Iterative vs Up Front Planning


Iterative vs Up Front Planning: the Marshmellow Challenge

This TED video helps us to think about some questions such as:

  • Why innovative projects usually are best managed in a iterative manner?
  • How does our beliefs and attitude impacts over collaboration in projects?
  • Which should we prioritize: incentives or skills enablement?

The Marshmellow Challenge is an experiment where a group of people collaborate to build the highest structure possible using 20 sticks of spaghetti, 1 yard of sellotape and a block of marshmellow. You can find further visiting its website: http://marshmallowchallenge.com
