    Join Scrum community members from around the world as they gather together in England for Scrum Alliance Global Gathering: London. You'll find plenty of ways to participate as you share experiences, exchange information, and collaborate with fellow Scrum users. Get value and expert insight that provides you with a framework for evaluating and incorporating Scrum while you learn from experienced practitioners and leaders in the Agile community.

    Hello to all my fellow Scrummers out there!

    My name is Nigel Baker, and I am the volunteer program chair for the Scrum Alliance Global Gathering: London on the 11th-13th of October.

    I'll just tell you all a little bit about myself. (I find biographies so boring myself, so I don't want to torture you with my life history!) I am an Agile Coach working for my own company, AgileBear Ltd. I am a Certified Scrum Trainer, working across the world doing Agile with a variety of companies. I have been involved with Scrum since about 2004, and I've helped the Scrum Alliance with a variety of things in the past (on program committees for previous gatherings, Scrum Trainer Review committees and a variety of behind the scenes stuff.) I have also been quite involved in the UK Scrum scene such as the local User Groups in Bristol, Bath and London - which I am hoping the Gathering will help invigorate with lots of new members!

    When I was asked to take this role on, I was instantly excited with the idea and I knew I had to get a vision together for what we wanted to achieve, to help us align, focus and have a purpose behind this event. Why should we come together? Why should people pay to attend? What should the vision be? I sat looking at the Scrum Alliance website, willing inspiration. And there it was, right in front of me. On the top of the screen, staring down.

    "Transforming the world of work."

    I was inspired, and I quickly constructed a Product Box.

    As we can see, the three main features of this Gathering are:

    Industry Experts bringing the "cutting edge": New ideas, thoughts, methods, tricks. Let’s get those big brains along and get them sharing knowledge!

    Eight Focused Streams of Value: Focusing each room at the Gathering as a theme, as a stream of ideas. Bringing a purpose to each room and allowing us to focus our intentions.

    Sharing, Speaking and Learning for ALL. This won't be purely for any one community and it won't just be people speaking at you. The idea of the gathering is this is about community driven learning and content, so we'll reserve an entire day to generate content, ideas, thoughts and workshops to improve what we do. Come to our "Scrum 101" session. Are you "post-Agile" or "beyond Scrum"? Come discuss with the Scrum Alliance community and see if we can draw on each other's experiences.

    These three major features come together to help us achieve the Scrum Gatherings (and the Scrum Alliance's) motto: Transforming the World of Work.

    This Gathering is around TRANSFORMATION. There is an entire stream of content on Change. The act and form of organizational and personal change. There is a stream on how the Scrum Alliance is helping you do this.

    This Gathering is around THE WORLD. We are bringing speakers from outside Scrum to share their thinking on a variety of human-based and organization-based thinking to help us use Scrum effectively and transform. The reason for this Gathering being based in the major travel hub of the world is for the world to come together and share. There will be an entire day dedicated to the community. Via Open Space and Lightning Talks, we will harness the power of the community to solve major questions, share experience and advice, and collectively move the world of product development forward one more step.

    This Gathering is around WORK - And how to make it feel like play. Looking at the jobs in Scrum, the framework, what behaviors and tools we can use within Scrum, we will help people harness their own talents and be the best they can be. Not try to make them supermen, but giving them the best opportunities to succeed.

    "So why tell you all this? Because I'd love you to come! This is going to be a fantastic event, with all the Scrum "names" from across Europe and lots of new voices sharing great thinking. It's going to be about all of us, running a variety of workshops, games, seminars and discussions on transforming the world of work with Scrum. And it's all going to be taking place in central London, opposite Big Ben itself!

    I'm gonna be there - I can't wait to see you too!"

    Best,

    Nigel

    Keynote James Grenning

    The first two days of the Gathering are organized into themes, or as we’re calling them, Streams. We’ve listed them below so you can get an idea of what our gathering programme will give you:

    1.    Product Owner

    2.     ScrumMaster and Coaching

    3.     Change and Transformation

    4.     Sprint Internals – “ScrumAnd”

    5.     Scrum

    6.     Scrum Clinic

    7.     War Stories

    8.     None of the Above – The Bonus Stream!

    Product Owner: A Stream on the Job of the Product Owner. How they work, How they connect with the business, what do they do. New tips and tricks, Agile Portfolio Management, Contacting and launching projects and products, Tales of the PO. Case Studies.

    ScrumMaster and Coaching: This is about Coaching. Both from an Agile Coach point of view and especially form the point of view of the ScrumMaster. Hints, tips, tricks, coaching methods. How does the SM fit into the wider Organisation? Who makes a good ScrumMaster? Is it a role or a job? How do I coach self-organised teams? Using lateral thinking to innovate, personality types, Servant Leadership and Facilitation.

    Change and Transformation: Organisational change is a big part of Agilification and is often where Agile goes wrong. 70% of Change projects fail and Agile is a change. A BIG change, What can we do to help assist that move? Techniques, ideas, problems and health warnings, Cynefin and stories. 

    Sprint Internals and ScrumAnd: Scrum is not enough. It doesn’t tell you how to code. Or test. Or cook apple pie. But all are important. (Especially apple pie!) This stream is about “everything else.” What do you do inside a sprint that makes Scrum work? What do you do outside of Scrum to help build great Products?  ScrumAnd… Engineering skills? BDD? Crucial conversations? Whatever it is, it will fall under this stream.

    Scrum – A stream about Scrum itself. Ideas, thoughts, learning and how to use Scrum effectively in the 21st century. Scrum for beginners, How to use a daily scrum to identify impediments. How can we scale? And most importanty, why do we do it!

    Scrum Clinic - This is the famous Scrum Doctor’s surgery for your Scrum aches and pains, coached by a collection of Certified Scrum Coaches and Trainers. There will also be panels/workshops on Scrum transitions and typical Scrum practitioner problems, if you have a particular Scrum problem. 1-2-1, group therapy, it's all available for you here.

    War Stories - A new stream! This is for people to share their experiences in implementing Agile in their organisations and teams. Electronic Arts, Ericsson, Education, eBay will all be sharing their personal stories about "the war". :-)

    None of the Above – The Bonus Stream: Outside Agile? Outside the Box? This is this stream! Surviving a zombie apocalypse as a team dynamic demonstration? That's in this stream! A grand experiment on introducing Scrum, maverick management, learning through failing - This is a stream to generate lateral thinking. A stream of genuinely outside the box content. The aim of this stream is FUN.

    Start planning your trip to London right now. We've chosen Park Plaza Riverbank in central London to host the Gathering. It sits alongside the River Thames with nearby access to Big Ben, the Tate Britain art museum, and the London Eye luxury cruiser.

    Add some extra days to your trip and make time to visit some of the sites and attractions that make London one of the world's premier tourist destinations. Get up close and personal with wax replicas of famous people at Madame Tussauds -- snap your picture standing next to William Shakespeare, David Beckham, or Her Majesty the Queen.

    Speaking of royalty, Buckingham Palace is a must-see, as is the Changing the Guard ceremony outside the castle doors. If your schedule permits, Diana, Princess of Wales' official London home Kensington Palace, and King Henry VIII's royal abode, Hampton Court Palace, are also open to the public.

    Indulge your eccentric side with a visit to some of London's quirkier attractions, like the Cartoon Museum, an old operating room housed inside a church, or a museum devoted entirely to fans. London is also brimming with wonderful restaurants, loads of shops, and miles of public parks and gardens.

    London's average high temperature in October hovers in the 60s, but bring your galoshes because October also has the highest rainfall of the year.

    Hei Nigel, in order to be able to apply for the gathering - according to our company policy - I need to provide some more info like cost (gathering), opening for registration and its deadline. Please can you give me this information?

    Regards,

    Pier Lorenzo
    Nigel Baker, CST,CSP,CSM,CSPO, 6/23/2011 2:33:14 AM
    Hi Pier, This information will be coming out soon.
    Mike Dwyer, CST,CSP,CSM,CSPO, 6/28/2011 5:58:01 PM
    When will there be a call for papers?
    Mat Walker, CSM, 7/1/2011 9:42:59 AM
    Hi Nigel, Are you looking for volunteers to help with the gathering?
    Nigel Baker, CST,CSP,CSM,CSPO, 7/4/2011 7:05:55 AM
    Call for presentations open! See the "Event" tab for details.

    Mat, there may well be a need for volunteer help on the day. As we get closer, we will be reaching out. Thanks!

    Brad Legge, CSM, 7/14/2011 9:32:23 AM
    Hi Nigel - when will there be more detail around the Program, speakers, breakout sessions and themes being covered? This is quite important in order for our company to justify the cost before we make a commitment. Thanks Brad
    Dinesh Sharma, CSP,CSM,CSPO, 7/27/2011 2:09:05 AM
    Nigel,
    What's the cost for attending the gathering for people don't want to use Hotel accommodation?
    Nigel Baker, CST,CSP,CSM,CSPO, 7/28/2011 10:23:46 AM
    Hi Brad, the programme will launch early August. We are closing the submission system now, and will be selecting a programme soon.

    The streams should give a strong indication of content, the keynotes will be published ASAP, but the main value will be the programme we will put together. We will have many of the major EU Scrum figures attending and generating content.

    DInesh, the attendance cost should be on the main tab. We seriously recommend using the hotel accommodation as the post conference ad hoc sessions will add serious value.
    Donald Ewart, CSP,CSM, 8/17/2011 5:23:19 AM
    Nigel,

    I want to ask two of the same questions, since it has been one month previous when they were first asked:

    What is the cost of the conference? - not the hotel. I live in London, so dont need a room. I need this to decide if I attend.

    What is the information on the speakers, content etc of the conference? again needed to justify attendance.

    thanks,

    Donald Ewart
    Nigel Baker, CST,CSP,CSM,CSPO, 8/19/2011 11:22:34 AM
    Hi Donald, the pricing is on the "details" tab - the speakers are selected and being uploaded this week. For a sneak peek (Shhh! Dont tell anyone!) Keynotes include Stephen Denning and Joe Justice. Programme speakers include Tobias Mayer, Liz Keogh, Roman Pichler, Joseph Pelrine, Geoff Watts, speakers from Electronic Arts, eBay, Ericsson and Rachel Davies will be facilitating day three's Open Space and attendee driven programme. We have speakers from around the world, sponsored evening events and a range of subject streams on Scrum, Change, Product Owner, ScrumAnd, Coaching, Scrum Clinic and a Bonus stream where (for example) we'll use 'Left for Dead' to see if surviving the zombie apocolypse will teach team dynamics! I hope that clarifies a little?
    Dinesh Sharma, CSP,CSM,CSPO, 8/19/2011 12:49:02 PM
    Ok. Looks like people are confused bit with price Whether price on the tab includes hotel or not. To clarify it doesn't so if you want to book the hotel you will have have to book separately. I hope it clarifies the pricing.
    Paul Barrett, CSM, 8/29/2011 11:25:35 AM
    Nigel, looking throught the programme I see a number of streams that would be of interest to me and my company, but the length of each session is not given. For instance, on 11/10/11, there are eight sessions between 11 and 12:30. Do they all run concurrently? If not, please can the programme be updated with timings for each session so attendees can plan their days accordingly.
    Sabine Canditt, CST,CSC,CSP,CSM,CSPO, 8/30/2011 3:28:24 AM
    Hi,

    will there be a CST/CSC meeting?

    Kind regards
    Sabine
    Nigel Baker, CST,CSP,CSM,CSPO, 8/30/2011 7:24:27 AM
    Hi Paul, Each session will be 90 minutes long. The Streams run concurrently. There are eight conference rooms at the Hotel that we will be filling with high quality content across the three days. I know there will be many sessions that people are interested in, that alas clash on the timetable - So we have used some good Agile techniques and prioritised the sessions that the committee thought would be higher value, in a way so they can all be attended. If there are still further clashes, I often arrange with a "Gathering Buddy" to attend different sessions and also debrief afterwards. :-) When I worked for a large enterprise, we sent multiple colleagues to ensure we covered all the material possible.

    Sabine, the CST/CSC retreat will be Monday at the same location.
    Paul Heidema, CSP,CSM,CSPO, 9/6/2011 8:29:58 AM
    Hello...
    If the CST/CSC retreat is on Monday, does that mean that the Panel for CST applicants is on Sunday? Thanks, Paul
    Richard Birch, CSP,CSM, 9/16/2011 3:15:00 AM
    Hi - really looking forward to the event, as I'll be representing interests of teams from IT, engineering (not software) and also keen to gain some insight into the broader organisational change piece and upstream 'business analysis' and the way work is prepared - so lots of angles of interest. It'd be really helpful to complete the 'speakers' section with profiles of all the speakers and their subject matter, to help decide which sessions to go to. Do we need to choose in advance or can we go with the flow?
    Thanks
    Rich
    Nigel Baker, CST,CSP,CSM,CSPO, 9/20/2011 11:12:49 AM
    Hi Paul - If you contact Tonya, she will be able to tell you the CST applicant review day. (I believe it's Saturday but don't hold me to that)

    Rich, the speakers should now be updated. You don't need to choose what you attend till the second before the speaker starts - And you can change mid presentation if you like. We like to embrace change. :-)
    Richard Birch, CSP,CSM, 10/14/2011 3:46:16 AM
    Super event - my mind feels slightly fuzzy now as there's lots of ideas and energy in there needing to get out and tranform my work place!
    Thanks to you Nigel, and all the team in putting on the event.
    Rich
    Sam Garnham, 10/14/2011 9:34:20 AM
    When/where will slides be available from the sessions?
    Pier Lorenzo Paracchini, CSM, 10/17/2011 2:51:40 AM
    Hi wonderful event :) - you all made a fantastic job.

    When and where will be possible to find the presentations of the different sessions?

    Regards,

    Pier Lorenzo
    David Sutton, CSM, 10/17/2011 4:12:05 AM
    Great event. Am also looking for the presentations. Is there an ETA?
    Erri Javola, CSM,CSPO, 10/17/2011 4:56:58 AM
    Absolutely great event. Thanks to the Nigel and the team for arranging susch a great gathering :-) The program was very interesting and like the others I'm now eager to get access to the presentations.
