For those of you living in the Ottawa area, Monday night (May 13th), I will make a presentation at the Ottawa IT Community. This event is free and takes place at the Ottawa Microsoft Office. I am speaking at 17h45.
I will do a talk about “Agile Practices for Requirements Discovery”. In addition to explaining how to groom efficiently the product backlog, I will demonstrate how to use a slingboard to track backlog grooming.
Agile Practices for Requirements Discovery
A recurring challenge with software development is how to respond efficiently to the constantly changing requirements. Throughout this session we will examine efficient practices for backlog grooming. Come learn how to improve your existing process using visual aids inspired by Kanban boards. Walk away with proven practices to organize and structure the collaboration. We will explore well-known practices such as expressing desirements with user stories, illustrating stories with storyboards and sizing stories using planning poker. Armed with tools and skills acquired, you can expect to see significant improvements in your ability to manage your product backlog.
