3 countries. I'm excited (and working hard to get the finishing touches on the course program done!). BTW, even though the registration deadline has passed, there is still room for one more person to register.
