Welcome to the Phoenix Scrum User Group!
Hello everyone!!!! It's great to get going again. Like everyone on the planet, we've had to make some adjustments in how we operate. YES, we are going remote, at least for the short term. There are actually some big advantages to online. We also have some ideas to keep people connected, and we'll be putting those in place. Finally, we're definitely open to new ideas and new approaches, so please contact us if you have any thoughts or would like to get involved.
Get invited to all our meetings as soon as they're scheduled. We'll keep you in the loop with ALL the news!

Description: Cultivating Culture in a New Development Team
In this discussion, we will look at some of the lessons learned while growing an agile development organization from 6 people to 26 people in less than one year. As a group, we’ll discuss what types of behaviors are desirable, why they are desirable, and ways to get those behaviors. You will leave with ideas and techniques for encouraging behaviors which are in line with company and agile cultures and how to discourage other behaviors.

Design Studios: Unleashing Your Teams Creative Potential!
The early stages of product discovery and development can crucially influence the success and direction of any product. Yet these stages tend to be fuzzy, highly politicized, and under-documented. Design studios address this challenge by bringing the team together and allow ideas from various perspectives and insights to percolate within the team.
Design Studio methodology provides a collaborative, pragmatic process of illumination, sketching, presentation, critique, and iteration, leading to a shared vision and hopefully a more coherent and elegant solution.
This highly interactive session will showcase how teams can use Design Studio technique to explore opportunities and innovate products to better serve customer’s needs.
