Limited Capacity seats available

Is your user group struggling or are you trying to figure out how to even start a user group in your area? Find out how three agile user groups in Florida struggled to start and keep going and then turned things around by banding together. Within two years, we now have three thriving agile user groups that collaborate on everything from local user group development, statewide events and even launching other user groups! We’ll talk about some of the different challenges these groups faced, some of the different ways they overcame those obstacles, and how we built a state-wide learning network: AgileFlorida.com

Learning Outcomes:

  • How to avoid some common pitfalls to start and maintain a local agile user group

  • How to reach out to other user groups in your state for mutual benefit (whether they are an agile user group or not)

  • How to build a learning network that can collaborate on multiple types of agile events for mutual benefit.

  • How to share a common vision but have each user group in your learning network operate differently
