    April PMI Agile Round Table

    The Standard

    The PMI Agile Roundtable provides a forum for exchanging ideas, techniques and real world experiences (good and bad) in managing agile projects. Although sponsored by PMI, all roles and backgrounds are welcome and encouraged to participate / debate. We value the variety of perspectives and levels of experience with agile.

    This Month we're honored to have Daniel Lynn present: Technical Consulting

    Summary: What Is Technical Coaching?

    All the best athletes teams have coaches. Musicians and singer? They have coaches too. If you’re a top-level executive at a Fortune 500 company, chances are you have a coach too. So what about the people building your products? Should they have coaches?

    Coaching has really taken off over the past decade, but somehow our teams - the people who make the products that our companies live or die by - they’ve been left behind. In this talk we’ll discuss the what a technical coach does (and doesn’t do) and how to tell if your team could benefit from one.

    About Daniel:

    Daniel has been developing software for nearly two decades and has been working in agile teams for the last 10 years. More recently, he has worked with agile42 coaching teams on the adoption of agile practices both in code and across the organization, but his passion is still in writing great software and helping others do the same.

It is especially useful for those project managers accustomed to a more traditional environment to adapt to a more agile approach."

    December PMI Agile Round Table

    The Standard

    The PMI Agile Roundtable provides a forum for exchanging ideas, techniques and real world experiences (good and bad) in managing agile projects. Although sponsored by PMI, all roles and backgrounds are welcome and encouraged to participate / debate. We value the variety of perspectives and levels of experience with agile.

    This Month we'll continue on the topic of Servant Leadership: A Grounding Discussion with Jean Richardson (and possibly discuss other leadership models). Summary: For agilists, servant leadership has long been the go-to leadership model. Most agilists aren’t grounded in what servant leadership really is.

    As requested by the attendees, this discussion will continue last month's topic - introduce you to the founder, his initial conceptual overview of servant leadership, modern thought leaders, and common critiques of the model. You will leave with an easy way to determine whether you really are a successful servant leader.


    Jean Richardson led the webinar “Intro to Servant Leadership for the Flummoxed” last month. She will set the context for a discussion on this leadership model and encourage discussion among the attendees. Jean is the author of The Preservation of the Agile Heart, an advanced discussion of agile advocacy and where agile advocates need to go from here. Learn more at agileheartinfo.com.

    We will meet at:

    Good Data, Bad Info @DAMA PDX - November 16

    The Standard

    Join your fellow Portland area Lovers of Data for breakfast, networking, and a data talk by Michael Scofield from Loma Linda University; hosted by your local Portland DAMA chapter. We meet at in Downtown Portland at 8:30am for registration and networking with the presentation from 9 to 11:30am.

    RSVP Required. More Information and RSVP at: https://damapdx.wordpress.com/2017/10/05/november-2017-good-data-bad-info/

    Free for members and employees of corporate members.
    Students only $5 (to cover breakfast and speaker travel).

    About "Good Data, Bad Info"

    Producing decision-able information from lots of raw data often requires complex processes which must be carefully designed and architected.

    Mind the Gap: This presentation looks at the gap between raw data and decision-able information. Most of the chatter about data quality focuses upon raw, granular data describing discrete events and entities inside the enterprise and around it. But for data warehouses and decision-support, data must be converted into useful information meaningful to the decision-maker.

    Raw or Derived? Trend and Pattern Examples: We will also examine numerous examples between raw data and derived data (“information”) which show us trends, patterns, etc. Examples come from astronomy, military intelligence, and criminology. For example, in image analysis (in the intelligence community) we see a succession of “derived” data as we move from pixels to clues about the enemy’s strategic intent.

    The 9 MetaData Types - Which and Why: As an enterprise is inundated with more data (raw, intermediate, and advanced information) the designing and population of good metadata becomes even more important. We will look at nine distinct kinds of metadata. Not all kinds are of equal importance, but we will show the value of each. The larger the organization, and the more diverse the “institutional memory”, the more important it is to properly document the data asset for broader exploitation of its value.

    Correct Conclusions? Handle with Care: We will also look at how incorrect conclusions may be drawn because of mishandling of the process to derive “higher level” information from the raw data.
