Organised by the Agile South Coast, Southampton Chapter, in association with the BCS Hampshire Branch


BYOD - Please Bring Your Own Device, particularly laptops/tablets, as we will use these to display data from the flow systems.

This is a simulation session with teams of up to 8 people managing the flow of value through a team using the well-know Featureban game (by Mike Burrows). How can you visualise the flow, and set policies that maximise the value delivered over the long term? We'll look at key visualisations like scatterplots, Cumulative Flow Diagrams and various run charts, and experiment with policy changes for work selection, work in progress limits, work replenishment and value assessment with Cost of Delay. All that in less than 2 hours? Ambitious yes, but hopefully it will pique your interest to find out more!

The session start off at 6:45 with Pizza and Drinks to ensure we can use the full two hours from 7.00pm - 9.00pm.
Refreshments and venue kindly provided by the Ordnance Survey

This presentation is particularly designed for those with experience of using Agile methods

The Agile South Coast Group meets monthly, every second Tuesday of the month, to discuss topics about the whole Agile Experience within local technical organisations and people in the Southampton / Hampshire area. They use differing Agile techniques to explore the space, and their aim is to spread the best practices and avoid the pitfalls of truly applying Agile methodologies within our professional lives.
