Lynne Johnson & Susan Engel present their Agile On The Beach session entitled “Project Discovery and Liftoff with Agile Chartering”.
Building digital products is a complex process and requires effective requirements engineering and teamwork.
An effective Discovery Phase helps build a shared understanding of the problem space, user and business requirements and the desired outcomes, as well as all constraints, dependencies, project context, the product vision, MVP and roadmap.
In order to effectively carry out a successful Discovery and product visioning, we need cross-functional teams to come together and collaborate in a fast-paced and iterative way. One of the methods that enables great collaboration is the project Liftoff with Agile Chartering.
Agile Chartering is the opportunity for the project community to gather together and draft the project charter. Too many teams are using retrospectives for repairing misunderstandings. Effective Team chartering can avert misunderstandings and provides everyone with a common understanding and shared ownership of a project from the outset.
During the session Lynne and Susan share their experiences of Agile Discovery, sharing inspiration with the different activities and our favourite tools for a successful Discovery phase as well as sharing how to lift off a project with what we think is our secret weapon, Agile Chartering. Agile Discovery and Agile Chartering help achieve successful outcomes.
