Diana Larsen, Agile Fluency Project
Going “Agile” can confer a number of benefits to an organization, but all too often those promised benefits aren’t fully delivered. Do you have the visibility you need to understand progress and make timely market-focused decisions? Do your teams deliver business and customer value? Do your teams ship on a frequency and with the level of quality your customers can, and want, to accept? Are your software deliverables sustainable and maintainable? Does innovation flourish in and across teams? How about reduced cycle time? A model of the predictable, observable fluent proficiencies of agile team competency helps managers and leaders define the benefits they’re getting, determine the benefits they really want, and plan next steps. It helps all team members, including test, know their path on the journey and identify next steps.
In this talk, Diana Larsen explores how everyone can use the model to analyze and monitor the progress of Agile teams. The key takeaways will be:
- Role of Testing/Testers as teams develop fluent proficiency
- Relevance of focusing on benefits and investments
- “Agile” can and should look different for different teams
