Our community is growing

Last year Xpertise Recruitment helped organise and sponsor 201 Tech community MeetUp events. Our meetup events are designed to be a learning platform to upskill the community, alongside being a networking opportunity for individuals who want to create a community outside of work; to bounce ideas, talk about the challenges they are facing, make friends and much more. It is a place where the tech community can come to listen, learn, explore and connect. These events take place every month and bring some of the industry’s leading experts to the meetups to talk about their experience.

Agile West Midlands

Location: STEAMHouse, Belmont Row, Birmingham B4 7RQ
Start Time:06:30 PM
Topic: Kanban - Beyond the Board

Agile West Mids is back at the new home of the STEAMHouse powered by Birmingham City University, sponsored by Xpertise Recruitment!

We have 2 speakers over the evening, the first is Igor Stimoli from bjss and the other is David Lilley from Birmingham City Council.

Whilst we find many delivery managers tend to prefer working with Scrum, Igor will be talking about what really goes into Kanban, how it’s not “scrum without the ceremonies” at all and often can involve more effort to implement. This talk also shows the advantages of using Kanban for certain types of projects. It will create a great discussion around Kanban for future projects.

Igor is a delivery manager at one of our bjss chapters, trained PSM 2 level and SPS scaled professional scrum and recently certified in “PSK - Professional Scrum with Kanban”.

David will realease his topic ASAP.

Please join us for free drinks, pizza and networking, to discuss what we can do in the future together as a community.

We are looking forward to seeing you there!
