Join Scrum Atlanta for a special engagement as Alistair Cockburn warms up the crowd with Disciplined Learning and takes some Q&A.
"Disciplined Learning: The Successor to Risk Management"
Disciplined Learning consists of identifying, early and continuously, small experiments and small amounts of deliverable work, to gain what would otherwise be late-arriving bad news, in time to maximize the effectiveness of the product delivered.
It is exciting to find a baseline strategy that applies to projects of different sizes and natures. Disciplined Learning is not for the faint of heart — it requires discipline, inventiveness and constant correction. The payoff is the ability to get a development team working together, discover what is needed in time to delivery it, delivery it early in order to create a self-funding project, and trim the tail at the end to meet inelastic deadlines.
