Part of the Squads: working Agile within Thomas Cook

WED 13:15 - 13:45

This is a 2019 presentation

Agile. Scrum. Squads. International. Just a couple of buzzwords that describe how we work at Thomas Cook. For the websites and apps, Thomas Cook has worked Scrum for a while now, using Product Owners, Scrum masters and Development Teams. By the time I started as a UX Researcher within Thomas Cook, I was placed to work in several self-sufficient Squads - including CRO, Analysts, UX Designers and Researchers, and business stakeholders. I did have some experience working in Scrum but Squads were new to me - as they were new to Thomas Cook. Both me and the company are learning as we go, adapting wherever needed and not afraid to try out new things. Are we there yet? Probably not. Could you leave this presentation with some insights and new ideas? Yes!
