How to make brave decisions to build great products (Manggha)

by Oana Juncu — Funder, Certified LEGO®, Serious Play®, Facilitator at cOemerge

We need reassurance, therefore we plan. In personal life we are sometimes so skeptic about our plans that we cut ourselves from our dreams. In professional life, often the opposite happens: we push ourselves in a state of denial and believe our plan is the only acceptable reality. If a little inner voice tells us the universe may care little about what our view of acceptable reality is, we seek ways to obtain some extra-reassurance via extra-plans on risk management, estimations, tests, and other expertise on everything-that-could-happen-in-the-future.Tasks to reinforce our self-reassurance have a cost. I call it the cost of fear. The workshop offers an experimental space to limit the hidden "cost of fear" embedded in our organisations "mandatory" activities. It is designed to adress testing teams eco-system, and it can be extended to a wider scale. We'll adress questions like: "What are the self-reassuring oriented activities and what is the place of "testing" among them?", "Why do we continue to invest in low value activities?", "How can we sustain organisation's value delivery aligned with people's needs?" and we'll aim to initate a frugal design for a "Cost of Fear Free" Organisation.
