Does your organization find it hard to determine “the right thing” to build? Agile methods offer few guidelines on how to translate organizational goals and customer needs into the backlog’s content and relative priorities so Agile teams may end up building “the wrong thing right.”
Lean Discovery expands Agile’s “inspect and adapt” feedback loops to systematically identify and validate assumptions about your product’s value proposition, with significant implications for planning and budgeting.
Understand that Agile alone doesn't address how to determine the right thing to build
Learn how to determine and validate feature value using Lean learning loops
Examine the impact of uncertainty about project value on risk management and project planning
