Enhancing Agility - It's all about getting the right sh*t done

Teams and organizations are trying every day to build the next best thing, or just keep their current products afloat.

How do we know that we are building the right thing?
Many times we don't, but if teams are delivering value consistently, the right thing seems closer to us.

What is value?
I will share some things we have to measure this, but this is something I would like to get input from others on, as it is a very hard thing to define for many organizations.

Let's get together to talk about consistently delivering value and how sometimes the process can get in the way.

We will leave time at the end to hear from others and get some conversations going


Alan Jechort

I am a highly motivated, highly skilled technology professional with over 9 years of experience in the field.

I started at Reeher as a software engineer, and am now the manager and coach of multiple teams. We have accelerated the way we incorporate Scrum into our teams and are seeing the results of how this framework works if you go about it in the right way.

I have a beautiful wife who didn't know anything about software or Scrum before we started dating. She now knows how Scrum works and has even helped me code a few web pages!

A few things I'm passionate about:

  • Do what you love to do - if you can't say you love what you do then move on to something else.
  • Happiness is a choice - choose to be happy and life will be a lot more fun.
  • Build strong relationships - people are what drives success so why not make the most out of your time with them.

I love working with technology professionals and leaders to learn from others' experiences. The most rewarding knowledge comes from collaboration and working with other people to come up with ideas and ways to make each other more successful.
