Scrum Breakfast in Bern and Basel

Thanks to the effort and motivation of Mark Hediger, Joscha Jenni und Ralph Jocham and the support of their respective companies (Actionize, Mimacom and Zühlke), there are monthly meetups for the Scrum Communities in Bern and Basel. It is my honor to kick off the events with a talk, appropriately about getting started with Scrum.

Change Process: How do I bring Scrum (or any other idea) into my company? By Peter Stevens

As a developer, tester, project manager or manager, you are intrigued by Scrum. But you are having difficulties gaining support for your ideas. You would like to convince your management and colleagues, that you company or department should use Scrum, or at least should give it a try. How can you motivate or even mobilize your colleagues, so that the support your ideas?

Based on experiences in my own projects, we will discuss a number of possible approaches, which are helpful in bringing about change. An Introduction in Change-Processes and how to guide them effectively.

These talks will be given in German!
