  • Military
  • Individual Contributors - isolated with computers
  • not talking about something lofty, but a real shift in the way we look at things
  • Ubiquitous - tools - NOT computers anymore
  • Real problem - desireabilty
  • Must Build Something - Good Engineering
  • How are these people having fun who are supposed to be working?
  • Solution #2 - Templates aren’t going to work
  • At the most basic level this is what we are trying to do
  • Where, when, why
  • Where, when, why
  • Story Board/Key Design - Where, when, why
  • Where, when, why
  • Personas Where, when, why
  • Because after that you have to START
  • Lower levels validate or challenge higher level assumptions
  • Who is there? - product launch people, stakeholders
  • This is the first thing you need - Next you need to live up to promises

    • 3. Design Matters ...Now more than ever

    • 6. As computing technology moves toward mobile devices, we’ve seen the 1990s’ growth in processor speed taper off and product development become less about horsepower [and more] about the overall design of the product. ... a healthier view of human intelligence ... ... that it is reactive, responsive, sensitive, nimble.

      • In general agile is not new. It is collection of good software practices evolved over years of experience.

    • 12. Myths About Agile
      • Agile is Working Without Documentation
        • Documents that add value are created just-in-time
        • Much of the documentation is short-lived
      • One specific methodology
        • It’s an umbrella term for a set of approaches and practices to software development which share common values.
      • A “One Size Fits All” cookbook
        • Every project and team adjusts to fit circumstances, environment, and constraints
        • It’s not an all or nothing proposition
      • Simply iterations
        • Software is developed incrementally, in time-boxed iterations
      • “ Glorified hacking”
        • There is a set of highly disciplined practices, including design which many people skip
      • Working without a plan
        • Adaptive planning aids in delivery of highest value features to the business
        • Planning occurs continually, throughout the project
    • 13. Agile Values - Ingredients for highly productive, happy teams
      • Focus on activities that add value
      • Collaborative
      • Transparent
      • Adaptable
      • Simple
      • User engagement
      • Continuous Improvement

    • 26. Business Objectives   What does success look like from a business perspective? Users  Who are the primary users of this product? User Objectives  Why do users want this product? What do they expect from it? Brand Characteristics  How do we want customers to perceive the brand? Value Propositions   What value does this product offer to the consumer? Key Differentiators   What does this product offer that no one else can? Measures of Success   How will we know we've been successful? Are there any key performance indicators?

      • Storytelling and High level design
      • Visualize the personas - a cheap stock photo (www.fotolia.com) for each and their role. Can be more creative if that's of value (a consumer product may need more, a B-to-B product probably not).
      • Visualize, using the personas pictures, the main idea of what the app does. Tell the story with one or a few slides. Ask: Does everyone on the team agree?
      • For each persona, get every activity they are doing listed. This is important, otherwise can end up designing pieces that don't fit together. This list can jump start the story list.
      • For each persona, identify top goals (persona is successful if they can ________). This is usually very quick to do. The thinking work for 1-4 is best done in a time-boxed workshop with designer or PM leading and the whole team participating. Designer then mocks up a slide deck to present and validate.
      • After master story list is created, visualize the entire master story list. Sketch a deck of drawings that captures all the stories in visual form. The sketches are purely a fast design with everything in it, not a good design. You can only accomplish this with time boxed workshops (usually two or three 3 hour workshops). It always seems like a lot to do, yet when time boxed and everyone is pitching in it can be done. Somebody, like the PM, must serve as time-watcher and keep things moving so the goal is reached.
      • From 5, designer creates and mocks-up core design ideas. If stuck, pair with someone, could be anyone (doesn't have to be another designer).
      • Present the core design ideas in a story deck with context (personas pictures, screens, flows, whatever needed) and get client buy in. This will need to be iterated a few times most likely. This deck sets the stage for detailed design wireframes and specs during iterations.
      • We usually have about two weeks to do this. Steps 1 -5 and part of 6 would be done during inception. The rest of 6 and 7 are done during the first iteration, which requires the first iteration's stories be independent of the core design.
      • If we can't do that in two weeks, we should sell the client on a longer inception if possible. Or, we have to finesse the first two iterations to allow more time for the high level design work.
      • Inception Checklist
      • Have customer fill out startup toolkit before inception
      • Have internal kick off to define project strategy (product design v.s. We are implementers)
      • Make sure to start with a PM, a designer, and a senior developer
      • Pre-schedule workshops, transition meetings, stand-ups (if used)
      • Start visual design in inception - have template of visual design done
      • Educate client on our process
      • Ensure notes and assumptions about stories get into Pivotal
      • Personas
      • High level task flows
      • Cover FURPS+ for cross functional and nonfunctional requirements
      • Select technology and high level architecture
      • Estimate and prioritize story list
      • Create a tentative release/build plan
      • Identify iteration 0 tasks (and start if possible)
      • Set up wiki, pivotal, email groups
      • Create SOW addendum using inception estimates
      • More business strategy conversations
      • Show customer story board in key note of story list to tell the product's story

    • 33. But...Big Designs up Front don’t work either
      • Don’t provide any direct value to product
      • Take too long
      • Are not accurate anyway
      • Foster an anti-change mentality
    • 34. More about Big Designs up Front
      • Are difficult to estimate
      • Are hard to navigate
      • Everyone hates reading them
      • Have to be transformed into something developers can use
    • 35. Inception A short period of hard collaborative work; to better understand project objectives, identify potential users, and define high level functional scope so that size of the project can be roughly estimated and an incremental release strategy can be identified

      • Very visual - centered around tangible models
      • Collaborative and inclusive
      • Time-boxed and rapid
      • Iterative and feedback driven (embracing change)
      • Product & implementation cost focused

      • In battles with the business and technology goals,
      • desirability will almost always win out
      • Makes it clear that product should be “insanely great”
      • Recruits a top design team and protects them from competing goals
      • Willing to spend money, adjust technology processes, all for the goal of highly desirable product
