Description

3x Explore/Expand/Extract

You wouldn't play soccer with rugby strategy or apply football strategies to rugby. The rules of each game and the strategy for playing go hand in hand.

Software developers have spent decades searching for the right way to develop software. We are no closer to finding answers to whether we should have estimate the cost of work, refactor, or even collaborate closely.

Kent Beck's 3X model organizes software development into three phases:

  • Explore, where quick experiments are launched to find a growth loop;

  • Expand, focused on removing the barriers to growth;

  • Extract, deriving value from a successful system to fund further growth.

These three phases are superficially similar in that they each involve programming, customers and users. Individually they are as different as soccer, rugby, and football.

This talk will introduce 3X Explore/Expand/Extract, discuss how the phases are different, and present the ultimate challenge: running projects in all three phases at the same time.

About Kent Beck

Kent Beck has been a programmer for 45 years. He pioneered software patterns, test-driven development, the xUnit family of testing frameworks, Extreme Programming, and he is alphabetically the first signatory of the Agile Manifesto. Most recently he spent 7 years coaching engineers at Facebook. Now independent, his focus is storytelling, collaborative development, quantitative studies of software engineering, art, singing and guitar, writing, and proselytizing cheese making. Well, perhaps "focus" is the wrong word.
