Domain Discovery in a Hurry

Dive into the world of exploring problem domains

Skills You Will Learn

The old days of developers being fed a backlog of work items by "the business" are over. High-performance agile organisations are highly collaborative. Everyone is customer-focused, and everyone must understand the problem domain & the business needs so that everyone can contribute to the direction of the product(s).

This action-packed workshop is full of hands-on activities that teach software developers and everyone else how to understand their problem domain, their organisation's goals, and to think from the perspective of their customers.

You will learn:

  • what are business models, and how software developers who understand business models are more effective
  • how to identify and visualise your organisation's business model with the Business Model Canvas
  • how to focus on the problem and not the incorrect solution, with impact mapping
  • how to rapidly and effectively explore complex problem domains on a whiteboard
  • how to communicate with non-technical people to understand their world and to help them understand yours

Is This Workshop For You?

You are a software developer, architect or tester who wants to get more involved in helping their organisation to build products that customers will love. Or, you're a product owner, project manager, or business analyst who wants to learn techniques they can use to be more collaborative with software developers.

Pre-Requisites

You've worked in an organisation that produces software for at-least 6 months. This workshop is extremely effective for mixed-group teams of software developers, architects, product owners, testers, scrum masters etc.
