I know this is short notice but we have to jump on the opportunity of having
Esther Derby and Diana Larsen in the Philadelphia area this week!
Esther Derby and Diana Larsen co-authored the classic book on Agile Retrospectives: Making Good Teams Great
The topic for this session is still in the making. Of course there will be some retrospective content but Diana and Esther might want to cover some hot topics (your questions?) about Agile Alliance and/or humans & software project.
Whatever the topic is, you don't want to miss out on the opportunity to see these 2 great speakers.
Thanks to ClickEquations for sponsoring the food and to Siemens for hosting!
