Creg Schumann Presents: Why Scrum Teams Need BSAs

Join us for a professional development presentation on the three roles on Scrum teams: The Product Owner, the Scrum Master, and the Development Team, and where folks who perform business analysis fit into these teams.  Creg explores and talks about various organizations who have gained a lot of benefit incorporating these essential skills into their agile transformation.

Creg started his career doing assembly language and C coding.  Most recently, Creg presented at the Minnesota Government IT  Symposium a half-day workshop on User Story Writing.  He is the  owner of Orpheo Consulting and has been an Agile Coach for companies such as Wells Fargo, Thrivent Financial, and the Minnesota Department of Public Safety.

Learning points:

  • Understand where and how business analysis skills are employed inside of a Scrum Team.
  • How to support the Product Owner, work with the Scrum Master, and collaborate and create products with your Development Team members.
  • Using your skills in business analysis, learn how you support defining the product to build, ensure the whole development team gains understanding and feedback from users and stakeholders, and ensure the completed product is quality.

While supplies last, all members that attend the meeting will receive a free leadership book, or Kit Welchlin’s book, The Communication Kit: Volume 2!

If you want to attend the June 13th meeting via the video streaming option, you need to register for the meeting more than 24 hours ahead of the event by selecting a video streaming ticket.  We will email you streaming instructions the morning of the June 13th meeting. 

Location:  Marriott Airport  2020 American Blvd. East, Bloomington, MN 55425
