This lesson introduces the Shape Up framework, a project planning methodology that emphasizes fixed time and flexible scope.
Traditional project planning often leads to scope creep, a lack of urgency, uneven resource allocation, and a total absence of real-world feedback.
The Shape Up framework flips this on its head by fixing the time and allowing the scope to be flexible.
This approach helps teams focus on what's essential, get user feedback faster, and avoid the pitfalls of traditional project planning.
The example of the FoodFleet app shows how the Shape Up framework can be used to successfully launch a new feature in a timely manner.
