I'll be in London at the end of March. While I'm there, I'd like to have a little workshop for Scrum product owners, XP Customers, and product directors. These are the people who:
I believe those people have the hardest job on Agile projects. They are also the most likely to be isolated: programmers talk with programmers, testers talk with testers, but these people often have no peers to talk to.In this workshop, I want to gather up to 20 of these people and have them teach each other about problems they've solved. We'll use a particular format (described below) that's proven effective for such things.
The dates will be on the 29th and 30th of March (total time one and a half days). There'll be some fee to cover expenses (not exceeding £50). We'll select people on the basis of one-page statements of the problem they had and solved.
People who are programmers, testers, and project managers can also come, but product directors will have precedence.
I'm sending this note to gauge interest and decide whether to book the room (at the Royal Statistical Society, 12 Errol Street, close to the Barbican centre). Please forward it on to likely candidates.
I'll decide on March 2, based on how many product director types send me mail saying they're interested.
Questions to me: email@example.com.==========
Depending on interest, we may also have lightning talks or breakout sessions.
This format is a variant of the one used in the Los Altos Workshop on Software Testing.
