In this one hour workshop you will receive an overview of what SCRUM is and how it can radically improve the management and success of projects in both small to large organisations.
Scrum is an agile way to manage a project, usually software development. Agile software development with Scrum is often perceived as a methodology; but rather than viewing Scrum as methodology, think of it as a framework for managing a process.
This workshop is developed for any professional who has an interest in Agile projects.
This includes business customers, users or partners, product owners and team members.
Professionals interested in moving to Agile, including: project managers, project leads, project sponsors, IT manager/directors business analysts and developers/programmers would also benefit from this crash course in Agile.
Steve Glaveski is a certified Agile practitioner and spent time working at both Macquarie Bank and Ernst & Young, where he consulted for numerous ASX50 and NASDAQ listed clients, before embarking upon his own entrepreneurial journey. He used lean startup principles to validate assumptions underlying his first startup, Hotdesk, which lead to a successful fundraising round, before growing the office sharing platform to almost 1,000 locations across AsiaPac.
He has since gone on to advise other early stage tech-startups and is a co-founder of Collective Campus, sighting an archaic mentality of "the way things have always been done around here" as a key motivator for wanting to get into the space. Steve is also a regular innovation blogger, having written for Venture Beat, Startup Daily and Shareable in addition to independent publishing on LinkedIn.
When not immersing himself in all things business and innovation, Steve can be found hitting weights in the gym, cycling down Beach Road, catching a live band on AC/DC Lane or enjoying some smashed avocado on toast at one of Melbourne's many famous inner city cafes.
