We‘ve made great strides since adopting Agile and Lean. This is to be applauded. But what if we are just building the wrong thing faster? What if the software solutions we create aren't actually helping our organisations' employees, or solving problems for our customers? How do we know we‘re building the right thing, rather than just building things right?
It was Ackoff who famously said "It is better to do the right thing wrong, than the wrong thing right. The righter we do the wrong thing, the wronger we become!"
It‘s my view, through 20 years of experience, to avoid this risk we need different methods for how we conceive and build software solutions.
I will discuss conventional methods used in organisations to conceive then build software, and then discuss an alternative that is being used in a large Australian corporation based upon Seddon's Vanguard Method. This talk may not be for everyone, as it will challenge everything you think you know.
