We want early feedback to inform foundational or load-bearing decision making before committing to hard/expensive to change design decisions. But we don’t want to start building based on flawed design decisions, the consequences of which are hard/expensive to change when we discover it is faulty. The problem is, how do we balance these two polarities from an either-or to both-and thinking.
In this session, we will explore contexts and tradeoffs in
upfront design versus iterative design. Joining us to share their
perspectives and experiences in a never-ending discussion are:
*Dawn Ahukanna (Design Principal and Front-End Architect)
*Rebecca Wirfs-Brock (Architecture, Design Heuristics, and Agile Practices)
*Diana Montalion (Architecting content systems strategies for enterprise)
*Vladik Khononov (Software Engineer and Cloud Architect) and
*Trond Hjorteland (IT Architect and aspiring sociotechnical systems designer).
We will facilitate using a polarity map from Barry Johnson to guide the conversation and find out the patterns and signs to observe to start managing these polarities for yourselves.
