Visualising your way to better problem solving
Have you ever been in that meeting where everyone goes on and on about something, and you walk out of the meeting realising that nothing has been decided and no one knows what to do? Now we need another meeting.
Problem-solving is one of the biggest parts of our jobs as creators and testers of products. Effective techniques to visualise the problems, solutions and discussions can enable us to do this better and to be more productive in meetings and in general.
Join us for a lively and interactive session, where we will have a look at some of the problems faced by teams and organisations and present techniques for creating visibility for more collaborative and effective problem-solving. Together, we will use these techniques to unpack some of the real problems experienced in the room.
Please note the later finish time this month. The speaker slot will be a full 90 minutes so that we can enjoy the full value of this workshop.
About the speaker:
Barry has worked for the better part of his career in the banking industry with many different and diverse people and teams across various disciplines and in various roles. His passion for working with people has grown over the years and when he was given the opportunity to work with an Agile team as a Product Owner in 2013 he found a whole new world that he wished he’d discovered years earlier.
He has worked closely with the Scrum User Group of South Africa, is part of organising the local Scrum Gathering and has spoken at the gathering and local meetups. Barry uses the learning from workshops such as Coaching Beyond the Team with Esther Derby and Don Gray, daily as an Agile coach working with various organisations on a team and organisation level.
He will be giving this workshop at three conferences in the USA during May so any feedback about the workshop will help to make it better for those conferences.
