The agile manifesto tells us to value “working software over comprehensive documentation” but how can we practically apply this value without sacrificing quality and rigour? How can we ensure that our requirement providers and analysts connect with our coders and testers to deliver fast, reliable value? How do you solve the analysis conundrum and eliminate the “documentation handoff” that plagues many teams? If these questions interest you, this session is for you!
In this presentation, we cover how teams can use feature hypotheses to write just the right amount of documentation, methods to split features into the smallest possible chunk of value for iterative analysis, how to get fast feedback on outcomes and how an innovation day can change the paradigm and move you to documentation-less development.
The talk is jam-packed with practical examples from the presenter’s experience managing agile transformations and uses storytelling throughout to illustrate key points.
