• What we'll do
This time for the meetup we have a super senior Agile expert from Australia, Antony Marsh!
"Agile" is now probably the dominant approach to process and process improvement in software development and IT circles. Increasingly though, organisations are seeing that Agile might be applicable to other business functions and contexts - these include for example Human Resources, Marketing, and Sales. This talk will discuss some of the techniques being tried in non-software/non-tech contexts (Scrum/Kanban/Scrumban/Tribes and Squads) and draw on Antony's experiences - both good and bad! - as a scrum master and agile coach working in the marketing department of one of Australia's largest banks.
Bio: Antony comes from a project management/business management background and worked on a World Bank project with the Indonesian government in Jakarta in[masked]. He started working Agile in 2008 while managing a web development team at Victoria University - his developers forced him to go Agile! Since then, he's worked as a business analyst, scrum master and more recently an agile coach in the medical, education, life insurance, energy and finance/banking sectors. Antony is an "Agnostic Agilist" - he believes there is no "one right way" to be agile, and as practitioners we can draw from Scrum, Lean, Kanban, SAFe etc as appropriate according to the context and needs of the business.
