Description of the evening

We are going to work together to build ships. Due to great marketing we have a *stack* of orders. 

We will train you up to work on our production line, and then we’ll start work to make lots of money. 

Potential discussion points: 

  • Flow of work - a flow system 
  • Push vs pull
  • Different queuing disciplines 
  • Stable vs unstable system 
  • Effort in both cases 
  • Throughput in both cases
  • Value delivered 
  • Lead time 
  • Littles law

Katy Chandler-Grant is an Agile Delivery Lead/Coach - Contractor

Steven Mackenzie works in Basingstoke as a Scrum Master for NewVoiceMedia

The session start off at 6:30pm

Refreshments and venue kindly provided by the Ordnance Survey

This presentation is particularly designed for those with experience of using Agile methods

The Agile South Coast Group meets monthly, every second Tuesday of the month, to discuss topics about the whole Agile Experience within local technical organisations and people in the Southampton / Hampshire area.

They use differing Agile techniques to explore the space, and their aim is to spread the best practices and avoid the pitfalls of applying Agile methodologies within our professional lives.
