Agile and Scrum are the new buzzwords. But how do you implement them within small development groups. During this workshop we will focus on the features of Scrum that have been useful for microStart, even when we collaborate with only 1 or 2 developers. Furthermore we will focus on some pitfalls while implementing Agile, based on microStart’s experiences.

Presenter: Jente Minne, microStart

After his MSC in Industrial design and a specialization in microfinance at the European Microfinance Programme, Jente started working as a volunteer manager for microStart, the leader in professional microfinance in Belgium. As he was always passionate about IT-systems and digitalization, he became responsible for the digital transformation of microStart in 2016. His speciality is the selection of low-cost but efficient IT-tools and the implementation of an agile mindset in the organisation.
