Recently I read the “Agile Samurai” a great introduction to Agile software development.
The first part of the book talks about an artefact called the “Inception Deck”, a number of cards or powerpoint presentation that is used to help understand and scope a software project.
The inception deck elaborates on:
- Why are we here?
- Create an elevator pitch
- Product Box
- Create a NOT list
- Meet your neighbours
- Show the solution
- What keeps us up at night
- Size it up
- Be clear on what’s going to give
- Show what it’s going to take
I couldn’t find a powerpoint template to start me off, so I created one for anyone who is interested. It’s pretty basic, but it’s nice to start somewhere.
