Many Agile practitioners are comfortable working iteratively in small slices once there's a basic foundation, but they struggle with where to start on a new project, product, or other big idea.

What if Iteration zero didn't need to exist? What if you could work iteratively from the beginning?

Humanizing Work clients have been able to successfully find small, first slices for all kinds of software products, for combined software and hardware systems, and even beyond software in such areas as park construction and office remodeling.

In many cases, projects with apparently significant up-front infrastructure requirements were able to ship a valuable slice to customers after just one or two sprints. Participants in this workshop will learn how to use Richard Lawrence's Feature Mining technique to find early slices of any big idea that provide value, learning, and risk-mitigation.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Use Feature Mining to find an early slice of a big idea to get quick value, learning, and/or risk mitigation

  • Understand how to bring Feature Mining back to your team

  • Explain how different roles (PO, UX, developers, testers, etc.) are critical to effective slicing and how each contributes in Feature Mining

  • Apply the Feature Mining technique when team members are distributed in different locations
