[B]Here’s my scenario[/B]:
Let’s say you want to adopt a lean UX approach for this new project of yours.
You understood that lean UX proposes a set of iterations from Set a hypothesis => Build ==> Measure ==> Learn ==> iterate (even though I prefer starting with the “Learn” part).
Along your discoveries, you might have to to major pivots. That means that you’re mentally prepared to the idea that your product will probably change a lot to what you currently have in mind.
Now, your managers are asking you to provide them a roadmap and timing estimation. They want to know what you’re going to build, which activities you’re planning to undertake and how much time it’s going to take for each phase.
[B]So my question is the following:[/B]
How could you create a decent roadmap and present it to your managers if you have no idea what you’re going to discover yet? (And the final product might be so different to what you initially expected to build?)
Am I missing/misinterpreting something? How would you tackle that?
Thanks for your thoughts on this!
