A 60 minute Case Study by:

About this Case Study

You might think you have a good system for making decisions. Maybe you flip a coin, or make a list of pros and cons. These systems might look like they're working well, but they force you into a binary choice.

In this session we'll look at a better system for making decisions. Why are your questions limiting your choices, and why will changing them give you more choice? When you have lots of options, how can you make an informed decision? What more can you do to give your decision the best chance of succeeding?

Make smarter decisions - and use that coin you were going to flip for beer or ice cream!

Maria Scrivener

After starting her career in software development, Maria Scrivener has now taken on the challenge of agile coaching. Her aim? To make it easier for teams to do the good thing, not harder to do the bad thing. All of which takes communication, communication - and more communication. She's keen on lean, she hates process for the sake of process, and she loves good software practice. Oh, and she has no desire to ever tweet anything - she prefers communicating face to face.
