The magic of timeboxing

Imagine you get a daunting task which is most likely impossible to finish looking at the deadline you have. This is the reality I got myself into a few months ago. Three weeks, inexperienced team and a humongous challenge, challenge I have never faced before. This is the situation when you either run away or look for new ways of acting. My rescue was time-boxing. In my presentation I would like to share how we used this tool to design three alternative architectural concepts for a building of a 140 m length and 6 stores. Architecture is not software, I know. But I strongly believe that our lesson could be an inspiration to any professional working on a task that is big, hairy and well... rather undefined.
