Product Development


Laurie Young, Robert Dempsey and myself had a conversation about product and customer development. Some of the questions that we asked were:

  • Is Scrum the best way of producing software?
  • Are cycles preferred by developers over flow? (e.g. Scrum over Kanban)
  • How do you tackle starting a product?
  • Does learning ever stop?

and many more.

I think the conversation is interesting because it goes over the self-imposed limits of Agile methods like Scrum or Kanban and discusses individual practices that are the best to use in a certain context and because it has an unexpected ending. So, take your time, listen to it, and if you have anything to share with us please do.

A new home for merging ideas about design

It is my strong belief that software design can learn a lot from other design disciplines. I wrote blog posts, a book and did talks on this topic, and it was time to group them all together. These ideas have now a new home: My plan is to add more blog posts there, and to involve other people doing work in this area.
