Productive Agile meetings
The biggest problem with Scrum and the other Agile methodologies is time spent in meetings. The actual problem is not the amount of time but how to use this time effectively. Many people think of meetings as a waste of time. If we apply simple principles in our meetings, the result is constructive discussions and an aligned team.
There are five essential meetings in Agile projects - plan the next period of time, review and demo the done work, refine the business requirements, dailies, and reflection - to help the team handle changes and work effectively. You probably have fallen into the trap of losing focus and transforming a meeting into wasting time. This workshop will show you how to hold and participate in productive meetings and understand your responsibilities during each meeting. As a result, you will become an indispensable part of any Agile team.
Teodora has been in the software industry for 15 years – she started as a developer and went through almost all roles involved in software project implementation. As a project manager, Teodora has successfully applied both Agile and Waterfall methodologies.
In her workshops Teodora uses an interactive approach for learning by doing. Apart from just sharing knowledge and going through pre-defined examples, she always engages the participants in activities with scenarios from their real-life experience. Applying the acquired knowledge and skills to known situations and scenarios during the workshop has proven to be a very effective way for deeper understanding and stronger engagement with the topics. This also leads to participants feeling more confident and being more effective in applying the knowledge and skills back at their workplace.
Teodora is a certified PMP®, PMI-ACP® and PSM®.
