Agile Productivity (Bill Wake, Tim Ottinger)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Abstract:
More, faster: everybody wants that.
Low productivity makes products late and expensive, frustrating both teams and customers.
But what is productivity? Why is it so hard to measure?
Organizations want higher productivity, but use industrial-age models better-suited to assembling widgets than developing software.
We’ll explore a model that works for software teams.
Learn several ways to boost - or drag down - productivity in your projects.
You’ll walk out with concrete techniques to apply in your context.
Learning Outcomes:
  • Begin thinking in terms of impact, not output
  • Move focus from “working harder individually” to “accomplishing more together"
  • Recognize organizational habits that limit productivity
  • Discover ways to organize teams and their work to increase productivity
