Regional Scrum Gathering℠ Tokyo 2021は、東京で行われるRegional Gatheringとして10回目になります。運営母体である一般社団法人スクラムギャザリング東京実行委員会は、スクラムを実践する人が集い垣根を超えて語り合う場を提供するという目的によりコミットしています。

Regional Scrum Gathering℠ Tokyo 2021 is a 10th annual Regional Gathering held in Tokyo, organized by a non profit organization "Scrum Tokyo". Our purpose is to provide a "Ba" (place) where practitioners share ideas among Scrum practitioners having a great diversity.

Great Speakers

Great keynote speakers will be on stage again this year. Also, we are open to new speakers. Many session proposals are received from both Japan and overseas, and superb sessions are selected from them.


One of the purpose many people participate RSGT is networking parties. Besides the official party on the first day, there seems to be spontaneous ones every day.

Have Fun

The pleasure of RSGT goes beyond listening to sessions and attending workshops. There must be various opportunities in the corridor of the venue, foyers, or even nearby cafes. Please find your own fun.

Online Keynote: What’s Testing Got to do with Quality?

Janet Gregory
the author of "Agile Testing", "More Agile Testing"

How does your team or organization measure quality? People often equate testing to good quality. If you have good testing practices, does that mean you have a good quality product? Many teams measure process quality and don’t realize they forget about the product quality – which is what the customer cares about.

There are many things that go into a quality product, and testing is only one aspect. Janet explores the interaction between the development process (which includes testing) and different types of quality measures that organizations use. She shares ideas about how a “good enough” process can make your product more valuable to customers. Discover different approaches you might use to measure your product’s quality.
