Planning for Success in MDD
This session will show you the roadmap for successfully introducing MDD into your organisation, in both concrete and human terms. Concretely measurable factors include the domain selection criteria, cost of getting started, and increased productivity when using. On the human level we will look at selling the idea, building mindshare, keeping momentum going, and managing organisational change. Drawing from our experience over the past fifteen years we will pinpoint the key challenges organisations usually face during MDD adoption, and offer some practical solutions to overcome them.
Participants will practise applying the ideas and ways of approaching and analysing, first to example cases and then to their own situations – past, present or future. Their experience will be reflected back into the approaches during the session, so that together we can form a stronger toolchest to serve real world needs.
