I'll be hosting a workshop and a talk. Both are about the business view of software development. One will be specifically about Agile:
- Business Agility. How to take advantage of an Agile R&D?
Many companies have jumped on the Agile bandwagon. That's good, but what for? In this talk we explore the consequences and possible benefits of adopting Agile for your Business. It's not enough to benefit your R&D, we need to learn how Agile can help our whole company.
The other talk will be more generic, but about something that is critical for Agile teams: a workshop about creating a Vision that speaks to the team and can therefore guide the software development:
- Workshop "From an idea to a Vision you can implement"
You've been there. You are tasked with implementing a product that someone else cooked up. What do do next? Follow the spec you say? Wrong!
Developing a product without this Vision is not just waste, it is bad business for you and for your customer.
Before we start implementing any product we must explore it's reason to exist, what customers it benefits and ultimately how it can help your customers (not you!) make money.
In this workshop we will take an example and go through a simple process that helps us explore a product idea to the point that a spec is just a reference, but the product comes alive in the minds of the team members.
