Idea approved, now what’s next? Part II

Continuous Exploration (CE) begins!

We enter the Lean-Agile requirements for the SAFe Program.

Let’s start with the vision — the big picture if you will.

Write it down.

In the ‘vision document’ we need to describe and communicate the strategic intent of the program and answer key questions: 1) the ‘why’ — why are we building this product, system, or application? ; 2) the ‘how’ — via which features to build and benefits it will provide to ‘whom?’ … and the system qualities it will have (scalability, reliability, performance, etc.); 3) the ‘what’ — what is the problem that it will solve? This will compel people to buy in to that vision!

Craft the vision like Simon Sinek’s circle… check it out!
