This week Jama headed to Toronto for ProjectWorld BA World. The event brought together nearly 1,000 business analysts and project managers from all over North America for a chance to connect with each other, attend professional development sessions and meet with vendors.
Two members of our team, Derwyn Harris and Will French, sat on panels and spoke during sessions. Jama co-founder Derwyn sat on a panel that discussed when to consider Agile, sharing from his years of experience as a developer and product manager. The panel provided a great follow up to Derywn’s recent webinar, A Modern Take on the Agile Manifesto which addresses why and how we should reconsider tenets of the Manifesto in light of new technology and resources.
Will, senior solutions architect for Jama, gave tips for engaging stakeholders and building stronger feedback loops in his talk, Owning the Collaboration Circle on All of Your Future Projects. If you missed Will’s talk, be sure to register for his June 18 webinar for an encore presentation.
After day one of sessions we enjoyed a night of drinks, snacks and a ping pong tournament with attendees at our party at SPiN Toronto. It was a great way to unwind after a busy conference day and see some impressive ping pong matches.
We were glad to meet so many of the attendees and hear about the “monsters” BAs and PMs are facing in their work and talk about ways to overcome those challenges. See more of our photos from BA World on our Facebook page. If you attended tell us about your experience in the comments.
