Debate - Scrum To Kanban

This event has already taken place. Have a look at our upcoming events to see what’s coming up.

Welcome to the next Agile Reading meetup!

Our mission is to grow the Agile community in Reading and share new trends and techniques in the Agile world.

Join us for this month’s Agile Reading meetup where we will be running our next Agile debate group. In this interactive session, attendees will form the debating teams.

The Motion is "Scrum To Kanban" - The ‘house’ believes that Agile delivery teams that experience high levels of variability (e.g. production support, stakeholder direction change) should drop their unnecessary Scrum events / roles / artifacts and adopt more Kanban practices.

We will facilitate a structured debate with pre and post-voting to see how the group is swayed by the discussion.

Adam Hall is a Scrum Master and experienced Agile Coach for AND Digital, with a keen interest in empowering teams, on and offshore. He is currently enjoying the puzzle of helping digital teams adapt to a world that suddenly works fully remote.

As Head of Delivery Innovation AND Chief Methodologist, Stuart is accountable for keeping AND Digital ahead of the curve across the full spectrum of end-to-end delivery principles and practices (Agile, Product, Tech, Digital, Business Ops, etc). This involves deeply understanding what we're doing amazingly right now, researching where we should be innovating next for greatest impact, and forecasting how we could embed the 'next next' emergent principles and practices into our delivery work. Prior to AND Digital, Stuart worked as a Digital Project and Programme Manager across a number of different sectors (retail, government, high service distribution, online gaming). In these organisations, he was either directly delivering digital projects, running Agile process transformation projects or managing large multi-national programme deliveries.
