Creating better solutions through incremental change

Day:  Wednesday, 25. august 2010
Time:  16:00-17:00
45 minutes (+15 minutes Q&A)



When Rasmus Frey was 7 years old, his parents took him to the largest buffet in the world, at the CircusCircus Hotel in Las Vegas. Confronted with the overwhelming abundance of the table, Mr. Frey was confused. This session is about what happens when you try to serve everything at once: You go to bed hungry.

We’ll talk about how we can create improvements through an incremental approach, one step at a time. These days - Drupal being the cat’s pyjamas and all - small studios such as ours suddenly have the capacity to provide large scale enterprise solutions. This presents a shift in the way that we work with our clients, developers, and sub-contractors. One night stands, it turns out, just aren't as satisfying as long term relationships.

Changing our approach presents us with numerous challenges (resource management, maintaining the big picture of both strategy and development), improvements (avoiding scope creep, creating better solutions), and possibilities (true collaboration with your client).

On a more practical level, we'll show you how we apply the incremental design and development in our day-to-day business through concrete examples of long term collaboration with our clients.

Co-presenter is Martin Elneff from Ping Pong Design, @elneff
