More organisations are employing agile methodologies in the Software Development Lifecycle to continuously provide value to their customers. Helen-Louise and Calvin will use this time to explore one of the key techniques they have been using to drive analysis within a programme at one of the UK’s largest telecommunications providers; Sky. Helen-Louise and Calvin will be joined by their Principal Analyst, Lynn who will share why they introduced Story mapping and why it’s one of their go to techniques.
