Why on earth would such an archaic tool be of interest to the modern Agile project team? Like mind mapping, stand-ups and storyboards it is a powerful tool that brings people together to collaboratively tackle complex problems. When used well, charrette allows a project complex (build team, stakeholders, management, client, users etc) to mine and filter creative information from a diverse group of contributors in a proactive and energized way.&nbsp;</span></span></span></div> <div style="color: #444444; font-family: Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: large; line-height: 22px; text-align: left; background-color: #ffffff;">&nbsp;</div> <div style="color: #444444; font-family: Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: large; line-height: 22px; text-align: left; background-color: #ffffff;"><span style="color: #6fa8dc; font-family: Calibri; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap; background-color: transparent;"><span style="line-height: 20px; font-family: 'Segoe UI', sans-serif; font-size: 13.5pt;"><span style="color: #000000;">Is your team tired of watching one person push pieces of architecture or UI around on a screen while everyone else watches? Do you need a fast planning spike between sprints one and two? Here is alternative method to electrify the process. A brief talk on the charrette process will be followed by fun and interactive team exercises demonstrating its practical use; providing attendees with hands-on skills to put this process to work immediately. </span></span></span></div> <div style="color: #444444; font-family: Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: large; line-height: 22px; text-align: left; background-color: #ffffff;">&nbsp;</div> <div style="color: #444444; font-family: Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: large; line-height: 22px; text-align: left; background-color: #ffffff;"><span style="color: #6fa8dc; font-family: Calibri; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap; background-color: transparent;"><span style="line-height: 20px; font-family: 'Segoe UI', sans-serif; font-size: 13.5pt;"><span style="color: #000000;">Creative controlled chaos ahead!</span></span><span style="color: #000000; font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-size: small;"><br /></span></span></div> <span style="background-color: #ffffff; color: #000000; font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-size: small;"> <p style="margin: 0in 0in 10pt; line-height: normal;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin: 0in 0in 10pt; line-height: normal;"><strong><span style="font-family: 'Segoe UI', sans-serif; font-size: 13.5pt;">Speaker Bio:&nbsp;Ardith Lanstra-Nothdurft, RLA/MBA</span></strong></p> <span style="font-family: 'Segoe UI', sans-serif; font-size: 13.5pt;"> <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;"><span style="color: #000000;"><span style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: small;"><span style="font-family: 'Times New Roman';">&nbsp;</span></span></span></span></p> <span style="color: #000000;"><span style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: small;"> <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;"><span style="font-family: 'Segoe UI', sans-serif;">Ardith has been agile-ing around the Pacific Northwest with Joseph Flahiff of Whitewater Projects for two years now. She has a Master's degree from University of Pennsylvania's Graduate School of Design and an MBA from University of Washington with a focus in Change Management. For the past seventeen years she has worked with some of the least Agile organizations in the northwest: enormous distributed, matrixed teams on large government capital improvement projects. Whitewater Projects has worked with governmental teams, setting them free of process for process sake and introducing a new concept, a delivered deliverable.</span></p> </span></span></span></span></span></p>
