If people choose to, we can start the meeting by taking a tour of the space and talking a bit about how 12 or so Scrum teams are using it. Following that, Andrew Burrows, long-time NYC Scrum User Group member and IBM Design Lab ScrumMaster, will take us through an exercise in experiential learning - we'll learn (by doing) the practice of "Prospectives." (Prospective literally means "looking forward".)&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal; margin: 0px; padding: 0px 0px 8px; color: #000000; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; background-color: #ffffff; text-align: -webkit-auto;"><span style="font-family: tahoma, arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: small;">Join us!<strong>&nbsp;</strong></span><span style="text-align: -webkit-auto;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal; margin: 0px; padding: 0px 0px 8px; color: #222222; font-family: arial, sans-serif; background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.921569);"><span style="font-family: tahoma, arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: small; text-align: -webkit-auto;">----</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal; margin: 0px; padding: 0px 0px 8px; color: #000000; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; background-color: #ffffff;"><span style="font-family: tahoma, arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: small;">The&nbsp;<a style="color: #ee6600; text-decoration: none;" href="http://www.scrumalliance.org/user_groups/71">NYC Scrum User Group</a>&nbsp;meets on the third Thursday of every month to talk about&nbsp;<a style="color: #ee6600; text-decoration: none;" href="http://www.scrumalliance.org/pages/what_is_scrum">Scrum</a>, to share experiences, to network, and to provide support for local Scrum practitioners.</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal; margin: 0px; padding: 0px 0px 8px; color: #000000; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; background-color: #ffffff;"><span style="font-family: tahoma, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></p> <p style="line-height: normal; margin: 0px; padding: 0px 0px 8px; color: #000000; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; background-color: #ffffff;"><strong><span style="font-family: tahoma, arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: small;">Our sponsors:</span></strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <table style="color: #000000; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 20.796875px; background-color: #ffffff;" border="0" cellspacing="10" cellpadding="20" align="left"> <tbody> <tr> <td><img title="Havas Worldwide" src="https://evbdn.eventbrite.com/s3-s3/eventlogos/2125673/rsz1logohavas.jpg" alt="Havas Worldwide" width="456" height="109" /></td> <td>&nbsp;</td> </tr> <tr> <td><img title="IBM Design Lab" src="https://evbdn.eventbrite.com/s3-s3/eventlogos/2125673/ibmdesignlab300.png" alt="IBM Design Lab" width="300" height="50" /></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
