Spektrix Conference 2019

How Agile Ideas Can Help You Lead Your Team

How Agile Ideas Can Help You Lead Your Team

4.15pm - 4.45pm

There are obvious reasons why the Spektrix engineering team uses agile principles for software development; what might be less obvious is that there are plenty of great tools hanging out in the agile toolbox that can help address problems for non techy teams too. These include things like planning, gathering feedback, team dynamics and communications and prioritisation.

Using these tools, this session will look at how to work in small, cross-functional teams, review progress and drive projects to completion. It's particularly relevant for anyone working on short term (two week to three month) projects or people wanting to break complex long term strategies into smaller chunks.

Key Takeaways

  • There are useful agile tools that can be used in almost any situation (but be wary of subscribing to all things because they’re “trendy”)

  • How to commit to a goal for each sprint and make sure it’s delivered on time.
