Re: Customer centric design and Scrum

This will create a little bit of churn in requirements, but it just can't be avoided entirely. It is a cost involved in the process.
To mitigate that cost, the whole team (including the CCD people) should focus on incremental feature construction whenever possible, and validate partial (simple) implementations before committing to the full feature. That way if the user validations indicate change needs or priority changes, the doesn't necessarily have to redo so much stuff.
