      This month at Extreme Programming San Diego (XPSD), Carlton Nettleton
      will show us some techniques borrowed from the Six Sigma world to plan
      and monitor Agile transitions. The meeting will take place at Cardinal
      Health in San Diego at 6pm on Thursday, December 4th.

      ** Charting the Agile Transition **

      These days people are spending a lot time and effort investigating
      Agile software development practices. Unfortunately, not much guidance
      is provided on what areas of the enterprise need focus when planning
      an Agile initiative. Where do we start? Planning, teamwork,
      communication, quality, engineering practices, the people or some
      combination of these? In addition, how can senior leadership and
      executive sponsors monitor the Agile initiative? Using tools derived
      from Lean Six Sigma, Carlton will lead participants through a series
      of exercises on how to gather the Voice Of The Customer (VOC) and
      translate the VOC into Critical To Quality (CTQ) requirements which
      are crucial for your enterprise to be successful with their Agile
      transition. Finally, we will construct a scorecard to monitor progress
      and keep your Agile transition on-track. This will be an interactive
      workshop, so come prepared to participate and share.

      Carlton Nettleton is an independent software consultant providing
      mentoring and training for organizations wishing to promote innovation
      and produce higher quality products by encouraging collaborations
      between customers, business leaders and engineers. You can read more
      about Carlton and his thoughts surrounding Agile, Scrum and XP at his
      blog "Crouch, touch, pause...engage"
      (http://www.carltonnettleton.com/blog). He has been a leader in the
      San Diego Agile software development community since forming XPSD in
      2002 and has been Certified ScrumMaster since 2005.

      The meeting will be held at the Cardinal Health San Diego R&D HQ
      (http://xpsd.org/CardinalHealthDirections) from 6-7:30 PM on Thursday
      December 4th.
