Defer Constraining Commitments

January 23, 2019

In this Scrum Tapas video, Professional Scrum Trainer Chuck Suscheck discusses some ideas that he has learned when building software over the years on how to make decisions on prioritization, especially as they impact architecture and design.  Chuck references the book from Mary and Tom Poppendieck, "Lean Software Development: An Agile Toolkit" and how he learned more about these concepts.  His focus is on how decisions can be made now or postponed for later when you have more information to make the best decisions.  In part, Chuck talks about how with smaller experiments you can gather information to help make the right decisions downstream.
