In this course, you will learn:
- How Agile improves the management of solution risk and return.
- Accurate, efficient requirements collecting without delusional "perspective taking."
- The Structure Paradox, also known as "How Constraints Drive Creativity and Luck!"
- In complicated systems, test-driven development allows for faster and better solutions.
- Using the Theory of Constraints, target scope to fulfil Performance Objectives.
- The first week of Innovation revisits concepts of capability delivery from technical perspective; asking how do we achieve a project's purpose to innovate? What are the risks and methods to be successful in delivering a defined output under uncertain conditions? Here the Theory of Constraints (TOC) is used to target innovation for maximum impact.
- The second-week dives into the requirements gathering and validation process, and the science behind the most powerful requirement tool, a User Story, and how it forms the basis for Test-Drive Development (TDD).
- The third week looks at how adding constraints to solutioning unleashes creativity, luck, and productivity towards solving hard, uncertain problems.
- The fourth week culminates with the application of the TOC Thinking Processes, User Stories, and Constraints along with the use of the powerful system engineering solutioning techniques (isolation, absorption, acceleration, etc.) and tools like TRIZ.
