Disrespect the backlog: half of everything you know is wrong
"a backlog is not a specification.

It is not a description of a finished product.

Risk-First Software Development
"Scrum, Waterfall, Lean, Prince2: what do they all have in common?

One perspective is that they are individual software methodologies, offering different approaches on how to build software.

However, here, we are going to consider a second perspective: that building software is all about managing risk, and that these methodologies are acknowledgements of this fact, and they differ because they have different ideas about which are the most important risks to manage."

Just Barely Good Enough Models and Documents: An Agile Best Practice
"For some reason people think that JBGE implies that the artifact isn't very good, when in fact nothing could be further from the truth. When you stop and think about it, if an artifact is JBGE then by definition it is at the most effective point that it could possibly be at."

How we design enterprise software
"Inspired by teams at Buzzfeed, Airbnb and Shopify among others, we recently documented our product design workflow. We’re not the first to blog about our workflow but I think it is a useful exercise as it forces us to write it down, share it and critique it."

Running in Circles
"Agile started off as a set of values. Values are subtle and abstract, so as agile spread, what spread wasn’t the values but the practice of working in cycles. Cycles are easy to explain and easy to copy.

People in our industry think they stopped doing waterfall and switched to agile. In reality they just switched to high-frequency waterfall."

The Limits of Prototyping
"Creating prototypes can help you create the right design and ensure that the design is right. Prototyping is a fundamental activity in the design thinking process, and it has even appeared in recent self-help books as a way to experiment with major life decisions.

But I disagree with the notion that “everything can be prototyped, and everything is a prototype.” If we start looking at everything in the world as a bunch of models and treat them as such, we are creating problems downstream for our teams and our products."

We believe in designing in the open. Most of the ideas on this blog will be iterated on over time, some of them will test badly and never make it onto GOV.UK, a few might end up being patterns that we use everywhere.
