Dori Borden
Room: Waterfront 3
Track: Business Agility
Session Type: Talk [Beginner]
Summary:

In this exciting Lightening Talk, I will cover the basics on how to focus on human interaction and communication when practicing Agile. Often, when implementing or practicing Agile, we tend to focus on the processes. But we can't forget the Agile Manifesto, which emphasizes communication and human interaction!

 

Learning Objects:

The principles I will cover are as follows:

  1.  What does it truly mean to put individuals over processes?
  2. How do you collaborate with the customer rather than negotiate contracts?
  3. How can you tell if your team is not communicating as they should?
  4. Face-to-face conversation is the best form of communication.

This session is all about what is truly important in Agile - Human interaction and communication.
