We've all experienced the tension that occurs between designers, product managers, and engineers during release time. Scope creep is one key culprit, but another one that isn't often talked about amongst teams is when and how to handoff specs, designs, and code. In this webcast Poornima Vijayashanker, formerly founding engineer at Mint.com, and currently Founder of two startups BizeeBee and Femgineer will talk about:
* How to setup a process for handoffs that is flexible.
* How to measure the success of the process and refine it over time.
* How to coordinate with teams outside of product and engineering in order to meet business goals.
