Innovation requires experimentation that allows for the possibility of failure but the whole point of creating a program commitment process is to avoid failure.

How do you as an engineering manager or executive

  1. Reconcile the need or experimentation to drive new capability development with the absolute requirement to meet your commitments to customers, partners, upper management, and other departments.
  2. Leverage a product portfolio to run experiments to minimize risk for future programs?
  3. Sell and deploy new capabilities throughout engineering?

What questions can you as an engineering manager or executive ask to understand the scope of the risk?

Jeff Allison will present lessons learned from working with early adopters in a fast cycle or rapid prototyping approach that anticipates the need for a scalable reliable development process and lays the groundwork for it.
