7590RE: [scrumdevelopment] Help Wanted ... Introducing Agile
- May 28, 2005Hi Clarke,
I don't have a presentation for you, I'm afraid, because I don't use them.
(I gave up after experiencing much the same frustration as you're having.)
Instead, I run the evening as a Planning Game. I set the stories for the
first iteration, and then audience questions determine the rest. See
http://cgi.bramwell.plus.com/krblog/2004/11/an_agile_event.html for how one
such evening went.
