Lunch and Learn Series | Technique Boutique: Lightweight Documentation - Heavyweight Benefits


Documentation is often a dirty word. “I’ll do it later”. But there is no later. It doesn’t get done and is a major contributor to technical debt and kills agility. This session will show how to leverage automated documentation and to create reusable documentation that supports continuous improvement and agility.

In our Technique Boutique session, we will explore lightweight documentation - a common technique used in agile approaches.

Learning Objectives:

  • Minimum documentation
  • Why it accelerates change
  • Building for reuse and multiple stakeholders

About our facilitator, Ian Gotts:

A person wearing glassesDescription automatically generated with low confidence Ian’s first role in Accenture back in 1986 was business analyst process mapping an ERP system for a defence contractor. After a long career in Accenture, he founded a process mapping software company. He grew it from a bedroom in a fishing village in the UK to a global company with Fortune500 customers including Toyota, AstraZeneca, Bank of Montreal and Chevron. After that was acquired, he got the founders back out of retirement to launch Elements.cloud. It is a change intelligence platform which supports the business analysis phases of systems implementation.
