Debate - Scrum To Kanban

This event has already taken place. Have a look at our upcoming events to see what’s coming up.

Welcome to the next Agile Reading meetup!

Our mission is to grow the Agile community in Reading and share new trends and techniques in the Agile world.

Join us for this month’s Agile Reading meetup where we will be running our next Agile debate group. In this interactive session, attendees will form the debating teams.

The Motion is "Scrum To Kanban" - The ‘house’ believes that Agile delivery teams that experience high levels of variability (e.g. production support, stakeholder direction change) should drop their unnecessary Scrum events / roles / artifacts and adopt more Kanban practices.

We will facilitate a structured debate with pre and post-voting to see how the group is swayed by the discussion.
