Jeff Patton was a guest speaker at Open Charity, an event at the Cancer Research UK in London on 8 February 2018. The talk is focused on those working in the non-profit industry.
“Thud” is the sound a bowling ball makes when dropped onto damp earth. But it’s also the sound that most of our software makes when it hits the market. We’re great at celebrating our wild successes and finding people to blame for catastrophic failures.
This talk is about how we spend most of our work trying to figure out which we have on our hands: a success or a failure. Jeff will share stories of how we use discovery work to identify when we’ve got a “thud” on our hands. And, how the hardest thing to do is recognize and let go of our thuds.
