Thanks to everyone who joined the event and participated. Some great and challenging questions! Some Kodak moments are below. Apologies for having most of images facing the wall, next time we shall have more facing our great audience :). https://www.meetup.com/Large-Scale-Scrum-LeSS-in-NYC/events/229733065/ https://www.meetup.com/New-York-Adventures-with-Agile/events/229733284/
A barrage of great questions made tonight’s session a long non-stop engaging dialogue. As annual performance appraisal “specialists” say (I am being very sarcastic now 😉 ), the intensity of today’s discussion “EXCEEDED my expectations”, so maybe someone will give me a bonus ;). The collaboration system Nureva that I used in place of a slide deck was really helpful. My personal retrospective: If I had just fewer slides on the wall, I could’ve made my presentation even more interactive. So, for me, another lesson learned: LeSS is more. And I promise to do it next time. The next LeSS discussion will be a deep dive into one of LeSS topics. Please, post questions or initiate discussions below.
And keep in mind:
Note: Many thanks to Adventures with Agile – UK-based Community of Practice for scaling agile and organisational change,, for organizing this great event.
