Management 3.0. &

Tech innovation sprints

I have developed a new methodology for agile definition of highly complex projects / products such as technologies, software and global digital transformation projects

 

Define & develop projects, faster. Close deals, create products and develop business models more efficiently. 

 

New methodology: Innovation Tech Sprints

 

Agile definition and implementation of highly complex projects: 

My method accelerates the definition and development of projects by reducing the sales closure time and increasing the conversion of projects.

Designed either for companies who need to define or especially for companies which need that definition to close deals & sales.

HOW DID TECH INNOVATION SPRINTS CHANGE MY DAY TO DAY?  

 After seeing that we all encounter the same common problem when it comes to managing teams, projects and sales. 

I started adapting several agile methods  and combining them until I found my personal approach which helps in sales, makes possible to develop ideas & products faster.

Eli Bernal – Don’t stop until you are proud of it  

Overview:

1. Understand new technologies
2. Define goals &challenges
3. Validate with experts which technologies fit better
4. Prototype the MVP
5. Develop a backlog and estimate costs
6. Test and decide if its worth it for a real implementation.

Digital transformation, developing technology and complex softwares often lead to long periods of delay, defining requirements, deciding, agreeing and starting. This methodology aim to reduce the risk and delays, working on improving the management practices, previous definition and agile development of implementations and kick offs.

The 5 steps of the framework are:

1. Understand & define goals, & sketch solutions

 

2. Expert validation of technologies/ solutions

 

3. Prototyping the MPV (& its features)

4. MVP backlog & Stories / Cost estimation

5Test & determine if implementation is viable for kick off

Based on the main frameworks of the methodologies below: 

 

Understanding possibilities of new technologies with expert validation. Design Sprints help to sketch and prototype solutions quickly. We will use scrum to develop your MVP Backlog and estimate the cost.  I will help you and teach you how to drive a startup-how to steer, when to turn, when to persevere-and grow a business with maximum acceleration. Lean Startup provides a scientific approach to creating and managing startups and get the desired product to customers’ hands faster.

Agile & Scrum | Software development

Overview:
Agile methods or Agile processes refers to a group of software development methodologies based on iterative development, where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing cross-functional teams,  leadership philosophy that encourages teamwork, self-organization, a set of engineering best practices to allow delivery of high-quality software, and a business approach that aligns development with customer needs and company goals. Scrum is a subset of Agile. It is a process framework for agile development, is a particular set of practices and roles that must be followed in order for a process to be consistent with the framework. It’s the most used one.  Jeff Sutherland. 

Management 3.0. | High performing teams

Management 3.0, Jurgen Appelo
Overview:

Management 3.0 is a movement of innovation, leadership and management. Management 3.0 is redefining the definition of leadership with management as a group responsibility. It’s about working together to find the most efficient way for a business to achieve its goals while maintaining the happiness of workers as a priority. Management 3.0 is a global management revolution that brings together thousands of project managers, mid-level managers, CEOs and entrepreneurs, developing solutions together, using games to encourage employee feedback and team collaboration.

Google Design Sprints | Testing Concepts

Google Design Sprints
Overview:

The sprint is a five-day process for answering critical business questions through design, prototyping and testing ideas with customers. Developed at GV, it’s a “greatest hits” of business strategy, innovation, behavior science, design thinking, and more. The sprint gives teams a shortcut to learning without building and launching. Five-phased framework that helps answer critical business questions through rapid prototyping and user testing.  The Google design sprint framework was created in 2010 by Google, taking methods from other disciplines. Tested by: Spotify, Airbnb, Harry Potter and many more. 

Design Thinking | Concept Creation

Overview:

Design-thinking firms stand apart in their willingness to engage in the task of continuously redesigning their business…to create advances in both innovation and efficiency—the combination that produces the most powerful competitive edge.” Apple, Coca-Cola, IBM, Nike, Procter & Gamble and Whirlpool have outperformed the S&P 500 over the past 10 years by an extraordinary 219%, according to a 2014 assessment by the Design Management Institute.

Lean startup | Agile business

Overview:

 Lean Startup methodology has as a premise that every startup is a grand experiment that attempts to answer a question. The question is not “Can this product be built?” Instead, the questions are “Should this product be built?” and “Can we build a sustainable business around this set of products and services?” This experiment is more than just theoretical inquiry; it is a first product. If it is successful, it allows a manager to get started with his or her campaign: enlisting early adopters, adding employees to each further experiment or iteration, and eventually starting to build a product. 

Customer Development | Approach

Overview:

Customer development is a four-step framework, originally identified by Steve Blank (Silicon Valley) to discover and validate that you have identified a need(s) that customers have, built the right product to satisfy that customer’s need(s), tested the correct methods for acquiring and converting customers, and deployed the right resources in the organization to meet the demand for the product. The framework provides a way to use a scientific approach to validate assumptions about your product and business.

I have selected two similar methodologies and developed a method for a quick check.
