About this Case Study

A truly minimal MVP is a key part of any successful agile delivery. But getting your customer to agree to a minimal MVP, and your development to stick to it, is always a challenge. In this session I'll run through a successful approach taken while developing a service for applying for permits at Defra.

Whilst working on a service for applying for waste permits, our team used several approaches for visualising the MVP. This helped get agreement from the product owner on reducing the scope of the MVP, as well as helping the team focus all development on that MVP.

This session will give a high level overview of the approach taken to designing gov.uk websites, followed by explaining how the techniques we used helped with developing an MVP for our service. I'll also describe how similar techniques could be used with non gov.uk websites.

Having spent most of my career working as a developer on a variety of agile deliveries, I've moved on first to being a scrum master and more recently a delivery manager at Defra. I'm hugely passionate about teams and making them enjoyable and productive places to be.
