5 Whys Challenge – Almudena Rodriguez Pardo

I have a confession to make. I’ve never played World of Warcraft. Kind of a missing notch on my geek belt. But if you have, you probably know it’s about building up a team, getting on a journey toward success, relying on communication and with many risks and uncertainties on the way. Sounds familiar?  That’s…

5 Whys Challenge – Stuart Young

Stuart Young is no ordinary guy. Stuart live- draws sessions, and teaches people how to visualize their ideas. If you know a bit about agile practitioners, you know we like to visualize things. Mind maps, kanban boards, sticky notes and sharpies – anything goes. I see more people start to document meetings and sessions with…

We’re starting the road to Agile Practitioners 2017 (which you should register to now), and we’re beginning it with Jan Jaap. Jan Jaap has a very interesting story. He was a manager for many years.

My turn, my turn! But yeah, go ahead, take your time. I’ll wait here, while you register. And bring some friends. Now we can continue. Let me tell you a story. It begins in a conference a few years ago. I came prepared to do my “TDD a spaceship” workshop, expecting developers who want to…

Before you read this, you need to register. Show me your ticket. Good, you can continue. What is a team composed of? Scrum defines the product owner, the scrum master and “the team”. Initially, “the team” were developers. Today, testers are part of the team. But more and more we see other roles going into…

5 Whys Challenge: Kasia Mrowca

It’s coming! Can you feel the excitement? I do. And you know why? It’s because it’s an Agile Practitioners conference. And when you practice it, a lots of questions come up. Questions that can be answered by people’s experience. Kasia Mrowca‘s talk is a good example. When teams start praciticing scrum or any agile methodology,…

5 Whys Challenge: Elad Sofer

Less than 3 weeks to go! The conference theme, as you already know is “Hands on agility”. When you read into the program, you’ll see many workshops, where you can get your feet wet, or your hands dirty. Or the other way around. You think I’m using “hands-on” figuratively? Think again.
