Lean Coffee: Defer Commitment / Postponer decisiones

El pasado lunes  24/04/2023 tuve el placer de poder colaborar en un Lean Coffee sobre uno de los principios Lean que más me interesan y que creo que menos gente pone en práctica: Defer Commitment.

Gracias a todos los participantes creo que quedo una sesión muy interesante y que espero que tenga continuidad en alguna otra sesión futura.

Gracias a todas las comunidades de Software Crafters que quisieron colaborar con la iniciativa:

Aquí teneís un hilo con algunas de las preguntas y respuestas que se dejaron en el panel:
