  • Episode #38 – Communities in Scrum with Perry Reinert - Integrum
    that application we have a web form up that collects people that are interested They give us their name and address goes right into the database and then they re automatically sent the updates every month about who s talking and what the topic is For me to manage that is just incredibly it s like an hour a month now Once that was setup the form on the website to capture name and email goes right into the database and the emails go out automatically Then we also advertise we have Yahoo Groups and LinkedIn We do some other postings as well In terms of the actual amount of work during the month if we all get together then that s an hour or so of generally pretty fun discussion about what to do and we always get on some sort of Agile topic talking also Then there s the meeting which is we run them six to about eight once a month Chris When a lot of people are trying to get user groups up and running one of the questions that comes up a lot of times is content How are you going to get speakers How are you going to get somebody to get up in front and present Are there any tips or tricks that you have for maybe four or five guys who are getting together and trying to start a group Perry Yeah First of all usually those four or five guys are good for one or two talks each Get one to kick things off What we were actually able to do and if you are a new group starting out you ll probably have a good chance at doing this We actually were lucky enough to get Ken Schwaber to come and give I shouldn t say come he gave the first talk That was actually a challenging talk He did it remotely and in the end for that one we ended up holding a cell phone to a microphone to handle the audio So I don t recommend doing a remote talk Derek A very tight inspected app loop laughter Perry Yes That s exactly what it was It s great If you can do that and kick it off with a big name like that that s great We had 80 or 100 people at our first meeting That really helps get the word out and then market it Our email list now because we have that web form I get five people every month that just sign up That s been going on for over a year Plus we started with a bunch I think our list is 5 600 people now that get the emails that say Somebody s come here s the talk Derek Another thing that we ve started to do that helps a little bit too is we ve tried to make relationships with the CSTs that are teaching in the area Whereby we

  • Episode #01 - Single Retrospective w/ Multiple Teams - Integrum
    really played with it one time maybe doing two weeks where we do retrospectives as an entire unit Intermix the teams mix the teams up and try to get some honest courage Hit those well as common denominator problems and really pick up our engineering practices to pick up our scrum practices and XP practices Then maybe every third week try to do a retrospective that kind of highlights each team as an individual team as part of the exercise even though it was facilitated all at one time The problem is that it becomes fairly difficult to find exercises that work that only have two people providing the input to those data Maybe the right answer is we do do something like that but instead of being a data gathering retrospective maybe we take some of the data that has been gathered as part of retrospectives over the two previous weeks plus data that we ve seen or harvested or discussed not during retrospectives and bring that in and then try to facilitate those one on one with each team for a part of the retrospective and have it be a little more pointed Of course the difficulty is some of these start up projects that we deal with only run four to eight weeks If you re only doing that every third week or every fourth week you re half way through a project before you re potentially dealing with issues that could dramatically improve either the quality of work or the pace or any number of things revolving around the project Chris Again it seems like we re having some difficulties mapping best practices in our job because we are a very traditional consulting shop in a way We want to do short term projects We want to try to get as close as we can to fix bids so that we can bring people in and that does make it difficult Having two people teams if we had something in turnoff we were a product company or something like that then we would have some time to work these things overtime to kind of let things play themselves out Derek I think that one of the beauties of doing pairs and then doing either one pair of pairs or two pairs of pairs and kind of capping it to no more than four people per project actually makes this extremely agile and extremely nimble in bringing on new customers and even existing customers pick projects that allows us to be really nimble in how we use people and use resources on the team to solve problems but it almost allows us to go so fast that it s hard to have some of the structure that is required in scrum to do the continuous improvement Just like if you doubled your velocity you might drop testing or might drop other good engineering practices I think in some ways by having these very small nimble agile teams

  • So...you'd like to work for Integrum? - Integrum
    what that means you expect applicants to do at that stage http drp ly 1cO2f6 Finally in both Safari 5 and Chrome on OS X the text entry area I m typing in at this moment is wider than the content and this is causing the actual content of the post to be hidden under the overflow on the right and left as I type http drp ly 1cO4at Reply Someone Working says June 16 2010 at 8 09 pm You realize that you are stopping anyone currently employed from applying right Reply Jade Meskill says June 16 2010 at 8 14 pm Then they sure aren t thinking hard or creatively enough Reply Mark Dudlik says June 30 2010 at 10 51 pm I kind of feel like doing this just for the hell of it Reply victor says July 1 2010 at 12 13 am well they might get creative but github s TOS forbids anyone from creating more than one free account Also how are you going to prevent cheating I could look at someone else s fork and be inspired by it Reply Chris Conrey says July 2 2010 at 10 30 am If a person is so inspired odds are they won t take the time to cheat here Reply Gerhard says July 1 2010 at 2 44 am This is awesome guys I wish more employers would do this Good luck with finding the right person Reply Álvaro Justen Turicas says July 1 2010 at 5 37 am It is an effective way since you ll eliminate guys that don t know want how to learn clone push etc by himselves and you can see something about the candidate the code Very nice way to hire people Congratulations Reply Robert K says July 1 2010 at 6 12 am Interesting approach to finding job candidates Please do a followup post in say 6 12 months to let us know how well or not this works I m sure you ll get some good buzz but will it generate a good stream of qualified job candidates I m skeptical There is an assumption possibly even arrogance that candidates are strongly motivated to jump through these hoops for you Given that you re also requiring people to relocate or already live in the Phoenix area you ve set up two pretty strict filters for your candidate pipeline my current boss No I m not looking for a job elliotcable You do realize that the over wide textarea is just another filter right If you don t know how to use WebInspector Firebug to resize the textarea than surely you can t have anything important to say Reply Chris Conrey says July 1 2010 at 3 19 pm Robert great points but the filters are there for the reasons you mention Our team culture is important to us and having a co located team is one factor of that We have had a couple of candidates already
