Expectations Engineering is establishing flow in your development projects

 

What if you had the info you need, when you need it?

That would obviously be nice, but it is always tricky. You can not know everything up front. But a lot of annoying rework is due to things you actually could have known. In fact it is so much rework, that trying to avoid it gave birth to Expectations Engineering – all the things that can be done to to ensure that you have the information you need when you need it to maintain a nice flow in your work. 

This means minimizing:

  • Waiting for information that blocks your work.
  • Ineffective meetings
  • Working on the wrong assumptions
  • Annoying rework

 

Want more flow?

You can do a lot for the flow, if you are aware and prepared, and that is exactly the kind of professionalism that Whitebox Expectations will help you with. It is surprisingly complicated because many stakeholders have many expectations for the new solution. Managing all the expectations are complex so you need structure to support you. But the good news is that all the practices are not surprising and most are straight forward. In fact you have practiced most of them but did not get the full potential from it. 

Expectations Engineering establish a new organizational professionalism which focus on a smooth development process. EE is a holistic paradigm, because it reframe all the best from Requirements Engineering, Risk Management, Configuration Management, Quality  and the Testing disciplines around all the stakeholder’s expectations to the solution.

The weakest link

Two observations from 30 years of service points out the weakest link in the value chain that creates business based on new products or solutions.

1. While the industry has excelled fantastic in advanced technical engineering, the engineering of the expectations to the solution has hardly developed at all!

2. While the industry has clearly recognized “poor requirements” as being the main source of problems, there is still no coherent training available!

Establishing the correct expectations to the solutions is surprisingly difficult and most quality costs can be traced to this. It takes a company trained in expectations engineering to get it right.
