Limited Capacity seats available

"Requirement" is a swear word to many in Agile development. In this talk, you'll learn why.

Jeff will describe how an Agile mindset changes a requirements gathering activity into collaborative work focused on understanding and solving problems for business and users. Jeff will explain Agile practices such as backlog building, user stories, and story mapping. You'll learn the flow of user stories from ideas and opportunities all the way through delivery to customers and users. Jeff will describe the difference between a product and project mindset and how to effectively use product discovery practices to understand your customers and users, identify solutions, and test those solutions early to validate that they have value before they're built. You'll leave with a good understanding of how requirements practice is different in Agile development, and the variety of practices and concepts used by Agile teams today.
