The Agile Inception Deck
What you'll learn
- How to successfully set expectations around their Agile projects
- How to set their Agile projects up for success before they begin
- How to look like a pro when delivering their Agile project
- Basic software project knowledge
Most projects get killed before they even get out of the starting blocks. This is mostly for two reasons:
• They fail to ask the right questions.
• They don’t have the courage to ask the tough ones.
The Agile Inception Deck is a powerful project management expectation setting tool that ensures you get the right people on the bus, headed in the right direction, long before the first line of code ever gets written.
How does it work?
Agile Project Management is great, but the one thing it is silent on is project chartering. It doesn't really give you any guidance on how to set your project up for success before you begin.
That’s why my colleagues at ThoughtWorks created the Agile Inception Deck. Ten exercises you would be crazy not to answer before the start of any Agile project.
