About this event

In addition to the networking opportunities, great food, and good-quality beverages, we'll feature the following presentations:

Better Communications Through Jira by Barbara Bazemore Kiszka (Bose)

Barbara will show how a Definition of Ready (DoR) can be used to improve team communications and efficiency to improve project outcomes.

Impacts and Influences of Organizational Laws by Boris Berenberg (Atlas Authority)

Boris will share 5 prevalent organizational laws, discuss how they impact teams, and what this means in relation to Atlassian applications.

Scaling Agile with Jira by Philip Heijkoop (ALM Works)

Moving to agile in a large organization is never easy. There are ideal scenarios, which look great on paper, but don’t always work in real life. Luckily Jira combined with Marketplace apps offer the flexibility to support almost any process and can adapt as these processes change.

Phil will talk about some of the challenges of scaling agile, the things you need to consider when choosing the tools and some common approaches ALM Works sees their customers use when Scaling Agile.
