Roundtable discussion: Definition of Done for design work in agile teams
Jan Šrůtek will host a discussion around cross-functional ways of working in agile teams. He'll aim to unpack what deliverables are expected of Product/UX/UI Designers and when is the work ready for grooming and estimation by Engineering. We'll also discuss where various organizations sit on the Waterfall – Agile spectrum, and in turn, how it impacts the fidelity and scope of design documentation.
How do roundtable discussions work?
- Every roundtable discussion includes 5 active participants and a moderator to run the discussion.
- Each participant will prepare a question about the chosen topic to discuss. Please come prepared with a question and be prepared to discuss the questions other participants ask.
- The roundtable discussion lasts a total of 40 minutes, including:
o 5 MINUTES: A quick introduction from each participant about who you are and what you do.
o 35 MINUTES: Interactive discussions about each question (7 minutes per question).
- Other conference attendees are welcome to quietly watch the roundtable discussion. There will always be about 15 chairs set up for an audience. We’ll also be live streaming the discussion for attendees who can’t attend in person
Don't worry if you run out of time! Feel free to continue talking with other participants after the official roundtable discussion ends.
