PaR - Processes as RequirementsGatherings

PaR Community Gatherings

Sometimes we want to have fun together, a wine or a beer, and good discussions.

communicative PaR - Nov/Dec.2022 Berlin/Stuttgart

On Mo.28th Bernhard, Martin, me and about 200 others joined at the re:WORK Conference in Berlin.
On Fr.09th Martin, me and about 45 others made a 5hr workshop at the ESE Conference in Sindelfingen/Stuttgart.
We met members of the PaR community, and we also met new people being interested in joining in.

We had good presentations and discussions about PaR, R4J, platforms, reuse, and we visited some nice Christmas markets.

eruptive PaR - Oct.2022 Andernach

On Fr.21st we visited Schloss Drachenburg, Drachenfels itself and had dinner at Laacher lake.
On Sa.22nd we visited the geyser center Andernach, the geyser Namedy itself and the Vulkan brewery.

We had good discussions about applying PaR in tools. Thomas and I decided to apply it to PTC Codebeamer next.

sunny PaR - Jun.2022 Lisbon

Actually this was not a PaR Community Gathering, but I absolutely enjoyed the Agile Coaching Retreat from Scrum Alliance in Sintra (Lisbon, Portugal, Fr.24th-Su.26th) with about 60 experts from Costa Rica, Brazil, USA, Australia and more. Mainly with Lisa Dawson, Ana Sofia Noivo, and Alexander Kylburg I worked out a coaching decision tree for helping executives to understand and support agile approaches. I gave key input to this approach and adopted and adapted the result for PaR to help executives to understand and support PaR in their company. It is now described in "PaR - The Book".

Also, driving 3000 km to Lisbon via Belgium, France and Spain and then 3000 km back via Spain, France and Luxembourg with my Tesla Model S was great fun. And also sleeping in that car with my Dreamcase was a real pleasure again - and with A/C over night convenient as well.
