Lean Coffee @ Agile Ottawa

Last night I facilitated our first Lean Coffee meetup at Agile Ottawa. Thanks again to all who made it out, and to You.i TV for the venue, food & drinks!🙂

We covered a lot of interesting topics:

  • How to sell executive sponsors on addressing technical debt?
  • How to transition slow adopters from waterfall to agile when others have moved on?
  • Wardley Maps – how they can be used to decide when to do Agile.
  • How to estimate user stories?
  • How to engage an overloaded Product Owner more with the team?
  • Adopting [agile] with non-agile clients.
  • Scrum & Continuous Delivery – are they compatible?

See the pictures below for key points covered.

We also had some great feedback on the session:

  • Interesting discussions (x6!)
  • Loved it, do it again (x4!)
  • Well moderated (aside: thanks!🙂 )
  • Got a lot of good ideas

I’m already looking forward to our next Lean Coffee🙂

Here are the pictures I took of our whiteboard:
