AgileSoCal Monthly Meeting - Wednesday, July 19th 6:00 PM

Agile, Complexity and the Cynefin Lego Game with Vic Bonacci

When: Wednesday, July 19th
Networking and food, 6:00 PM.
Activities start, 6:30 PM.

***** Always free, but YOU MUST RSVP at https://www.meetup.com/Agile-SoCal/ *****

How does complexity relate to the fitness of an agile approach? What's the difference between ordered and non-ordered domains? What the heck is this Cynefin thing & how is it pronounced?

In order to examine how Agile is a technique for addressing complexity, Vic will lead us in an investigation of the sense-making model Cynefin, while using group activities with Lego to understand the domains.

Your Presenter:

Victor 'Vic' Bonacci has been working with software teams since 1999, as a programmer, project manager, scrum master, and coach. He lives in Tustin with his wife and daughter, and enjoys our thriving, local Agile community.
