Come join our special event, a joint meetup between XP+Agile and NYC Lean/Kanban!
Our Topic is: Kanban Intersections with XP practices
Lean and Kanban are not ends in themselves; they are great for shining a light on bottlenecks and enabling an efficient flow of work to deliver business value. But how do we deal with those bottlenecks, anyway? How can we prevent them in the first place? How can we analyze our requirements better so we can understand the business value that we are supposed to be delivering?
This is where good XP Practices come in!
We will talk about story splitting and test automation.
With lots of examples and lessons learned to share, we hope to spark a lively discussion.
