Program Description: 

Use your agile skills to grow your career, increase your income and influence as an agile professional. Master agile principles for your own career success.

This is a workshop; it's experiential, not a lecture. The goal is to expose you to new ideas and challenges. Instead of throwing a ton of content at you, it's built around experience. You and your fellow participants will engage in mini-projects that will transform the way you look at your work and career.

This isn't for everyone. If you're not comfortable sharing your experiences, challenging yourself to think differently, or debate ideas deeply--then this is probably not a workshop for you. It won't be easy necessarily--you'll have to put in a ton of work--but it can be transformative.

What you will learn:
>>Gain perspective into the agile ecosystem of today and how it's evolving
>>Insights from my research study about the Future of the Scrum Master role
>>Identify the inflection points in your career growth
>>Feedback of your fellow workshop participants will shape your views
>>Learn to make commitments and take action--right in the workshop
>>How to build your own board of advisors
>>Map out a three-year career roadmap in the agile space

Who should attend:
This workshop is for the agile professionals, experienced in the agile ecosystem, specifically Scrum Masters, Product Owners, Developers, Business Analyst, QA Leads. You are either looking to grow into a Scrum Master role, or grow out of it. Participants are encouraged to have at least 2 years of hands-on experience with agile teams.

Get your laptops or cellphones to the workshop, as you will be conducting online research for some projects. 

We hope you will join us.

Special Instructions: 

Time: 7:30am - 4:30pm CT
Continental Breakfast and a box lunch will be provided. Networking opportunity is available immediately after the workshop.
