In this video tutorial, learn how experimenting and prototyping are important in agile projects and how to plan for experiments. Agile product owners drive much of what teams experiment and prototype. Angela explains that these decisions are based on risk, value, and what learnings there are to discover to ultimately create the best product possible to meet the goals and needs.
- Have you ever wanted to change something…or improve it after you've had a chance to use it.…Well many times, a prototype or experiment…helps us try out a few ideas, see what works best,…and learn new things.…A prototype or experiment in Agile…does not validate an existing theory.…Instead, it discovers things we did not previously know.…Teams create experiments in order to explore ideas…and gain clarity about which feature is maybe unclear…from a user or technical point-of-view.…
During the planning process, look for items…in the release plan and roadmap…that will need experimentation or prototyping.…Find pieces of the plan that are high risk to user value,…and work to build in experiments to learn more.…An experiment may take up part or all of a sprint,…and it has a specific goal.…It may be to try out some user interface options,…work through complex decision logic…with large amounts of test data,…or maybe try out a new process.…
