In working with the smallest start-ups and largest enterprises we found that requirements analysis is the biggest obstacle for a successful product. Through continuous learning we helped Product Owners uncover and refine various techniques to improve requirements specification. The result was that teams across companies increased their focus on business value by delivering the right product well.
This session will cover topics including feedback cycles beyond retrospectives, next-level User Stories, test-driven requirements analysis, minimal viable-products and importantly: improving return on investment.
Agile analysis techniques
[email protected] @martincronje
“Agile” sucks! Long live agility
There is no one true way
11 teams over 5 companies
…improving analysis and planning…
… this is their journey
…and so our story begins
The dev teams always does it wrong!
The business always changes their minds!
Masking changes as incidents
Releases too bulky
Still takes too long
We didn’t handle all the cases!
Too much documentation
Getting it just right
Talking about the wrong things
Why? What is the value?
Velocity very erratic
Time consuming discussions
Non-stop planning meetings
Are we at our best?
Developers optimising business
We’re not there yet!
Use what works
Challenge your beliefs!
