Whether you are trying Scrum, Kanban, or a hybrid approach, a critical component to successful value delivery is your teams’ ability to iterate and work incrementally. Small increments and iteration allow for organic product enhancement to emerge.
This workshop will include material on work-in-progress, flow, and how to break work down to small, incremental slices. We will spend time learning about small vs. large batch development, writing good user stories with acceptance tests, and managing project scope intelligently with tools like story maps. We will practice with mock requirements; creating real user stories, acceptance criteria, and story maps. We will also play games and simulations to better understand the flow of customer value.
Learning goals: - How to break work down in to smaller “chunks”. - How to achieve “flow” in our team or organization. - The principles behind Lean, Kanban, and Lean Startup and how they apply to Agile organizations.
Workshop is ideal for developers, analysts, testers, product owners, and development managers. Prior Agile experience is useful, but not necessary.
