ANN: SeattleScrum meeting on 26th September: Your real world challenges adopting
- We are pleased to announce the next meeting of the Seattle Scrum Users Group. Although
then intent is to focus primarily on Scrum, all flavors of Agile (XP, FDD, Industrial XP etc)
and Lean are welcome.
Our next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, September 26th, 2007 at the Cobalt
Group's Seattle headquarters. Chris Sterling will be facilitating a group discussion on "Your
real world challenges adopting Scrum". We welcome participants to bring their current or
historical issues in adopting Scrum on their teams or in their organizations. The group
discussion will allow multiple points of view to be expressed on how these issues can be
worked on or resolved. Since we should have many people with diverse Scrum experience
there should be a good cross-section of ideas.

( http://www.cobalt.com ), Danube Technologies ( http://www.Danube.com ), and
SolutionsIQ ( http://www.solutionsiq.com )
