GOTO Night: Scrum;

Let’s talk Scrum!

We are happy to announce the next GOTO Night: Scrum; with Jeff Sutherland & Steve Holyer.

Jeff Sutherland: Why you should use Scrum
Jeff  is the Co-Creator of Scrum and was a signer of the Agile Manifesto, which marked the start of the Agile movement. He has served as VP of Engineering or CTO at eleven different software companies, managing the last seven entirely using Scrum, and achieved industry-leading, hyper-productive results. At the GOTO Night, Jeff Sutherland will share his experience and answer questions from the audience.

Steve Holyer: Case study
Steve Holyer developed software for years on sites like and and for companies like UBS Investment Bank. He hoped someone knew a better way to do development but did not trust Agile Project Management at all. So he faced his fears and tried Scrum. Now he coaches Scrum teams at Liip AG as a Certified Scrum Master and is the lead technical adviser to the lean-minded startup At the GOTO Night Steve will talk about:

“Obstacles, roadblocks and impediments threatened to sink our project. We removed them and discovered Scrum, or so the legend goes. Hear the story of how the Scrum framework enables development for the Agile web agency Liip AG. Identify specific challenges the Liip Scrum teams have faced while uncovering better ways to create bespoke applications for the web. Discuss ways to use the scrum framework and the agile principles to meet the challenges and deliver valuable working software.”

After the Q&A session drinks and snacks will be served. Join us and meet other Scrum users and experts from and around Zürich!
