We are a user group of Scrum advocates who wish to promote the Agile and Scrum values within the community and beyond. Leveraging the knowledge of industry experts, our objective is to support people where we can. But only when they are ready to be Agile and potentially use Scrum.
We do what we say by living the Scrum Values:
We focus on one presentation per event (but it can be presented by multiple people). This allows the presenter(s) and audience to gain the maximum value from the event.
We organise as a team and welcome people to contribute so, they too can gain experience of volunteering for the community. We believe there is no monopoly on experience.
We are a free, open group that tries to resolve any concerns and is as transparent as we possibly can be.
We are committed to the success of Agile and Scrum by supporting the community with this user group.
We respect everyone inside the group and also outside the group. We have no desire to compete, but rather to share knowledge even if it could be seen as being at the expense of our group. We do not judge and we wish all to be respected even if others may deem they are not worthy of that respect.
For that, we will always support diversity in our community and we will start doing that by promoting female speakers for the first 12 months to show who they are and what they have to offer!
