Using easy, low risk experiments to make a better software product and reduce waste

Joanne Molesky (ThoughtWorks)

Short workshop - in English

The biggest risk in software development today is failure to deliver promised value to end users. All too often, software products are based on false assumptions and overbuilt or just don't well for our customers, wasting human energy and other resources.

In this session, Joanne will introduce concepts on how to experiment and get early feedback to reduce the amount of waste in software delivery. This is an introduction to some of the more common low tech methods used within the lean software delivery movement to explore new ideas and decide on which are most likely to deliver value to customers. Included will be methods to determine what constitutes a minimal viable product, validating assumptions with end users and prioritizing work.
