I enjoyed reading shape up. I have had to introduce it slowly to the team I work on.
Certainly I am breaking some rules here but I started with a “half pitch”. Defining only the problems to be addressed and the scope of the project.
Curious to know if anyone else has done this, prior to jumping into the rough solution space?
PS. I once think I read in shape up where ryan said the best way to articulate a problem is through a customer story. Or something along those lines. I one hundred percent agree with this, and it has been a powerful tool.
