I ran an interactive, gamestorming session a couple of weeks ago at Skills Matter to help us answer the question of "how much up front design is enough?". It was a lot of fun! Since the session was interactive, there was only a short amount of presentation but the slides are available to view online and the video can be viewed on the Skills Matter website.
More interestingly though are some write-ups of the session and I urge you to go and read the following blog entries if you want to see how we went about answering the question and the answers that we collectively came up with.
A big thank you to everybody that came along and participated, particularly to Paul and Richard for taking the time to write-up the session.
