DCG Software Value's Tom Cagley to Present at Agile Philly: AgileTour 2016
Tom Cagley to offer best practices for Agile backlog development.
Agile Philly: AgileTour 2016 is a half-day conference that brings together Agile practitioners and enthusiasts from around the Philadelphia region to further the use and knowledge of the Agile framework.
Tom Cagley, Vice President of Consulting and Agile Practice Lead at DCG Software Value, will present on Agile storytelling, an underutilized technique that Agile teams can use to create an initial backlog. Tom will explain how to assemble a cross-functional team and use facilitated storytelling to generate a set of scenarios, which are then decomposed into features, epics, and user stories using standard grooming techniques. He will also demonstrate how groups can implement this process within their organization.
"A sprint backlog is a necessary element of a successful Agile process, providing a team with a clear understanding about what tasks need to be done," said Tom. "Despite its importance, many teams struggle with effective backlog creation. I look forward to sharing how storytelling facilitates backlog creation while drawing on the importance of communication in the Agile methodology."
This year's conference will be held October 10 at Frontline Education (previously Frontline Technologies)
In addition to speaking, DCG is also a sponsor of this year's conference.
