Agile Requirements Discovery

A recurring challenge with software development is how to respond efficiently to the constantly changing requirements. Throughout this session, we will examine how to apply iterative discovery practices with the Scrum framework. Come learn how to improve your existing process and walk away with practical ideas that will enable you to drive those changes in your organization. We will explore well-known practices such as expressing desirements with user stories, illustrating stories with storyboards, 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.
