Bruce McCarthy

Bruce McCarthy

Topic:

Most of us can remember being part of a truly awesome team. We were hyper-effective. We were constantly in a groove. We looked forward to coming to work, even to meetings. We had that indefinable sense that things were going right, and we could do whatever it took together.

If your team has lost that sense of awesomeness, I can show you a simple technique you can use to take it back. I’ll walk you through a new and better way to run retrospectives that puts the power back in the hands of the team and makes them more and more awesome with each cycle. And I’ll show you how it has transformed my teams in just a few sprints.

I’ll also show you a simple way to track progress, keep teams accountable to their own decisions, and escalate key blockers to those in charge.

Member Discussion Forums PDF Print E-mail

We have a new feature!  It took a lot of work to implement, and required significant changes to the layout of the website (we think for the better), but we've added member discussion forums to Agile New England!  It's open for all Agile New England members, but you must be logged in to even see the menu option for it.  This is in part because it is meant as a benefit to our members (defined in our rules as anyone who has a login on our website), and in part for security and spam prevention.  The addition of the discussion forums is a big step in our efforts to help build the Agile community, even outside our regular meetings.

Once logged in, you will see a new menu option under Members Only, called Member Forums.  These forums can be used for talking about a particular meeting, beginner topics, advanced topic, jobs needed or opportunities announced, offering the group feedback, and even for coordinating rideshares, as was asked at several meetings.  For more information, be sure to visit the Rules and Help tabs once you get into the Member Forums.  Feel free to give us feedback on how we can improve the discussion forums.
