Fail Fast Forward: UC Risk Summit 2013

Published on

Mark Twain said, “I have known a great many
troubles, but most of them never happened“.
He could have been describing our fears of
the uncertain that keep us in the status quo.
Learn how Agile gives us the tools to fail fast
forward, learn fast, and rapidly innovate.

  • Can’t drive out imperfect knowledge by pretending and predicting. Can not plan out uncertainty.
  • Trade in the crystal ball for a mirror, asking, What is actually happening?
  • Agiletakes an EA. t imperfect knowledge through learning about reality as it is today.
  • Delays learning. Without getting to done, you can’s assess it’s real value.
  • Multitasking fills the environment with uncertainty, leaving our overactive imaginations to to manf an inexhaustible supply of anxiety.
  • Agile has a great antidote, which is called a Sprint.
  • Places goals in a compact time box, suffocating uncertainty, giving it little room to breathe. Minimizes our risk, maximizes learning, and gives stakeholders actual value delivered soon. Instead of failing big at the end , we fail small often.Fail Fast, Small, Frequently
