AgileThought Virtual Community
Now more than ever, companies around the world are scrambling to acclimate to the new reality we’re all facing: Social distancing and entirely remote workforces. For some, this shift may be less impactful – but for many, this is a daunting behavioral and emotional adjustment.
This is why we introduced our virtual community events: To give attendees a platform to ask questions about the challenges they’re running into.
You are on an agile team, but every now and then you struggle to understand the difference between your roles and the roles of your teammates. How can you clarify the distinctions between them? As a hiring manager, or member of an agile team, recognizing the varying responsibilities of these roles can help ensure success.
What to Expect:
Building upon our previous sessions, this AgileThought Virtual Community forum will give attendees a way to recognize the difference in agile roles, including: Traveler vs. Coach, Project Manager vs. Scrum Master, Product Manager vs. Product Owner, Tester vs. Quality Assurance (QA), and Business Analyst (BA) vs. Product Owner.
We will also record this virtual panel and publish it on our On-demand Webinars for future viewing.
Who Should Attend:
Anyone is welcome to join, but this will be particularly helpful for:
- IT Leaders who want to understand the challenges their teams are facing
- Managers looking for ways to support their direct reports
- Companies looking to hire, or fill, one of these roles
- Anyone looking to understand these roles and make a decision around that understanding
