Hypotheses Validation

The Test Card is a simple but powerful tool giving a formal shape to hypotheses testing. During my talk I will present the technique, comment on its pros and cons and give a couple of examples of how to use it in agile product development and for continuous process improvement.

Workshop— Hypotheses Validation

Hypotheses and their validation are present in the heart of the Lean Startup framework but should be used in a far broader context of any agile product development.
The Test Card is a simple but powerful tool giving a formal shape to hypotheses testing. It can be used to support validated learning using MVP (Lean Startup context), to help the Product Owner order the Product Backlog (Scrum context), or even to assess ideas for process improvement (retrospective context).
During my workshop we will:
- learn what hypotheses are (and what they are not),
- practise formulating hypotheses correctly,
- use the Test Card technique to validate hypotheses in the above three contexts,
- discuss common mistakes made while using the Test Card.
