Clarke is author of "Rolling Rocks Downhill", the Agile business novel about TOC and Agile.
In 1984 Eli Goldratt's business novel, "The Goal", introduced a counter-intuitive, yet simple and outstandingly profitable, manufacturing technique to the world. That technique is now used by the majority of the world's largest manufacturers and "The Goal" is 1 of only 3 mandatory readings for all managers at Amazon.com.
This session, run by Clarke Ching, an expert in apply Goldratt's techniques to software development projects, and author of Rolling Rocks Downhill, also a business novel, shows how to apply the lessons from "The Goal" to accelerate Agile projects, large and small.
This is a commercially focused, rather than technical, workshop, where the goal is to make your business more profitable.
Nope, this session has nothing to do with user-stories. Rather, it's about everyday, "did I tell you about ...", stories - the kind you find in jokes, cartoons, novels and conversation - and how to use them to implement Agile in a non-threatening, yet surprisingly sticky way. You'll learn a little theory, you'll have a laugh, and you'll learn (at least) one story which will, one day, save your butt.
