Communicating Value (101 Agility & Tech)

Documentary Track

9:15 AM - 10:15 AM

Communication is the key. We’ve heard that for years, but how do I distill the nuts and bolts, warts and defects, of software development to business users? Simply, you don’t. Come learn the way to speak about software accomplishments in terms of value, not architecture or code. These techniques can help you make clear to your coworkers what has, or needs to be, done by focusing on the one thing we should all be trying to address every single day: value to the business.
