Open Mic: Coaching Up in Your Organization

Add to calendar
Wednesday, November 6, 2019 - 10:30am to 11:30am

The term “coaching up” traditionally refers to communication with a supervisor or person above you in the organizational chart. Coaching up strategies can be effective for all levels: Have you ever had a conversation with a boss, product owner, ScrumMaster, or leader that did not go well? Is one of your teammates dropping the ball? Often our instincts tell us to go on the defensive, which may result in the blame game. Instead, when difficult situations happen—or, better yet, when you anticipate them—let superiors know in a polite and helpful manner. They will appreciate your initiative....

Story Mapping Forward and Backward with DevOps

Add to calendar
Wednesday, November 6, 2019 - 11:45am to 12:45pm

User story maps capture the journey a customer takes with your product, including activities and tasks needed to make that journey a successful one. Typically they begin from the point where the customer has a problem and continues until the feature solving that problem is built. However, rarely do we see the story map include DevOps themes such as release and configuration management activities, or even feature activation. Join Catherine Louis as she guides you through the anatomy of a user story map, including DevOps aspects. You will create a story map from problem discovery to...

Example Mapping: The New Three Amigos

Add to calendar
Wednesday, November 6, 2019 - 11:45am to 12:45pm

Example mapping is a collaboration technique used by teams to help refine requirements. Every team should have a set of “ready” criteria that includes some kind of workshop between development team members to establish a shared understanding. In a time-boxed example mapping session, rules will summarize examples or constraints about a user story, and questions about outcomes or dependencies are documented for future refinement. The end result is requirements written as user behavior, with a shared understanding among all roles on the agile team. Come ready to participate in a live example...

How DevOps and Agile Fit with Compliance Obligations

Add to calendar
Thursday, November 7, 2019 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm

DevOps and agile are designed to help you be adaptable and move quickly. But meeting your compliance obligations tends to slow you down and make processes rigid. However, by using key components of agile and DevOps and approaching compliance obligations from a different angle, you can meet your obligations while being adaptable. Guy Herbert will show examples of how his company structures their CI/CD processes to include compliance and how they have changed their compliance approach to be able to better meet the needs of the DevOps teams. Guy will also discuss the cultural implications of...
