Reston, VA (PRWEB) October 07, 2016
Software testing and quality assurance firm XBOSoft will welcome software consulting expert Tom Cagley to guest present its fourth-quarter webinar, titled “Storytelling: Discover the Big Picture for Agile Efforts.” The hour-long webinar will go live on Thursday, October 20, 2016 at 11 am PT/2 pm ET.
One of the dilemmas most Agile teams face is how to generate an initial backlog. The best way to do this is by assembling a cross-functional team and using facilitated storytelling to generate a set of scenarios, which are then decomposed into features, epics, and user stories using standard grooming techniques. This process not only provides the team with the information needed to create user stories but also provides context for what is being built.
Cagley will teach participants how this process works, how it can be implemented in their organizations, and to what benefit. Using Cohn’s Planning Onion, Cagley will dissect the Agile process to help participants further understand the many mechanisms for developing and maintaining detailed backlogs, including asking, observing, and showing.
Join XBOSoft and Cagley for “Storytelling: Discover the Big Picture for Agile Efforts” on Thursday, October 20, 2016 at 11 am PT/2 pm ET, by registering at https://xbosoft.com/event/storytelling-agile-efforts-webinar-tom-cagley/.
