What role do you play in the Agile world?

Product Manager working with two development teams. Participant in the requirement gathering, story creation, backlog prioritization, customer collaboration, retrospective attendee, etc

How much experience do you have with Agile practices?

We've started the participant in some of the agile practices 2 years ago. We've recently been able to apply more agile process with 2 week sprints and leadership support.

What are you wanting to learn the most about?

Culture/Company buy-in on the agile process - How have other companies achieved this? How do you continue to keep the momentum once they are on board? Load/Pen testing - How have others made this a priority? Who completes the work in other organizations? Individuals with multiple jobs - How do you manage one architect across 3 teams? Should they also contribute to development work? Effective teams - How should you handle updates to the team that won't cause extreme slowdown in work/disruption to the team? How often is it recommended? Retrospectives - How do refresh so people are providing valuable feedback? How do you prevent people from only speaking up during retrospects vs. daily stand-ups?

How did you hear about us?
