      For people in the Bay Area or keen travellers the following course may
      be of interest - although not strictly on Agile usability Mary speaks
      a lot about defining how to get maximum business value and I've found
      her ideas have been very helpful at work when deciding what features
      should go into a product:

      Mary Poppendieck, author of Lean Software Development: An Agile
      Toolkit is running a 2 day course in San Jose on November the 8th and

      principles she's spent decades honing at innovative companies such as
      3M you will learn how to:

      * Identify the 20% of software development effort that delivers 80% of
      the value
