Other aspects such as customer collaboration, documentation, process, and tools were also elaborated by the speaker.
A short interactive session was conducted to let students know how tasks are broken down and carried out in a project. A ‘Curiosity Agile Board’ was created where each question from the students was put in the ‘backlog’ section at the beginning, It was moved to ‘in-progress’ while the question was being answered/addressed and in ‘done’ section after that.
