Making Agile Work for YOU!

The software development world has taken to Agile in a big way, but many technical communicators are less than enthusiastic about it. It doesn’t have to be that way–there are benefits and advantages for us, too, if we know where to look and how to use them. Whether you work in a startup or a megacorp, at a breakneck pace or something more glacial, you can adapt agile to improve your ability to track your projects, gain control of your tasks, and even leverage developers to review your content.

This presentation provides an insider’s perspective on a successful, real-world, long-term, enterprise-wide agile implementation. We’ll examine agile meetings to see why they are important, what they accomplish, and how to use them to your advantage. We’ll look at what it’s like to be a technical communicator creating documentation in an agile environment and provide suggestions about ways to change agile and agile tools so that they work better for everyone–including you. Along the way we’ll clear up misconceptions, confront problem situations, and provide guidelines for success.
