Impact Mapping: Making a big impact with software products and projects
Impact Mapping: Making a big impact with software products and projects
Software is everywhere today, but countless software products and projects die a slow death without ever making any impact. The result is a tremendous amount of time and money wasted due to wrong assumptions, lack of focus, poor communication of objectives, lack of understanding and misalignment with overall goals. There has to be a better way to deliver!This handbook is a practical guide to impact mapping, a simple yet incredibly effective method for collaborative strategic planning that helps organisations make an impact with software. Impact mapping helps to create better plans and roadmaps that ensure alignment of business and delivery, and are easily adaptable to change. Impact mapping fits nicely into several current trends in software product management and release planning, including goal-oriented requirements engineering, frequent iterative delivery, agile and lean software methods, lean startup product development cycles, and design thinking.Who is this book for?The primary audience of this book are senior people involved in building software products or delivering software projects, from both business and delivery sides. This includes business sponsors and those whose responsibilities include product ownership, project oversight or portfolio management, architecture, business analysis, quality improvement and assurance and delivery. - Business people assigned to software projects will learn how to communicate their ideas better.- Senior product or project sponsors will learn how to communicate their assumptions more effectively to delivery teams, how to engage delivery teams to make better strategic decisions, and how to manage their project portfolio more effectively.- Delivery teams that are already working under the umbrella of agile or lean delivery methods, and more recently lean startup ideas, will learn how to better focus deliverables and engage business sponsors and users.- Delivery teams moving to agile or lean delivery methods will get ideas on how to address some common issues with scaling these practices, such as creating a big picture view, splitting work into small chunks that still have business value and reporting progress more meaningfully.About the authorGojko Adzic is a strategic software delivery consultant who works with ambitious teams to improve the quality of their software products and processes. Gojko won the 2012 Jolt Award for the best book, was voted by peers as the most influential agile testing professional in 2011, and his blog won the UK Agile Award for the best online publication in 2010.

Actionable Metrics Framework in Lean Software Product Development
Actionable Metrics Framework in Lean Software Product Development
The book proposed the actionable metrics framework for full life cycles of Lean product development, from an initial idea to a scaled product (and declined). It covers metrics in both validating business viability of the product as well as development efficiency. The framework was specifically designed for B2C online platforms as well as SaaS applications. However, the ideas of the framework can be applicable in any businesses that are employing or willing to employ Lean methodology in their product development. -Ideas management and selection: Discussed problems and practices in ideas management and selection; proposed metrics framework to select ideas for further investment. Aim of these metrics are to increase chances ideas that best align to business objectives would be considered and selected. -Business model: Discussed traditional approach in business model and Lean canvas; proposed approach in business model which eliminates waste on fictitious projections and ensures the key business aspects are considered before making decisions to invest further on product discovery and development. Business model also provides basic hypotheses for further product development and validation. -Discovery: problem/solution fit validationProvided qualitative and quantitative metrics framework to initially validate if the problem that the product is trying to resolve actually exists; the solutions offered by the product can resolve the problem and desired by prospective customers; the product can deliver and capture values as expected. This is the first minimum investment to validate if the product is desirable and viable before further investment can be made in developing the real product. This metrics framework also helps to understand better about customers and market segment to build better product and business model that can deliver and capture optimal values. -MVP: product/market fit validationDiscussed and proposed actionable metrics framework to validate product/market fit via customer stickiness, revenue and virality on minimum viable product with minimum investment. It provides indicators if product is business viable to invest further and whether it achieves sustainable model for scale. It helps to eliminate unviable product, avoid premature scale which is reported as one of the top reason that fails start-ups. The metrics also suggest actions to optimise profits and growth. -ScaleDiscussed about what should be considered in early scale, challenges on crossing the chasm from early adopters to early majority market and what should be done to have a smooth market transition; Impressed about continuous market validation as well as leveraging historical data earned from previous stages to forecast, define targets and measure for learning purpose. This section additionally discussed metrics in feature prioritisation, development efficiency. These metrics support to achieve the goal of Lean development “deliver the highest value within the shortest time”.
