Agile Yorkshire Talk 12th May 2015

I gave a talk at Agile Yorkshire this evening – on the general theme of “how to maximise the amount of work not done”. Here’s what I covered:

  • There’s no such thing as a requirement (so always challenge)
  • The importance of prioritization (especially trimming the tail of the 80:20 curve)
  • Feature splitting (including de-prioritizing the low value bits)
  • Options Engineering (including the cheap option and the “do nothing” option)

For anyone that’s interested, here’s a copy of the slides:

Thanks to everyone who attended and especially to Matt for the pint!
