Upcoming Events At This Venue

October 28, 2014

Join Alistair Cockburn for a two-day workshop on Use Cases to User Stories and Story Maps. During this workshop, attendees will learn how to gather requirements and how to fit use cases and user stories together.
**Roam members receive 25% off the course fee. Use promo code, ‘Roam’ to get your discount.**

Course Description:
This course takes the view that use cases and user stories are fundamentally different tools and should be used for different purposes. Along the way, the attendee will have to face some surprises, such as what the broad range of “requirements” consists of, how to avoid the word “requirements” altogether,  and the implications of agile development for steering, cutting, trimming scope to deliver maximum value.

The attendee will learn the shortest, simplest path to writing an effective use case, ways to cut use cases into user stories, ways to organize the work requests with the storymapping technique, and ways to trim the work being done to deliver early, often, and to maximize benefit / minimize loss when the deadline makes it impossible to do everything. The techniques reviewed are valuable in carrying out any kind of project, not only agile ones.

This public training course is ideal for individuals and teams that are starting to use or already using agile development with questions about how to gather requirements.

Roam Presents: 10 Common Legal Pitfalls From Entrepreneurs

Lunch Lessons with Michael Horten of Horten CC

Entrepreneurial growth companies need to have their legal affairs in order. Why? The impact could be devastating if the founders have not anticipated “what-ifs” – such as a founder’s death or someone’s decision not to work for the company. Also, the company may be prevented from raising capital or having a successful exit event if the founders haven’t properly tended to the company’s legal matters.

This is why we want to help you.

In this Lunch Lesson, Michael Horten of Horten CC, will identify the key legal issues a start-up needs to address. The presentation will be amplified with war stories from Michael Horten’s many years of working with early-stage companies. The course will be highly interactive.

Course Outline:

  • Failure to incorporate early
  • Choosing right legal entity
  • Where to incorporate
  • Failure to complete company establishment
  • Failure to assign intellectual property/business to the company
  • Protecting the intellectual property
  • Failure to work out the relationship among the founders as owners, including covering all of the “what ifs”
  • Failure to work out the relationship among the founders as coworkers
  • Failure of founders subject to vesting to make a Section 83(b) election
  • Establish the right incentive awards
