2008 Stockholm Scrum Gathering

Just back from Stockholm and WOW what can I say.. being my first gathering I was impressed with many things. People in the first place. People willing to work together, people ready to form functional teams right from the start. People understanding communication and collaboration. People willing to improve regardless of where they are at the moment. I know gathering "veterans" will have suggestions for improvement but I thought organization and quality of the session was just right and I managed to make tons of notes with ideas, recommendations and contacts as well!

A few good ideas, perhaps initiatives and events also emerged during the evenings even though the price of beer was a bit too high but overall Stockholm is a great place and the stay was enjoyable.

I am certainly going to review my notes, put them in order and publish all the (hopefully) useful ideas for the benefit of the community.

All that when I find enough time between my contributions to transform the way we work!

Team Dysfunctions And Scrum (2) have decided to publish my article on team dysfunctions and scrum here. I really like the edited version as it actually seems more "alive" ;)
