Tuning and Improving Your Agility

Are you using agile practices but struggling? If so, you are not alone. Experienced agile practitioners know that some practices are more difficult than others, and most need tuning over time. If you are looking for ways to get more value or improve your skills, this session will pass your acceptance tests. David Hussman shares his coaching tools for improving and tuning practices including product planning, roadmapping, story writing, planning sessions, and stand up meetings. David divides the journey to deliver value into four essential areas: growing community and vision, planning releases and iterative delivery, delivering value, and continuing to improve and learn. For each area, David shares tools for evaluating the value you are receiving relative to the ceremony you are using. If your stand up lacks value or energy, learn new ideas for truly getting value instead of merely meeting and standing; standing is the easiest part.
