Choose your time slot and subject title wisely. Competing against Mike Milinkovich (Eclipse Foundation) and Alec Saunders, Michael Dunlevy (Founding Agreements) wasn’t a good choice. In addition, the title “Scrum in a Nutshell” only sells to people who already know what Scrum is (I was hoping for a wider audience). Perhaps next time I will choose a title like “Does your process hold your team back?”.
Finally, trying to squeeze the Scrum game into twenty minutes would have been a really bad idea – I’m glad that we stuck to discussion instead. Next time I will get the audience to drive more of the presentation content.
