Short corporate workshop ideas

Our team hosts a monthly forum get-together for team members at a similar stage of development. I'm hosting the next one (which is more informal), and I'm at a loss about what I should do. What are some 60 minute-ish corporate workshoppy things with general skills you have done that were actually useful? [more inside]

High Performing Software Teams

Awesome software engineering managers, what has made you successful? I am working with a Dev manager and my gut tells me our process is broken and teams are not working to their potential. The current manager is spouting the benefits of Kanban and has removed any of the normal Agile stuff ( storypoints, retros, sprints ). Last quarter they completely missed on the Roadmap and the team seems disengaged. Leadership is scared to lose talent and is coddling our engineering team. Help me instill a lightweight process and culture than gets results and keeps people happy. What is working for you?

Thoughts on software team status updates

I'm a project manager for a small software group (6 engineers) and I'm considering a different approach to gathering status from the team. I'd like to throw it out to the MeFi community first to see if it seems like something that would be beneficial and fair from the developer's point of view. It's basically a weekly list of tasks that are shared with everyone. Details inside... [more inside]

Which is better project management certificate program - Bellevue or UW?

Does anyone have any experience with the Project Management certificate programs at either Belleuve College (previously Bellevue Community College) or University of Washington Extension? Any comments on which is the better program? I'm thinking that the Bellevue program would be a better value career-enhancement-wise because of stronger connections to Microsoft and the tech industry in general, but UW is a better commute for me. This is for a person who has over 10 years of experience as a software developer and is looking at a career transition during the economic down time. Good understanding of and integration with Agile/Scrum would be a plus.
