Agile Cambridge 2015 also features two workshop sessions held the day before the conference, each hosted by one of our Keynote Speakers.
As we become more collaborative, we need leadership everywhere in the organisation. Do you think of yourself as a leader? If you solve problems with people, you are a leader. It’s time to harness your leadership and learn to be more effective.
Great leaders lead from their personal mission. They adapt to their context. They can solve problems, not alone, but with others. They develop other people so they can create an organisation that has more capacity than it did before.
We’ll explore what it means to be a technical leader—regardless of your title.
Join Johanna Rothman to learn how you might discover your personal mission. Learn how can you increase your adaptability, a hallmark of a great leader. Consider how you might solve problems across the organisation, helping other people develop their skills for their and the organisation’s benefit.
The deceptively simple style of User Stories make them initially appealing, but potentially dangerous if not handled well. Many teams easily fall into bad habits and story dysfunctions, from having oversized epics that live for multiple iterations, to swarms of sticky post-its that leave external stakeholders baffled as to what is actually going to be delivered and when.
This practical tutorial addresses a number of challenges that agile teams face when working with Stories. We will explore a range of useful tips and techniques that will help you regain control of your backlog and allow you to create stories that are expressive, meaningful, concise and valuable.
This tutorial is primarily aimed at Product Owners, analysts, Scrum Masters and testers but will be beneficial for anyone responsible for creating, accepting and collaborating on the development of stories.
The tutorial contains a number of practical exercises to support the content.
Both Johanna and David's workshops will be arranged into the following timetable.
