Mon 18th September: Adrian Frost and Ian Franklin - Conflict Doesn't Have to Mean Confrontation, a co-created event plus Gwen Diagram - How Becoming T-Shaped Can Cause a Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

Eventbrite - September 2017 Agile Yorkshire Meetup

Most software products emerge from teams of people collaborating together, but the quality and style of that collaboration can have a considerable influence on any outcome. Any group of people working together needs time to form but is there a way for individuals or organisations to get better at that? Any improvements would surly make a difference to product development outcomes and therefor be commercially worth while? This month we'll be exploring team interaction with three speakers: Adrian Frost and Ian Franklin from IdeaSmiths and Gwen Diagram, long standing Agile Yorkshire participant and current testing superstar at Sky.
