"We are thrilled to be in Dublin, Ireland, for our 2017 European Global Gathering," said Lisa W. Hershman, Scrum Alliance interim CEO.

We can't wait to demonstrate and discuss how our community in Europe has been implementing Scrum."

Attendees will hear presentations from experts in the field, including Hershman and members of the global training and coaching community, who will inspire with stories of success, current implementation best practices, and creative applications of Agile principles.

Centered around prioritizing individuals over tools and processes, this year's European Global Gathering will focus on the importance of skilled, professional individuals who are empowered and respected within their organizations.

Sessions, tracks, speakers, and demonstrations will show how an empowered worker leads to a better product. Features include:

Open Space every day : Scrum and Agile work in action as attendees self-organize and develop sessions in real time.  

On-site creation of an artificial intelligence (AI) code : Xavier Detant uses Scrum principles to create an AI code from scratch.    

"Our Gathering co-chairs Iain McKenna and Michel Goldenberg have assembled an incredible group of experts to both instruct and breed inspiration for attendees in a plethora of fields from coding to business process," Hershman said. "Attendees are going to walk away from three days in Dublin with a better understanding of how to truly implement Scrum, empower their coworkers and employees and, ultimately, have a healthier bottom line, a happier customer, and a more satisfied work life."
