The 2019 edition of Scrum Day India is happening on Saturday 20 July 2019, in Gurgaon (Delhi NCR).
Sanjay Saini, owner of Agile WOW("Agile Ways of Working"), kindly invited me, as an independent Scrum Caretaker, to open and close the event. I hope many Scrum practitioners register at scrumdayindia.org and join the event. In the end, only eager attendants can turn events into insightful experiences!
Sanjay and I agreed on the theme for the 2019 edition of Scrum Day India to be "Beyond Deceptive Agility".
Many organizations embark on an Agile journey, a journey to increase their agility. We find that the result is often quite deceptive, in terms of business outcomes as well as to the teams, leaders and user bases of these organizations. As we inspect to adapt in Scrum, we want to explicitly move beyond merely detecting this unfortunate situation. We hope to share some insights and stories about moving beyond deceptive agility.
As a personal note I want to add that I am not just excited for visiting India for the first time ever. I see my visit as a way to express my support not only to the Scrum practitioners in India, but also to local experts. Beyond helping organizations in their adoption of Scrum, Sanjay is a Professional Scrum Trainer, licensed by Scrum.org to teach Professional Scrum classes.
