Answering Questions with Stories

Added 02-May-2019

Together with Agile in Covent Garden and Adventures with Agile meetups we are proud to host Dr Alistair Cockburn with his fascinating practical story based Q&A session.

-----------------------------------------------
Answering Questions with Stories
----------------------------------------------

Stories answer questions in a wonderful, sometimes roundabout way that permits the inclusion of contextual details left out of straightforward answers. And they are much more fun to listen to.

In this Q&A session, Alistair will solicit questions from the audience and answer them in the somewhat unusual form by telling stories from the hundreds of projects and companies he has seen. Show up with a question or three on any topics you care about, and watch to see what stories will show up to shed light on them. (Caveat: there will be many more questions asked than can be answered in this session, so not all questions will be chosen.)
