A distinguishing characteristic of a Skills Matter conference is their insistence on ‘quality time’ between experts and delegates alike. These conferences are community events where passionate professionals – that often already know each other virtually – can actually meet and mingle, exchange ideas and appropriate practices, and fortify their ties as well as the ideas they advocate.
In addition to all the folks listed in the conference description, I am also sharing my thoughts on how teams can use business value in their conversations to arrive at several decisions they face on a day to day basis. I cover three types of questions:
- Is it worth it? – which makes use of the Business Value Model that Pollyanna, Todd, Niel, and I wrote about in Stand Back and Deliver
- How much should we build? – which makes use of Feature Injection, originally devised by Chris Matts
- How unique should it be? – which makes use of the Purpose Based Alignment Model, also from Stand Back and Deliver.
