Description: The Value of Hypothesis-Driven Development
Compressed feedback loops provide one of the principle benefit of Agile. Scrum has given us the ability to quickly respond to changing business needs and reduce development costs. But lets face it even with Scrum, software development is still expensive. Hypothesis-Driven Development (HDD) lets us conduct quick experiments prior to development to weed out weak ideas prior to committing development effort to them. HDD increases developer/customer interactions, reduces costs, and it gives us an excuse to act like mad scientists!
