Paper Abstract

This set of Lessons Learned concentrates on four key messages. There are a thousand stories that go along with these messages, but please understand they are partially configured stories to make sure that the points are understood. In going from a technology to a product some of the key messages are: ● Know where you're going ● Go fast ● Stay nimble because change is okay ● And no matter what you do, no matter how much you plan, surprises never stop Again, the events that I describe are an edited work, creatively augmented, and may not reflect the versions of actual events. Likewise, the photographs are representative and may or may not depict actual events. I think that will protect those involved.
