Many More Much Smaller Steps

Thursday 20th August 6:20pm Online

Change harvesting gives us a worldview for how we can go about: making changes to our systems, harvesting the value, using that value, rinsing and repeating.

Change-harvesters say we can change systems most effectively when both the content and the approach of our change is human, local, oriented, taken, and iterative. We can apply these ideas to any change we undertake, but they're especially relevant when we're changing code. The most common answer a change-harvester will give to the question, "How can I get more value faster?" is this: "Take many more significantly smaller steps." In this talk, we'll see why that recommendation is so effective.
