comment How to give the sense of a team that is fragmented based on projects?
@tylermac - I think there will be detractors. It's okay, just have the subset of people who are interested to actually attend. I imagine it's better to have a fraction of the team know what some other fraction is doing, than no one knowing anything. Also, if no one wants to share what they do, it looks like the OP would want to. In that case, the OP would share the new stuff with everyone else interested. If there's 0 interest from presenters and attendees, the team has bigger problems.

As much as I would like to believe that I'm paid more than other highly trained professionals because what I do is more difficult, challenging, etc, I know that's not why. The ROI answer is the right answer.

comment What have you seen go wrong when introducing SCRUM?
@gbjbaanb Ultimately it doesn't matter. Do you know what standing prevents though? And if so, how do you try to prevent it? And is it working for you?
