Cognitive Bias in Agile Teams

Online event

[ZOOM] Cognitive Bias in Agile Teams PLUS 2 ⚡lightning talks⚡!

PRESENTATION DETAILS:
The value #1 in Agile manifesto values “Individuals and Interactions” over “Processes and tools”. Hence therefore, it's crucial for members in agile teams to work with freedom, cohesion, trust and harmony. “Cognitive Bias” is a term that refers to an error in our brains in the way it processes information rapidly. It is thus imperative to understand how these biases work, how they may hinder team collaboration in agile teams and what agile practices can do to help us establish better interpersonal relationships and connections.

In this talk, we will, through a series of experiments, look at 7 cognitive biases, their influences and methods to circumvent , overcome or take advantage from them.
