#6 Agile Lean Leadership – Specifications

When working on assignments with a high content of complexity, getting to a common understanding of "Why", "What" needs to be done "When" for "Who" is not trivial. Traditional specification methods just don't suffice, there are too many misunderstandings, leading to expensive rework or unintended side-effects. Techniques to communicate are taught, user stories, state event tables, story maps, acceptance criteria etc. Meetings and review sessions, how to lead and facilitate those.
