Whether starting a new greenfield product or blowing the dust off an old legacy app, in order to maximize delivered value, you need to be mindful of the first set of stories to deliver.
Together, we will discuss the power of critical technical stories to help you iterate faster, earlier. How do you know your ideas for your new software experience is really delivering value? How do you handle a botched deployment to your customers early in your development? What allows you to fail safely and recover? These questions and more will be addressed as we explore ways to shorten the cycle time of building software, gathering metrics, and incorporating our findings into newly delivered capabilities.
Finally, we'll review how new findings, from recently delivered stories, drive further refinements to Lean Canvas assumptions, invalidate or affirm hypotheses, and provide a catalyst to Lean UX and 'learning loops'.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Understanding the impact of key early infrastructure and technical stories
  • Understand accruing value of game changing DevOps capabilities
  • Comprehend Lean-UX software delivery goals
  • Comprehend the importance of fast, automated feedback loops
  • Realize the need for automated metrics gathering and learning to speed up customer feedback
