Accepting Uncertainty to Achieve Agility: Learn to Go With What You Know

Software development is too slow.  Why?  

Moving too slow is a symptom.  Some say over planning is the problem.  I say, the underlying problem is how we think.

You are well aware that software product development comes with risks and rewards.  It feels safe to get enough information to understand the schedule and cost estimate within a small margin of error.   However, fear, uncertainty, and doubt slows us down  and can give rise to problematic Risk Management thought processes.

The reality is that the  effort spent finalizing the schedule and cost before software development begins is likely to be a poor use of limited resources for 3 reasons:  (1) Your competition is moving fast.  (2) More time spent in planning is slowing you down and is likely to translate to higher initial costs.  (3) Implementing low value features can dramatically increase future maintenance costs.  

In this session we will discuss changing the way you think to find the courage to begin work at a point much sooner than you have in the past.  Attend and learn how to go with the flow of what you know to deliver software faster.
