During my presentation, I talked about how we've approached writing infrastructure code for agile42 and Agilo Software with the same focus and professionalism that we dedicate to application code. This means, for example, to use TDD in order to have better design besides all of the benefits that this technique provides ...

The article, titled Organisation development using Scrum or Kanban (Organisationsentwicklungnach Scrum oder Kanban) explains how simple rules and transparency are the two things that stand out in Agile Practices like Scrum and Kanban.

However, introducing them into the organization is sometimes not as easy as it seems. The transition to using agile methods doesn’t only change the processes within the company, it also requires a change ...

I spoke about Experience Canvas and Agile at the IIBA (International Institute of Business Analysis) Vancouver Chapter on May 16 during a sold-out event. The title of the talk was Estimate Value to Deliver Value: Effectively Estimate the Value of Requirements with the Experience Canvas.

Dave Sharrock at IIBA Vancouver in May 2016

In order to succeed, the Business Analyst needs to continually compare the value of different projects or work requirements to make sure that the teams are working on the most valuable items at any one time. But how can you compare new ...
