David J. Bland Uses LeanUX and Design Thinking to Map Team Assumptions at Agile2016

David J. Bland’s session “Introduction to Assumption Mapping” walked participants through how to “facilitate a conversation with your team and enable them to focus on what matters”. Some of the questions the team can tackle:

  1. Does anybody want this?
  2. Do we have any viability risks?
  3. Can we feasibly built it?

Then the team maps the answers. The goal is to elucidate the gaps in understanding of the problem space and the associated risks. Assumption mapping allows you to clear the air so they can talk about the problem openly and decide where to focus their efforts.
