Warning - you can still build the wrong product using Agile! In Eric Ries book The Lean Startup, he asks, "What if we found ourselves building something that nobody wanted? In that case, what did it matter if we did it on time and on budget?"

Experiment-Driven Development (EDD) is an emerging Agile approach designed to ensure we always build the right product. Join us to explore how to create a culture of experimentation within your Agile team from defining a product hypothesis, identifying built-in assumptions, running development experiments to prove or disprove our assumptions, capturing validated learnings, and all the while building a minimum viable product! Case studies and the facilitators first-hand product experience using EDD are used to augment the discussion.  Interspersed throughout the talk is a fun project simulation utilizing the EDD principles.

Whether you are new to Agile or a mature "agilista", you will leave the workshop armed with new Experiment-Driven Development techniques that can be applied immediately on your Agile projects.

Conference Committee Note: this topic can be presented in either short form (45 - 60 minutes) or long form (3 - 4 hour workshop).
