Scrum Workshop at tekom Conference 2012

In one of our longtime projects, we supported the optimization of development processes and successfully introduced the agile development method Scrum. This project inspired my colleague Anne Hoffmann and me (the co-referee) to submit a workshop for the tekom-Jahrestagung 2012 in Wiesbaden. The topic will be “Karteikarten und Bierdeckel: User Stories für Dokumentation und Entwicklung” (Translation: “File cards and beer coasters: User stories for documentation and development”).

 

Finally, we are happy to announce that our workshop has been accepted. This gives us the possibility to share our experiences and findings from the project with other technical writers and people interested in the topic!

The basic structure of the workshop is already fixed: We will concentrate on agile requirements engineering and guide the group through a step by step business game. In the business game, the workshop participants will collect a product’s requirements and work out suitable user stories. These user stories will be used to extract documentation-specific tasks.

Right now, we are working on the detailed structure of the workshop. We already collected a number of interesting example products that will make the workshop entertaining and memorable for each participant. Workshop language will be German. We would be pleased to meet you at our workshop in October 2012!
