These days, it’s hip to be Agile. Companies who want to be industry leaders are adopting Agile as their improved software development lifecycle. Or are they? While many companies are fully committed to adopting Agile, some are adopting it in name only. Some Agile teams flourish, while others can barely move ahead. As a tester, you may be struggling to fit into an Agile team, or perhaps you discovered that Agile isn’t working well and you have mini-Waterfalls instead. Maybe you are interested in learning how great Agile teams work.
You are invited to come learn about agile project delivery, a tester’s role, and how high-performing agile teams flow. In this interactive tutorial we will experience what it is like to work on agile teams, both good and bad, and discover what it takes to become a part of a strong Agile team. Whether you are curious about Agile, or are working in an Agile organization, you will leave with valuable insights and practical techniques you can readily apply at work.
When the workshop is completed, the attendees will be able to:
- Understand the different Agile frameworks and the benefits and considerations in using each of them.
- Shift into the Agile Mindset, and learn the importance of adopting this different way of thinking and working in order to be successful as an individual, a team, and a company.
- Discover the rhythm of high-performing Agile teams: How they think, how they work, how they act.
- The role of a tester on an Agile team, and the importance of creative and critical thought processes.
Target audience: This workshop is suitable for all audiences.
