Event description
A half day experience designed to help you align the team for success. Techniques to allow teams to align on what they are going to deliver.

About this event

The aim of the inception process is to get a collective idea, define an overarching approach and make decisions on what steps will be taken to reach a successful and strategic outcome. Explore the different aspects of a project, the team, releases and time frames with this half day INCEPTION Fundamentals workshop.

What would happen if we approached things in a different way?

The aim of the inception period is to bring the team together to understand the project ahead of starting work. It also acts as an opportunity to review the high level outputs of the discovery stage to ensure that the project is still viable from a cost benefit point of view. Inception usually lasts for approximately 2 weeks, or 10% of the expected project duration - managing this phase in this way can dramatically increase outcomes and quickly highlight value.

This workshop is for:

Product people & designers

Team Leaders & non-IT functions

Anyone who is interested in understanding value outputs and cost benefits.

This workshop will help you answer questions like:

How can we integrate this idea/change into the overall strategy?

What additional changes may be needed in order to achieve our objectives?

How can we reduce uncertainty and risk?

How to deliver maximum ROI?

How to highlight dependencies as well as other non strategic work and critical dates?

How can I align all the ideas within budget and get answers quickly?
