Creative Thinking in Agile Requirements Processes

Dienstag, 28. März 2017, 09:15

 

 

This keynote investigates the intersection of agile requirements practices and creative thinking. Agile requirements practices are now widely adopted in software projects. These practices are often associated with more creative and innovative work, however there is little evidence that agile techniques, used on their own, enhance creative thinking about new requirements. New agile practices and creativity techniques adapted to the needs of these practices are needed. Therefore, the keynote will frame the challenges that agile practices pose, present selected creativity techniques for use in agile projects, and report case studies about their use. Delegates will be directed to online resources to use for more creative and agile requirements work. 

Neil Maiden is Professor of Digital Creativity in the Faculty of Management at the Cass Business Business and co-founder of the Centre for Creativity in Professional Practice at City University London. He initiates and leads interdisciplinary research in software engineering, creativity science and integrated health and social care.

Der Ziel ist im Weg

Warum Ziele Quatsch sind – und wie Sie sie trotzdem erreichen

Dienstag, 28. März 2017, 17:45

 

Anstatt zu Leistung zu motivieren, bewirken Ziele oft das Gegenteil: Sie bremsen – und zwar den einzelnen sowie ganze Teams und Organisationen. Dabei ist es gar nicht so schwierig, Ziele zu erreichen! Wenn man weiß, wie es wirklich geht … 

„Wir brauchen Ziele, Ziele, Ziele!“ – so lautete lange Zeit das Credo der Motivationspsychologie. Mittlerweile ist aber klar: Ganz so einfach ist es nicht, mit den lieben Zielen. Denn oft genug sabotieren sie Erfolg eher, anstatt ihn zu unterstützen: Falsch formuliert und angegangen, wirken Ziele häufig wie Alibis, führen zum Selbstbetrug und demotivieren letztlich.

Scrum: Disrupting the Automotive Industry

Mittwoch, 29. März 2017, 09:00

 

 

Old-thought manufacturing teams gather requirements, design the solution, build it, test it, then finally deliver it to market. Today, in some automotive companies, the design portion can take three to twelve years followed by a build cycle of five to fourteen years. This means it is possible to buy a brand new car which represents a team’s understanding of what the customer needs were twenty-four years ago!

Using the Scrum framework, Joe Justice founded Team WIKISPEED, enabling a completely different pace of development. This all Scrum volunteer-based, “green” automotive prototyping company, iterates an entire car every seven days. Learn how they use Scrum with Lean production methodologies to compresses the entire development cycle into a one-week “sprint.” 

Joe Justice is President of Scrum@Hardware, Scrum, Inc. and Founder, Team WIKISPEED
