This talk is about discovery: the work we do to identify and validate our ideas are worth building, and how we balance that work with the effort to build high quality software.
Before Agile development, just getting working software built was a challenge. Today more and more companies can predictably deliver something. But that something is often still the wrong thing. And, no matter how fast your organization delivers, it never seems to be fast enough.
In contemporary Agile practice we go beyond focusing on just building working software. We include Lean Startup and Design Thinking practice to engage whole teams in understanding customer and user’s challenges, identifying solutions, and validating those solutions are valuable before we invest.
In this talk, Jeff will describe how to balance a continuous, whole team focus, on discovery and delivery.
