Agile delivery typically focuses on the prioritisation and development of user stories. Often the focus is on developer throughput and misses the overall value proposition of the software from the perspective of the end-user. My talk introduces a user-goal based framework for setting up and managing agile projects for success. It introduces an approach to Goal-Driven Development that allows stakeholders/Product Owners to take a user-centered approach to delivery from requirements capture, through planning and into development to deliver software that delights the user.
A Few Of The Key Concepts From The Talk:
Setting-Up Projects For Success
Minimal Viable Product
User-Test Driven Development
Helping Teams Get Beyond "Good Enough"
