This session presents a reality check on technical communication in an agile environment. We’ll look at several real-life scenarios and the challenges they present to technical writers: 1. “Why can’t agile teams provide proper input for documentation?” 2. “They want me to deliver incomplete documentation?!!” 3. “What about my personas and user research?” 4. “I can’t attend all these meetings of all my agile teams!!?” 5. “How is it agile when my work piles up right before every release??” There are no silver bullets, no ideal recipes for these challenges, but you can address them and still deliver good documentation.
Presentation Highlights: While you can read about doing agile, “living agile” is a different story. This session builds on years of experience serving many different development teams. You will take away practical insights and you will have an opportunity to bring your own questions.
