The Value of Feedback

Link visible for attendees

This is an online event. For those who RSVP you'll receive an email the day prior with the zoom details.

Abstract:
We consistently talk about feedback in Agile approaches. We need feedback. We want feedback. How can we shorten the feedback loops? More importantly how do we make these valuable? This session will start by showing the value in shortening the feedback loop; from there we will visit 3 types of feedback and some approaches to these. This will be a mixture of presentation and exercises.

Needs a location

This is an online event. For those who RSVP, you will receive zoom coordinates the day prior.

Abstract:
Do you have a team you are trying to transition to agile that already has a negative perception of Agile and scrum? Has the team tried multiple times and failed? Brute force Scrum implementation rarely works and is even more damaging in situations where the team’s have tried and failed or have a negative perceptions. Implementing Scrum without ever saying “Scrum” or “Agile” may be a good choice for you.
