About This Workshop

You're heard the term Agile, but what does it really mean and how does it all work? In the first half of the class we'll go over Agile fundamentals. This includes the guiding philosophy, the "rituals", and how to get a team up and running using Agile principals. The second half of the class will focus on the product owner role within Agile. Specifically we focus on how to write good user stories. This will be hands on and you'll get plenty of practice writing user stories that can be given to development. We'll end the class by breaking into teams and running a retrospective. Expect to walk out of class with ideas that you can bring to your own team on Monday.

About the Instructor

Co-Founder + Product Lead ,
Sprouts Tech

I'm a seasoned product manager launching products in both consumer & enterprise environments. I am the co-founder and product lead of Sprouts Tech, a SF-based software solutions company that helps organizations bring their ideas to market. Before starting Sprouts, I worked at One Kings Lane, on a variety of initiatives including launching Hunter's Alley - a resale marketplace for the home. I've been working to build better technology and user experiences for over 15 years. I've worked across many sectors including e-commerce, marketplaces, biotech, and ERP systems. I have a B.S. in Information and Decision Systems from Carnegie Mellon University. When I’m not dancing to “Push It” with the engineers to celebrate a feature release, you can find me relaxing by the beach.
