Hey, CMMI Appraiser – I am an engineering executive and member of DC-SPIN, and I just wanted to say, I got a lot out of attending your CMMI+Scrum presentation last month. We are a Virginia-based engineering firm with a branch office doing Scrum projects in Philadelphia, and I feel that our whole company needs to understand that CMMI and Scrum are at their most powerful when they are used together. Will you be presenting in Philly any time soon? ~ Dalia H.
Hey, Dalia – great to hear from you. It’s always a pleasure to have such thoughtful participants at my CMMI+Scrum presentations, and I’m glad you found it so useful. That’s our goal: for engineering and software executives as well as project managers and developers to learn something about the CMMI and Scrum that they can take back to their companies and put immediately to use.
It just so happens that I will be ringing the bell in Philadelphia this Tuesday night! On second thought … I will give my CMMI+Scrum presentation tonight, but maybe I’d better not ring the bell.
CMMI+Scrum: Power Partners in Product Development" for the Philadelphia Software Process Improvement Network (Philly SPIN).
Like the presentation you attended, tonight’s talk is designed to give engineering and software organizations new insights into addressing persistent problems, and to show them how to use CMMI and Scrum to improve upon what they are ALREADY doing. The program will focus on providing data, experiences, and lessons learned. As a certified ScrumMaster, I have a lot of real-life stories to share.
As you may know, we’ve been doing this presentation for several months now. After tonight, we’ll be taking our show back to the Midwest, talking to engineering and software companies in Detroit, followed by a jaunt to Madrid, Spain. It’s pretty cool how folks all over the world are learning how CMMI and Scrum can partner up to solve business problems and drive high performance engineering. Don’t you agree?
For your colleagues in Philadelphia, be sure to send them to the link to register: http://spin.asqphilly.org/nextmeeting.html
I hope to see them there tonight. I may even have something for them to win!
