An Adventures with Agile Meetup in London at the Rainmaking Loft

In the complex domain, cause and effect are only correlated in retrospect, and we cannot predict outcomes.

We can see them and understand them in retrospect, but the complex domain is the domain of discovery and innovation.

Expect the unexpected!

Because of this, whatever we do in this space must be safe-to-fail. In this talk, we look at some different thinking tools which can help us to create these experiments, or probes... and to help us spot when we're not doing so and probably should!
