Welcome back to Southern Connecticut Agile! For our November meetup, Esther Derby and Matthew Carlson presented There Are No More Early Adopters of Agile.

About the presentation:

After 20 years, Agile has in a sense become pervasive. While it’s neither mandated nor regulated, everyone’s heard of it, and lots of organizations understand the legitimacy it confers. Still, some folks continue to approach changing to Agile as though it were a brand new set of ideas. How’s that working out? Join Esther and Matthew in a conversation about what motivated early Agile adopters, what’s different now, and how we can more effectively bring about the changes we seek.

Comments from participants include “One of the best online sessions I have participated in at least this whole year” and “Best talk of any sort I’ve been to (online or otherwise) in a very long time.”

Work with Amitai in 2022

Unique opportunity to be in the presence of someone who will make you a better, smarter version of you.
Kent Beck, Agile Manifesto coauthor

Would your team, department, or organization benefit from a rare combination of technical coaching and influential conversations?

Amitai has the gift of bringing new techniques and perspectives to a large group of people without pushing or putting people on the spot. He is a great facilitator and coach, and offers his experiences without being overbearing.
Alex Schladebeck, Chief Executive Officer, BREDEX GmbH

Would you personally benefit from individualized sessions with an experienced, inquisitive, and empathetic conversation partner?

He created a safe space, in which I was able to sort through unstructured thoughts and come out with much more clarity on the other side.
Niklas Lochschmidt, Tech Lead, BRYTER GmbH

Maybe you’re facing a learning opportunity in some code, another kind of challenging situation at work — or both.

Whenever I pair with him I immediately feel calm and grounded.
Andrea Goulet, Chief Executive Officer, Corgibytes LLC

Let’s find out whether I might be useful to you.

If you were to invite Amitai to come help you, I am confident you’d receive excellent help for your money.
