One Vision, One Product, Many Ways of Working

Do you have multiple teams using different methodologies developing one product? Do you find it challenging to support their ways of working while keeping a singular vision?

Example-Driven Architecture Improves Design and Testability

Providing concrete BDD-style examples as acceptance criteria for user stories is a powerful way to influence the testability of your architecture. This is especially true if developers are provided the examples before starting development and they are responsible for the automated execution of those examples. This talk illustrate how the examples can have this benefit.

Managing Scope vs. Detail in BDD-style Examples

Examples are a powerful way to communicate what "done" looks like for agile user stories. When they are automated, they can also act as very useful regression tests/checks. But most automated checks are too detailed to act as useful examples. This can be addressed by using a layered approach to examples in which we provide less detail for broader scope examples and narrower scope for more detailed examples.

Are we tired of seeing "sprints" and "iterations" used as ways to pressure people into working harder and longer ("pushing velocity"), with no training or learning or even autonomy? Are n-week death ...more »

CONNECTING Rally, Jira, & TFS into ONE Agile Portfolio Rollup!

At Equifax we had the Tooling "Holy War" of Agile software and ultimately chose to preserve the right of our Agile teams to work the way that they preferred: 1. .NET folks insisted on TFS with the Visual Studio IDE integration. 2. Jira teams had learned the Greenhopper bolt-on to the bug tracker. 3. Rally users preferred the more natural alignment with Scaled Agile and business-friendly usability. Software vendors ...more »
