    At times we have great product ideas but the biggest barrier to entry lies in answering few questions such as:

    - How do I define and validate Problem hypothesis, Solution hypothesis and Underlying assumptions?

    - How do I quickly setup a platform for people to register their interest?

    - What will keep the potential customers engaged, excited until the first release (or beta) is out?

    - How do I get feedback from the early adopters?

    - And eventually when I have answers to some of these questions, how do I make a decision to persevere or pivot?

    If you've faced a challenge while answering any of these questions while building/validating your product idea, this session is for you. We'll look at tools and techniques to validate the product hypothesis early-on without spending months or fortunes. We'll also look at a case study to highlight how some of these tools, techniques helped us validate our product idea.

    Ever watched a pair of cooks on Master Chef working in teams, an open kitchen in a restaurant or Gordon Ramsay yelling across the kitchen at his team of chefs?

    Ring a bell? Doesn't it remind you of your project team? Or if you're a foodie like me, of the similarities between a software project, your team and a Gourmet kitchen? Is there something we can learn from them?

    This talk is an attempt to draw such a comparison highlighting how our teams and a bunch of chefs in a restaurant kitchen function to whip up something so delectable that our customers want to come back for seconds.

    Agile software development has proven to be more successful than traditional methods. However there are many Agile methodologies (Scrum, Kanban, Lean, XP). It is difficult to make a right choice.
    Do you what to know the differences between Scrum and Lean? Perhaps you struggle with your existing Scrum implementation and looking for a better methodology. So did I. I spent many hours looking for continuous improvement beyond Retrospectives and Sprint Reviews. And I found my answer in applying Lean Principles.
    This session will help you to increase your understanding of Lean and Scrum. It will also give you some practical examples of implementing Lean in Scrum teams.

    Agile promotes empiricism and change, yet many practitioners continue to scope out and estimate delivery times and costs for software products and projects.

    Defenders of the art of estimation claim that we need to estimate software projects in order to answer common business and customer questions such as:

    • Should we go ahead with this project? (go/no-go)
    • How much will it cost? (bottom line)
    • When will it be done? (predictability)
    • Should we do project B instead of A? (prioritisation)

    This session challenges participants to flip these questions on their heads and seek alternatives to estimation rituals. It covers the many risks inherent with an estimation culture and demonstrates real, practical alternatives, both at the portfolio and the sprint level.
