  • Why teams use Scrum and Kanban are arguments you’ve explained to people in pubs by mistake
  • You can lead a talented bunch of tech people through a backlog into a well built shiny, sustainable and usable piece of software win.
  • A new adventure is on the cards – exploring East Africa has always been on The List
