Answering Questions with Stories

new-thinking 4 February 2016 Vicky Price

Dr Alistair Cockburn, one of the original creators of the Manifesto for Agile Software Development, was at the ASB Cube in Auckland last Wednesday evening (3 February) for a presentation and Q&A session.

At this fascinating and lively event that attracted 150+ invitees, Alistair used stories to answer questions in often unusual ways that helped give context and value that might otherwise be hidden in traditional responses. Alistair, voted one of the ‘The All-Time Top 150 i-Technology Heroes’ in 2007, is great to listen to and learn from.

If you couldn’t attend the event, here's a video of the full session.
