Avanscoperta Retreat #2 – Open Space
Once you pop, you cannot stop… And so that’s how we ended up organising Avanscoperta’s second Retreat in Bologna in January 2019!
We had so much fun the previous year, and the value for us, Avanscoperta, and for our trainers and partners alike, it has been so big that we simply couldn’t let other year pass without gather to learn new stuff, find out and explore new ideas… you know how it works, right? 🙂

Another year, another learning plan, another budget to be approved, another language to learn, another community to meet…

Are you ready? Fasten your seat belts:
It’s time for Avanscoperta’s 2019 Conferences and Events Guide!

How does a product discovery strategy look like for a software development team?
In most of the cases, it’s still a long list of things due by a specific date. The expectation of the managers, even in digital products, is to see these new features going out as soon as possible, without considering too much the motivation behind. So it’s not uncommon to experience a lack of alignment and accountability between people at different stages to a common business goal. Moreover, despite the best intentions of the original planners, the level of details defined in the product strategy is limiting the possibilities for teams to act based on what they learn.
For an organization stuck in this situation, it’s tremendously hard to succeed in a very demanding environment like the digital realm. Continua la lettura di Get the most out of Product Discovery Strategy with EventStorming and Lean Value Tree
Avanscoperta: Ciao Raffaele, ben ritrovato sulle pagine di questo blog! 🙂
Raffaele: Sbagliare una volta è ammissibile. La seconda è un indizio di colpa.
Avanscoperta: Esperto di UX/Design, docente universitario, fondatore di un’azienda di Design, antropologo (o meglio, Hackntropologo!) e, last but not least, trainer Avanscoperta… quale job title descrive meglio ciò che fai?
Raffaele: Quando sento gli altri riferirsi a me con i job title quasi non mi riconosco. Io mi considero un artigiano curioso. Continua la lettura di Cosa si intende con User Research, User Experience e User Interface Design?

Interview with Dan North
Writing an introduction to an interview with Dan North is not an easy task, being one of the very first names that come to anyone’s mind when talking about Agile and, as the saying goes, being one of those people who need no introduction.
Originator of BDD aka Behavior-Driven Development, Dan is a frequent conference speaker and a star of the software development world by all means. Dan will also be in Milan on May 15th-16th for his 2-day workshop “Software Faster”.
Among many other interesting things, in this interview we find out why the principles of the Agile Manifesto are aging well (like a good wine we might say!) and what we can do to make the most out of them in an ever changing world, almost 20 years since they were written for the first time.
