"the risky search for a viable return on a viable investment"- Kent Beck

What we have to do in Explore is to solve the incertitude about WHAT and HOW:

  • What we build is useful to potential customers and is required by the market?

We will have to experiment and validate our experiments from technical and business points of view. Here an example that suits the development of a complex product:

 Other options

  • A hybrid approach could be used; after we have advanced with the exploration part we can also use some "normal" development lifecycles. Most likely, a significant look ahead will be not feasible, so Lean life-cycle (Kanban-like style) may be a good approach.
  • For small, low complexity, low incertitude products, Agile Basic could be an option
