If you are doing Agile outside IT and you want to improve your ability to deliver value iteratively and incrementally this session is for you!
Now that we had your attention, please let us explain:
Agility has long since reached contexts other than software. Frameworks or methods such as Scrum or Kanban have been used in these contexts for years.
On the other hand, we all know that there is no Agile possible without the technical practices that allow us to work iteratively and incrementally, practices that neither Scrum nor Kanban deal with.
In the context of software, we have XP practices helping in that regard. But what are the technical practices in other types of products or initiatives outside of software?
It would be interesting to be able to answer this question in this session, but in complex contexts, practices are emergent, they need a journey, so it would be impossible to have a prescription to all the existing contexts. Because of this, we propose to change that question to the following:
What is the essence, the heart, of the technical practices that work in software?
We understand that if we can abstract this essence from the software context, this information could be useful to teams outside of software to find or generate the practices that apply to them.
In this sense, the proposal for this session is the following:
- Review one by one the technical practices that work in Software, rescuing its essence.
- Bring this information to a Canvas, so that teams that are exploring Agile in contexts other than software can use this base Canvas to identify their practices, or why not, create new ones.
- Recognize the technical practices that are commonly used in software contexts.
- Summarize the essence of technical practices presented.
- Be able to use the provided canvas to find technical practices in their context.
