For those that are Atlassian old timers and had the opportunity to interact with the Atlassian team, you will easily recognize some of their original team members, some of them a legend like Nick Muldoon (former Atlassian and Twitter team member and founder of Easy Agile). During this AUG meeting you will have the opportunity to ask him about Agile as he will be presenting directly from Sidney.
User story mapping is an excellent practice for every scrum and kanban team as it enables members and stakeholders have a shared understanding of the customer and their challenges. Teams complete a story mapping session with an ordered and estimated backlog, split into sprints and ready for the team to start delivering.
AND.... A night for surprises and gifts! if you attend you will get your own Book about Agile Marketing! (30 books available)
Join book author Bill Cushard sharing his story and lessons learned.
"The Mistakes We Made (and Lessons Learned) Implementing Agile Marketing"
When our marketing team implemented agile, specifically scrum, we made a lot of mistakes. We made some trade offs between speed of execution and perfection, and suffered some adoption consequences along the way. Some of the mistakes were process-oriented and some were Jira configuration mistakes. This talk walks you through these mistakes and the lessons we learned, so you can avoid them in your agile implementation.
