Blog and Knowledge Base
In the context of my master thesis I have intensively dealt with Design Thinking. On this basis, I am building up a knowledge base here, but I also supplement this with blog posts around the topics that interest me in the field of Agile.
- Interviews as a gateway to customer requirements in agile projectsIn agile projects, the question of the customer’s point of view arises at many points. The involvement of this stakeholder is even an elementary component. One way to generate these insights is through interviews – but there are some hurdles here.
- Short Video-Tutorial about InterviewsMaybe you will enjoy it? Get a short insight, how you could do good interviews with real insights with your customers. As a freelance journalist for over 20 years I collect huge experience in this method. The webinar will last round about 30 min and is introductional; english language!
- Interview: Asking good questionsThe interview is a central method of all agile methods. And not only there. After all, good interviewing brings real insights into the problem and solution space of products and services.
- High/low grid for brainstormingThe classification of creative thoughts, for example after a brainstorming session, into a concrete action set is not so easy. The High/Low-Grid can be of help here, as it helps to set priorities.
- A history, like on WikipediaIn a smart-technologically optimized future society, “Peter’s problem” suddenly becomes a synonym for the fact that an algorithm may not be omniscient after all. In his novel “Qualityland,” author Marc-Uwe Kling tries his hand at a dystopian societal credit yet ends up delivering a consumer product: an excellent read, but still not exactly profound.
