Too often software development is driven by costs and costs drive schedules. But it is difficult to win when everyone thinks it should cost less and someone, somewhere will offer to do it for less – even if they are not capable.
To really succeed in software, and to really get the most from Agile working analysts, managers and teams need to work on the value side of the equation. How much value will this work deliver?
But value is tied up with dates, sooner is usually worth more than later so we need to rethink how work is scheduled.
In this presentation Allan Kelly will look at how software teams can work with on the value side, use business benefit to guide development, appreciate how time changes value and how this approach fits with the #NoProjects agenda.
Allan Kelly advises teams from many different companies and domains on adopting and deepening Agile practices and development in general. He specialises in working with software product companies and aligning products and processes with company strategy. When he is not with clients he writes far too much. He is the author of three books: “Xanpan – team centric Agile Software Development”, “Business Patterns for Software Developers” and “Changing Software Development: Learning to be Agile”; the originator of Retrospective Dialogue Sheets and a regular conference speaker.
