Providing Technology Training and Mentoring For Modern Technology Adoption
The advent of agile has helped teams increase delivery speed, increase quality, and increase overall productivity. When a team transitions from waterfall to agile, it’s very common to still hang on to old ways of thinking. One of the last hold-outs is typically keeping a “project” mindset, where everything has to be fit into a project structure. This fits in with the “big planning up front” mentality, which is not agile at all.While there will always be larger initiatives, it’s important for teams to transition to a “product” mindset, where testing every idea before implementation is part of the culture, and software isn’t just delivered and forgot about. The value of the software that’s delivered should be measured and customer feedback actively sought, which then becomes feedback for new ideas.
In this course we’ll cover how to make the transition from project thinking, to product thinking. We will also introduce techniques on measuring the customer value of features, along with how the software delivery process can be changed to support this new way of thinking.
