AgileTalks#27 Experiences with Agile beyond soft dev homeland & lightning talks


You are invited to the February edition of Agile Talks!

Our first speaker is Lucian Stroie ( - an enthusiastic change agent and passionate software tester.

He strives to improve delivery and quality, on both software and non-software projects by either leading, adoption or working on improving team’s way of working. His preferred path to the goal of improving team’s life and output leans on Agile practices, mainly applying Scrum. In his quest, he’s supported by his software testing work experience, that includes companies from fields like embedded, security, financial services or web-development.

Lucian’s presentation will be
“Experiences with Agile beyond software development homeland”, a session about challenges and options to expand using Scrum or Agile in general in non-software related teams and environments. We will continue the evening with two lightning talks:

- "Stop Task Switching" by Adrian Bolboaca (

Adrian about the talk:
"You can learn why task switching is bad for you and how to plan your day better so that you can be more productive and less tired.
I worked with many teams and most of them say that task switching (multi-tasking is another term, not that correct) is a good and useful way of working."

- "Have you ever tried Moonwalking?" by Alin Pandichi (

Alin about the talk:
"Most people tackle problems in a classic fashion, from left to right. They start from what they have today, blindingly hacking their way toward their goals. There is another way, a counterintuitive one: walking backwards, going from right to left. In other words, starting from the output, from the goals toward the present day. This technique can be applied anywhere, from writing jokes, teaching bio-chemistry, to our most pressing matter: writing software."
