Why Should I Be Concerned with the Availability Heuristic

WATCH: Mary Walshe introduces her track session


In our agile world today we are all moving toward being leaner. Striving for lower cycle times, being effective in an efficient manner. This presents us with a few problems.

How can we create a lean consciousness in our teams?
How can we identify the waste that needs to be removed?

In my team we have found an answer to these questions by understanding the availability heuristic. As a consequence we have improved our approach to quality, testing and the way we work as a delivery team.

This will be an interactive session with lots of discussion addressing the three questions above. Participants will take away a visualisation tool to use in your team to help you on the road to becoming lean.
