Reading: Why You Need a Definition of Ready w/ Dave Nicolette

Definition of Ready

This episode of SoundNotes focuses on Definition of Ready. A few weeks ago, Dave Nicolette created a post in Field Notes that was the result of a current debate in the Agile community about whether having a Definition of Ready helps, or harms our ability to deliver value for the customer.

The episode begins with Dave Nicolette explaining Definition of Ready—within the context of the LeadingAgile model. After that, he and Dave Prior discuss/debate the the pros and cons of DoR from their respective backgrounds (Developer vs. PM).
