Limitations as a source of inspiration. System engineering based on the ideas of inclusive design
In the workshop, we will talk about the Inclusive Transformation Framework.
This is a new methodology (or rather, an approach) to the engineering of IT systems, proceeding from the ideas of inclusive design.
The inclusive design was originally created for people with disabilities. For example, for people without one hand, blind, deaf, etc. However, the modern world has shown that each of us is a person with disabilities from time to time. Deaf to others - when we are in headphones, armless - when we are driving, and so on.
At the workshop, we will analyze how to highlight from the context of the product the possible limitations that a person will face when using it. And how to turn these restrictions into product features.
Analyst in the Sale Department
We often talk at the conferences about things like defining a stakeholder on a project, project boundaries, risks etc. But in fact, at the moment when the analyst joins to the project, it's too late to do it. All these works should be proceeded at the stage of preselling, and not at the start of the project. After 8 years of working as an analyst, I went into software selling. But, as they say, you can leave analytics, but the analytics will not leave you. During my speech, I will talk about how we included analytics in the sales process, what came out of it, and why it is generally necessary for analysts themselves.
BDSM for an analyst or talks about sadists, burnout and projects that should be avoided
In my report I will talk about how to quickly identify customers potentially dangerous for a project. About mistakes that analysts make when dealing with difficult customers. About communications that lead to rapid burnout and what projects should be avoided.
