1. User stories are core to many agile methodologies but are often misunderstood by those new to agile. However, proper user stories are crucial for planning, scoping, delivering value, and change management. This hands-on event will be spent creating, evaluating, and hopefully improving our own user story skills.

  2. Kanban is a system for visualizing your work, enabling flow, and reducing waste. It is a simple technique that enables you to see benefits immediately. It encourages and promotes work in process limits, continuous flow, improved quality, teamwork, real time status reporting, and visualizes bottlenecks.

    At this month’s event Steve Porter and a group of volunteers will teach us the principles and mechanics of kanban through the GetKanban game. As always, we’ll be having a discussion on how this can be applied to your organization.

    Steve Porter is currently the product manager for Telerik’s agile project management tool, TeamPulse. As a Professional Scrum Master and Professional Scrum Trainer, Steve has traveled around the world speaking on the benefits of adopting strong ALM processes and implementing tools to support the entire development lifecycle.

    In his role as an Agile coach, he has mentored teams from all over the world to help them make the successful transition to Agile application development. He has honed his pragmatic approach over many years of working on projects, both big and small, that have ranged from widely successful to catastrophic failures. He has studied directly under Ken Schwaber and David J Anderson, and his years in the trenches have given him the wisdom to focus on getting the best results from what you have, rather than blindly implementing the newest trend.

  3. Part 3 of 3

    We were excited to have Maria Matarelli and Brian Levy in town for the fall PMI Manitoba Workshops and they agreed to present at Agile Winnipeg while they were here.

    Acceptance Test Driven Planning (ATDP) is an Agile planning technique which incorporates XP planning practices with a few additions to produce more predictable outcomes for the team. It incorporates requirement capture activities, prioritization of those requirements, and estimation of the effort. ATDP culminates in delivery of business value on a consistent basis. ATDP prepares the business partners, product ownership, and customer stakeholders to deliver more refined requirements through an understanding of the development methods within the agile spaces. Let’s talk about how to build these relationships, communications, and behaviors beyond the scrum team and IT personnel.

    Enterprise Agility comes in two parts. One is the agile transition as part of business transformation. The other is the use of game theory, iterative practices, and visual workflow aids in business operations across an enterprise. Calling one “Agile in the Enterprise” and the other “Business Agility”, value and quality are realized throughout the organization, including the early phases of a transformation to ensure buy-in and momentum from all interested parties and stakeholders.
