Are you tired of “watered down agile” and “flaccid Scrum”? Fed up with people saying “agile doesn’t work” when they won’t follow the practices or your suggestions? Are you done with the people who just don’t get it?


This session is about sharing our wins and successes. What positives are happening with you? Where do we have people creating amazing products, working as cohesive teams, and delighting their customers? What successful experiments have you run, and where are people enjoying greater satisfaction in their work?

There will be no complaints in this session. Sarcasm, dogmatism, fighting, and method competition will not be tolerated.

Central Ohio is an amazing community with talented people doing fascinating things. Come prepared to share and celebrate our wins so that we may continue to build a bright and amazing future together, and be the beacon of good within our communities!

Thanks to George Dinwiddie and Lyssa Adkins for inspiring this event!
