Calling all Business Analysts and Business Architects in Brisbane and surrounds to share experiences, stories, challenges and opportunities. We want to meet business professionals and explore our field with a leaning towards Agile practices and/or Lean approaches. We welcome all professionals who want to learn and share in a diverse and tolerant community.
Our June meetup is about an alternative style of interview that places emphasis on collaboration and engagement. Our presenters Martin and Young will facilitate an interactive session where attendees will learn about and then practise the technique:
"When recruiting a new agile business analyst for our team, we experimented with an alternative style of interview which borrowed from Lean Coffee (http://leancoffee.org/). We were able to chat to candidates in a less intimidating and more engaging manner. It set everyone at ease and helped bring out the best in people. Candidates felt invested in the process and experienced an enjoyable interview.
"In a Lean Coffee Interview, just as in a Lean Coffee discussion, participants collaboratively build an agenda, prioritise the items by voting, and work through the agenda in their conversation.
"After an introductory presentation, we will run a Lean Coffee discussion with meetup participants, both to open the discussion to the floor, and to give everyone interested an opportunity to experience it hands-on."
