[Micronet] AGILE BROWN BAG: Building Success from Failure (And Success) : Monday, December 1 from Noon to 1:30: 200C Warren Hall

Judy Dobry-2

Tired of all the finger pointing when something goes wrong?  Want to move to something more constructive?

Want to capture what goes right on your projects so you can bottle the magic and use it again?

If so, the next Agile Brown Bag is for you.  At our meeting, Donna Seaward (Haas) and Ken Sumikawa (SAIT) show us how to use an Agile technique called retrospectives.  This powerful tool helps teams move from fearing failure to creating success out of failure and from just celebrating success to using success as rocket fuel for future success.

Retrospectives certainly helped the team that has been working diligently on our Web site, agile.berkeley.edu.  Our December 1 meeting will mark the official roll out of the site so come learn what it can do for you.

Time:  Monday, December 1, 2014 from Noon to 1:30
Place:  200C Warren Hall

See you there,

Judy (on behalf of the Agile Organizing Committee)
