Event Details

Jose Casal and Richard Tasker

Thinking and decision making in an lean / agile way is not easy or often natural. Taking a big picture viewpoint and avoiding myopic optimisation takes practice and insight. Any organisation trying to shift its culture faces many challenges and it takes time. As a result many organisations still function in the same way they always have. Jose Casal is here this month to shine some light on what can be done within this context to improve outcomes with the application of modern management methods. Stepping away from the run of guidance and process based topics we’ve recently had Richard Tasker will get back to agile engineering and back to basics with an introduction to Behaviour Driven Development and its interface with user requirements.

Jose Casal - Using Agile in Non-Agile Organisations

Jose will discuss how we can successfully use Agile principles and practices in non-Agile organisations, why and how Agile can help businesses significantly improve their results and what are some of the most surprising business performance metrics that we can improve using modern management methods.

Richard Tasker - Why you Should be Doing BDD

A brief introduction to Behaviour Driven Development. With an explanation of how to translate user stories and requirements in to tests, with a few test examples from a number of different BDD frameworks.
