How to take an experimental approach to product development through applying lean/agile principles
Large organizations often struggle to leverage software to create innovative products. A number of organizational factors conspire to create obstacles to moving fast at scale, including culture, governance, and financial management, and the application of portfolio and program management strategies that do not take advantage of the unique characteristics of software.
The first half of the day sees the group divided into teams, each of which will build a product in three hours. In the afternoon, we build on the lessons from the morning by discussing how to take a lean/agile approach to developing new products and running large scale programs of work, and how to grow a culture that enables organizations to turn software into a competitive advantage.
