Scoping Ambiguous Projects

Learn how to divide tasks into manageable chunks that may be finished incrementally while containing risk and ambiguity.

As anyone who has ever tried to complete a large project knows, it can be challenging to stay on track. Scope creep, unexpected obstacles, and changing priorities can all make it difficult to see the finish line.

By breaking the project down into smaller, manageable slices, you can complete the project one step at a time. This approach, known as agile development, involves dividing the project into iterations and working on one slice at a time. As each slice is completed, you can get feedback from stakeholders and make sure that the project is still on track. If you encounter any problems, you can always get help from a mentor or other experienced agile practitioner. By taking an agile approach to projects, you can minimize ambiguity and risk while still making progress towards your goal.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help. If you’re new to agile development, it’s okay to admit that you need help. Seek out a mentor or coach who can help guide you through the process. There’s no shame in admitting that you need assistance; in fact, it’s one of the key principles of agile development!
