Give Thanks for Scrum 2023: Empiricism in the Modern World


Give Thanks for Scrum 2023: Empiricism in the Modern World


Join us on Tuesday November 21, 2023 Live at Microsoft in Burlington, MA for Agile Boston’s 15th Annual Give Thanks For Scrum event.

That’s right … for 2023, the GIVE THANKS FOR SCRUM event is once again LIVE!!

THE THEME OF THE 2023 EVENT: Empiricism in the Modern World

Applying Scrum in an Age of Uncertainty

When everything is changing, empirical process is essential. Empiricism and Lean Thinking are the pillars of Scrum, but often both are overlooked in any transformation. We focus instead on accountabilities, events and artifacts, but often forget why we are embracing these new concepts in the first place. We also overlook the importance of Empiricism at every level in your organization, not just at the team level.

Join us as we explore exercising Empiricism with Scrum, in an age of constant change, driven by technologies like AI, complex social media and robotics…to name a few.


You may not know that Scrum was born in Boston and thus it is very appropriate that Give Thanks For Scrum has become a true Boston tradition!
