Big Apple Scrum Day Superhero Challenge

 

Are you up for the challenge?

As BASD grows in greatness, we ask ourselves… how can we also help each other to become bigger and better? The answer came to us like a flash in the night! Faster than a speeding bullet--what if each of us were Scrum Superheroes and we didn’t even know it!? Holy Agile, Batman! We invite you to begin your own hero origin story and DISCOVER YOUR SUPERPOWER!

 

Do you have what it takes to be a Scrum Superhero?

Today is just another ordinary Monday in our oh-so-very ordinary lives… or is it!? Begin the conference in your every-day civilian form. As you mingle around and attend various activities, unbeknownst to outsiders, you are part of a secret society of emerging superheroes! Posing as just another normal Agilist in NYC, today will be filled with a series of hero challenges designed to evolve your skills from the average New Yorker to human sidekick to courageous hero warrior to your final incarnation: superpowered Scrum superhero!  

 

Are you ready to take your first step towards Scrum greatness?

Join us on an Agile journey and complete quests throughout the day, while earning your HERO POINTS along the way! By participating in these quests, you will be better equipped to go up against the evil Waterfall Villain and his minions of command and control, bad business culture, and unhelpful processes… Collect the skills you need, level up to your Scrum Superhero status, and defeat these Agile inefficiencies, once and for all! Once you’ve saved the day, stop by the SUPERHERO CENTER to exchange your points for prizes, power ups, and professional paths of mastery!
