Project Management SIG: The Great Agile Requirements Showdown!

Thu, 21 May 2009, 18:30 - 21:00 (Add to calendar) GMT
Sybase , Dublin, US

ABSTRACT: Agile evangelists claim that extensive written requirements can be dispensed with in favor of lighter-weight 'stories'. It sounds easier, certainly, but can it really be as good? Won't all of the important details get lost? We will stage a participatory showdown between traditional and agile requirements. May the best requirements win!

SPEAKER: Chris Sims helps organizations improve the productivity and happiness of their software development teams. His approach combines experiential training, coaching, and even direct technical contribution to help teams realize the benefits of a more agile approach to software development.

Chris is the founder of the Technical Management Institute, soon to be known as Agile Learning Labs. He is chair of the IEEE Technical Management Council of Silicon Valley, and is on the board of BayAPLN, the Bay Area chapter of the Agile Project Leadership Network.

Chris is a certified scrum master and practitioner, who has been doing agile software development since the turn of the century. He has made a living in roles such as: Scrum Master, Product Owner, Engineering Manager, Project Manager, C++ Developer, Musician, and Auto Mechanic.
