Standard

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:

  1. Why are we here?
  2. Create an elevator pitch
  3. Product Box
  4. Create a NOT list
  5. Meet your neighbours
  6. Show the solution
  7. What keeps us up at night
  8. Size it up
  9. Be clear on what’s going to give
  10. 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.
