Continuous Discovery: The Path to Learning and Growing
Software development is a process of continuous discovery. When writing software, we create ideas, we try them in code, we learn what works and what doesn’t—and that steers us to a better solution. And sometimes we do this all day long! Woody Zuill says that this same process of continuous discovery works for making improvements for our teams, and in our workplaces and organizations. With continuous discovery we do numerous micro experiments that guide us along the path to a better future. If we follow the values and principles expressed in the Agile Manifesto, which provides us a powerful set of guidelines on our quest for “better,” we can quickly discover what works and what doesn’t—just like in our code. Woody shares how he applies and uses agile thinking in his daily work to encourage continuous discovery, learning, and growth in the teams and organizations with which he’s worked. Let's explore together and discover the path to the future we want to create.
