Personal invite: 45 min workshop on agile progress reporting

Test progress reporting can be cumbersome. There is a complex story to be told, but it needs to be done in such a way that the business and project stakeholders get the message. Sequential planning techniques such as critical path analysis won’t work in agile, but stakeholders keep asking for an indication of the progress so far, the work that remains, the bottlenecks and dependencies.

Last year there was an urgent need in my project for a clear status report. Therefor we introduced, the subway map. Subway map reports are derived from the London tube map.

On 3o October 2014 I will be giving a 45-minute interactive workshop, where I explain the idea behind subway mapping. But, don’t lean back to comfortably; I’ll put you to work as well. Based on a case, you’ll be invited to draw your own progress report.
