Right now we have two panelists "signed-up" and we're looking for two more experienced Scrum Master to join the discussion. We may even leave one of the seats "Open" for audience members to randomly join the panel?

Maureen Green: is a Scrum Master from Deutsche Bank in Cary. She's been involved in the SM and coaching roles in agile teams for over 5 years. There's very little that Marueen hasn't least once ;-)

Tim Kuykendall:is a Scrum Master from iContact and WebAssign. He's been operating in this role for over 3 years. Tim also has a wonderful DevOps background and feel for agile leadership done well.

Beth Mullenberg:has worked for a small software company for about 13 years which has required her to wear many hats. Her official title is Operations Manager but she performs these roles as well: scrum master, project manager (PMP) and client manager.


Bob Galen: will be facilitating the panel discussion. Send your questions to Bob before the session at [masked] OR bring them the evening of.
