Agile Product Design

Jeff Patton es un consultor independiente, docente y mentor ágil dedicado al diseño y desarrollo holístico de productos de software exitosos.

Ha diseñado y construido software por los últimos 12 años en una amplia variedad de proyectos desde aprovisionamiento de partes de aviones hasta historias médicas electrónicas.  Jeff se enfocó en prácticas ágiles desde que trabajó en un equipo que adoptó Extreme Programming tempranamente en el año 2000. En particular se especializa en la aplicación de técnicas de diseño centradas en el usuario para mejorar los requerimientos, planificación y productos. Algunos de sus escritos más recientes en la materia pueden encontrarse en www.AgileProductDesign.com y en el libro de Alistair Cockburn “Crystal Clear”. Su libro de inminente lanzamiento dentro de la serie Agile Development de Addison-Wesley brinda consejos tácticos para quienes buscan entregar software útil, fácil de usar y valioso.

Jeff trabaja actualmente como consultor independiente, es el fundador y moderador del foro de discusión agile-usability en Yahoo, columnista de StickyMinds.com y de IEEE Software, y ganador del premio Gordon Pask otorgado por la Agile Alliance en 2007 por sus aportes al desarrollo ágil.


James ShoreJames Shore

The Art of Agile

James Shore es uno de los líderes de la comunidad de desarrollo de software ágil. Combina una profunda experiencia técnica con un completo sistema de pensamiento para ayudar a los equipos de desarrollo de todo el mundo a lograr:

  • Alta capacidad: desde el concepto a la entrega en dos semanas o menos.
  • Foco en el Mercado: con énfasis en entregar valor y deleitar a los clientes.
  • Generación de oportunidades: conduciendo experimentos y tomando riesgos controlados.
  • Bajo nivel de defectos: menos de cinco defectos detectados al mes.
  • Costos decrecientes: reduciendo los costos de desarrollo y mantenimiento a través del tiempo.
  • Alegría: miembros del equipo felices, consumidores felices.

James cree que los grandes equipos de desarrollo de software entregan consistentemente éxito en el mercado, en la calidad técnica y en el ámbito personal para los miembros del equipo y sus consumidores.

James declaró: “Mi trabajo hace foco en los factores de éxito. Enseño a los equipos como trabajar muy cerca de los expertos del negocio y como responder creativa y efectivamente a los cambios del mercado. Trabajo con los gerentes para cambiar la forma en que los equipos se estructuran, ampliando la comunicación interna y externa, y mejorando el planeamiento táctico y estratégico. En el nivel técnico, ayudo a los equipos a mejorar sus prácticas de estimación, construcción, prueba y codificación.

James adoptó el desarrollo ágil tempranamente y continúa liderando enseñando, escribiendo y brindando consultoría sobre este estilo de desarrollo. Fue una de las 10 primeras personas en firmar el Manifiesto Agil en 2001 y en 2005 fue el receptor inaugural del prestigioso premio Gordon Pask por sus aportes a las prácticas ágiles. Es un orador popular sobre estos temas y ha aparecido en muchas publicaciones de la industria incluyendo IEEE Software, SD Times, y Better Software. Su trabajo es referenciado frecuentemente en la prensa y su blog  Art of Agile está frecuentemente entre los primeros veinte recomendados en AgileDaily. También es co-autor de The Art Of Agile Development (O’Reilly, 2007).
