Our own Andre Dhondt is presenting a session on . . . Vertical Slicing . . .
The Keystone Habit: Vertical Slicing
The Agile practice of Vertical Slicing is usually done with very long User Stories "Epics" that consume vast amounts of time and energy. Vertical Slicing is the best approach to manage complexity and resources in an Agile, customer-oriented style.
If all you do is learn one thing about agile--thin vertical slicing--and put it into practice correctly, everything else comes along for the ride: progressive elaboration, team swarming, limited work in progress, and rapid feedback.
Find out how to do thin vertical slices, and reap the benefits of delivering business value at a rapid cadence!
We will be looking for long-time members to show up and share experience stories of their successes with this technique, and when it did not quite meet their needs, and how they adjusted.
( The topic is a back to basics, so that the newer members of AgilePhilly get to ask questions and get involved in some questions and answers and experience stories with the group. . . as well as experienced Agile users to reflect on the basics to be shared with coworkers. )
