September 2010 meeting

The September 2010 meeting of the APLN-OC chapter will focus on the continued utility of physical taskboards to track and communicate development project details.

We will meet Thursday, September 9 at the Automobile Club of Southern California, 3333 Fairview Rd, Costa Mesa 92626. The meeting is in the Rancho Cucamonga training room, which is a new location for us. When you see the signs for “Credit Union” and “Purchasing” on the ACSC campus, you have found the place. You may find the site map below helpful. “North” on this map is to the right, if you are as confused as I have been by this graphic. The meeting will start at 6:00 PM, doors open for refreshments at 5:30. We should wrap up by 8:30 PM or earlier.

With virtual tools proliferating, Bachan Anand will lead a discussion on physical taskboards. Why do physical taskboards remain important? How can they be used most effectively? In what other settings are physical taskboards also effective?

Taskboards help to get the team engaged, increase process transparency and foster collaboration. How can taskboards be structured to provide maximum benefit to the team? How can taskboards provide more value for other stakeholders and roles, the ScrumMaster, Product Owner and organizational management?

This session will benefit existing Agile professionals as well as current and prospective Agile team members. By setting a stake in the ground on physical taskboards, we will attempt to organize a future meeting to present and discuss how virtual taskboard equivalents and project management tools fit into the complete picture.

As an added bonus, we will be raffling off a copy of Lyssa Adkin's new book, Coaching Agile Teams to attendees In addition, a 50% discount off the normal fee for Lyssa's upcoming CSM class October 7-8 in Santa Ana will be presented to a fortunate attendee.
