About the session
Starting new things is hard.
Unknowns are lurking within the various aspects of the problem domain, dependencies and risks, and not least, in how to solve the problem at hand.
Trust has to be built, and relationships, and we have to identify and agree on 'what to do', and more importantly 'how to do it'.
For the teams and organisations I have worked with, Inceptions have become the trusted pattern to kick-off initiatives and set them up for success.
As we know from decades of experience, big-design-up-front, waterfall and long-winded requirements analysis do rarely lead to good results.
Building on many years of experience I will present a framework of how we can run lean inceptions to set teams up for success. This framework is based on lean and agile best practices, and thus increases chances of success by de-risking early, just-in-time analysis and planning for iteration and evolution.
Drawing on various examples I will demonstrate how lean inceptions are run in practice and how they can address the challenges of getting quickly to grips with complex project domains by using a range of lean and agile tools and techniques.
