We are engineers and we know how to write code.

We are QA engineers and we know how to test an application or product.

There are so many roles and so many perspective about the product / application team is building. Everybody is right in their perspective. Then the question is....are we/they missing something?

This session is going to explore the perspective beyond the perspective of an individual in team. We will try to move from individual perspective to a common perspective which is so much critical for each individual. We will talk about the user perspective and how it is important to get the 'out of box' picuture over a 'in side box' picture.

    schedule 8 years ago
    Sold Out!
    30 Mins

    In traditional risk management process, a complete list of potential risks with their priority and a plan to mitigate them is prepared upfront. A lot of time and effort is spent towards these hypothetical risks both in upfront planning and in ongoing monitoring and discussion.

    While in Agile, the process is rather emergent in nature. The realization of risk occurs quickly and abruptly. Team gets a sense of it at the earliest possible stage, delay time is less as the risk gets highlighted in the daily stand up, review, retrospectives or release/sprint planning meetings. It is more a real time thing in Agile. But are an application of these Agile practices enough to manage risks in an Agile bound project? Or with little adjustments can the traditional risk management be more powerful with Agile methods?

    The session will contain a comparative analysis of risk management in both the methodologies, some real life examples, case studies and how the traditional risk management process can be tailored fit for Agile. It will be a talk cum open discussion session.
