Short iterations (as in Scrum / XP) or even continuous flow (as in Lean / Kanban) are an essential part of Agile planning. And yet thereâ€™s rarely much discussion of how these short iterations can actually be accomplished. Teams struggle with finding time to understand requirements, finish testing, and perform adequate design. They often have trouble getting work to â€œdone doneâ€ and ready to release as a result. This session reveals the secret sauce of Agile development: simultaneous phases. Come experience how simultaneous phases allow you to avoid hacks like â€œrequirements iterations,â€ â€œtesting iterations,â€ or â€œrefactoring stories,â€ and make short iterations and continuous flow possible.
