Bartosz Juszczak

I work both at the organizational level and team level to promote agility as a way of thinking that leads to achieving a competitive advantage in the market.

I have worked for organizations from various industries.

I have trained in agility 370+ people from different countries and continents. In addition, I conducted workshops for 140+ people during conferences (twice at the largest in Poland devoted to everything agile: AgileByExample) or meetups of local communities.

I truly believe in servant leadership and that management is about finding efficient ways for a business to achieve its goals while maintaining happiness in the workplace. I understand leadership as growing and transforming organizations in terms of the value they deliver, as well as being great places to work.

I see people as the main potential to gain a competitive advantage in the market, even greater than any processes or technologies.

I am convinced that having a good product is not about luck or trying hard enough if you don’t know what’s your vision.

I am a leader of the local community Agile Poznań.

Workshop—Mastering splitting User Stories

Does your team struggle with Sprint Backlog Items spilling over from one Sprint to another?

Are those just too big to fit into the time horizon?

Have you tried to decompose them, but actually others were not convinced to do so?

Maybe you even sliced those into smaller parts, but ended up with non-valuable horizontal components instead of vertical slices?

Have you ever considered the difference between potentially releasable and marketable?

Do not worry. Everyone struggle(d). Some just don't admit it loudly.

Fortunately the toughest step is to start splitting Product Backlog Items. During dojo we will figure out how to do it and what are the benefits of having small (enough) items in your product backlogs.

This workshop is for everyone, both beginners as well as practitioners who want to get inspired on rationale or different patterns to be used.
