Agile Austin talk coming up this next Tuesday – July 7th

I am honored to be the speaker at AgileAustin this next Tuesday on July 7, 2009.  You can see the details of my talk here.


Speaker: Jeffrey Palermo – CTO, Headspring
Title: Being The Manager Of An Agile Team
Extreme Programming has lots to say about agile software engineering and testing.  Scrum has a lot to say about the process of iterating and organizing priority.  Lean has a lot to say about increasing production and production quality as well as eliminating waste.  Lots of client, even with agile training, still remain with questions about where management fits in within an agile culture.  This session is a blend of project management and people management.  Some of the looming questions surround:

* How to deal with risk
* Predicting issues
* Forecasting
* Hiring and firing
* No broken windows (defects)
* Feedback and metrics
* Managing scope & setting expectations
