  • Customers raise, comment and vote on ideas on the ideas portal.Once these are understood and validated, they get placed into the development stack (Ideascale status = “Under Review”). These stories are agreed as adding value, but no priority is agreed.This stack feeds the smaller current stack (Ideascale Status = “In Progress”) – stories that have made it, and are likely to be worked on in the next month.Developers pick the top story up off this stack, implement it, and check it in for the current release candidate. They then pick up the next story, and the next…Weekly, we review the release candidate and make a decision if it adds any value to the live service. If it does, we roll it out to all customers. If not, we’ll continue adding stories and look the next week…
  • An example of the Aspire teams development board and work area.The development board (left) shows the “Current Stack” whilst, elsewhere we see the brainstorm and stand-up area, where the team gathers each day to discuss yesterdays progress and plan the day ahead.NOTE: This picture was originally inserted in the previous slide after the animation for picking up the next story once the release canditate shows. I’ve included the original slide also.
