Aveiro Community Meetup #1

Agile Connect

Welcome to the Agile Community!

Here is the 1st Aveiro Community Meetup!

Pedro Torres

Scrum: From the Books to the Reality

Agile is an increasing trend. We are in a time where Agile is mentioned and pursued by the majority of the organizations (regardless of their shape or form).

Not only but also because reading the books Agile and particularly Scrum seem quite straightforward… and very easy to implement.

But how are those organizations getting along with their agility quest? Are they being successful? Or struggling with it?

In this talk I’m going to tell you what no one told you so far: “Scrum is pretty hard to implement and I’m 100% sure that you will struggle or fail on the attempt to implement it”… but not everything is lost! It doesn’t need to end like that… let me tell you more about it.

This talk will be given by Pedro Gustavo Torres, an expert in People, Technology and Product. Pedro is passionate about Agile, Scrum and all the practices that enable organizations to deliver early value to their customers, and has 10+ years of experience creating and running engineering teams in blue chip companies and also in startups.
