Learning by doing at Bell Mobility OSS
In the fall of 2014, the OSS group in Bell Mobility began a transformation towards using more Agile and Lean software development practices in order to optimize the delivery of value to their business partners and better serve Bell clients.
In this presentation, Alain Fortier, the General Manager of the OSS group and Steffan Surdek, agile coach at Pyxis Technologies will talk about the first year of this journey. They will explore how putting the focus on learning by doing helped the management team as well as the development find better ways of working together.
Participants will hear many stories about the lessons we learned on this journey and how the pieces are starting to come together after a year. We will share stories around various experiments we tried and how we were able to build on these experiments to foster and enable a culture of learning by doing.
Introduction to Agile, using AgileMike Kaufman
schedule 1 year agoSold Out!
Are you curious about agile and agility? Are you just starting out and have more questions after your “boot camp” training? Bring your questions and build the content of the discussion in real time. I’ll demonstrate agile practices in a highly interactive workshop using your own content. No two workshops are the same, because the list of questions are always different! You, the audience, will build the backlog (content/questions), I will estimate them, and then you prioritize the backlog. I’ll go in 10-minute “sprints” taking items off the backlog, answering your questions and addressing your content. AFter, we’ll have a review and a retro. We’ll get as many “sprints” in as we can before our time is up. You walk away with your questions answered, and a “live” demo of what agility looks like in practice.
