Priya Patra “Incorporating Non-functional Requirements in your user story with Story Cubes”
The non-functional requirements, like security, usability, or regulatory needs are often part of the definition of done. Non-functional requirements are not optional, yet many a times these are missed the common reason being “Everybody knows it’. What if we could use leverage games to uncover these non-functional requirements and explicitly define them? What if we could make this entire activity fun rather than a stressful exercise?

Alison Gitelson “Increasing our Agility Quotient”
An Agile approach is characterized by short iterations, frequent reassessment, and adaptation. For this to be an effective way of working there is an assumption that human beings are adaptable, and at ease with change and disruption. Are we? By nature, some people are very adaptive, however many aren’t. That’s okay because we can increase our adaptive skills and fitness just as we do for sport and other activities. A bonus of getting fit in this way is also increasing our innovation skills, self-confidence, and resilience. In this workshop we’ll have fun doing a few activities that increase our agility quotient, and consider how best we can use this in our workplaces.

Grace Johnson “Building the Global Agile Community of practice”
The Agile 20 Reflect festival was about New Voices and the Community! People, and our collective humanity. The festival was not just marking and celebrating the 20th anniversary of the manifesto but also the role Agile plays more broadly in our lives and the roles we all play in each other’s. During this talk we will examine the level of situational awareness that was brought to these new voices, why it matters and whether we can anticipate and exploit the current conferences with these new voices. We will explore how these voices will help shape our new ways of working in the pandemic and how we can promote these new voices in our Community.
