Space engineers who expected their project to deliver at least one year late, managed to deliver one day early instead. How did they do that? Proper requirements were not their problem. They knew how to handle those well. However, they were complaining about impossible deadlines, based on earlier projects expecting to massively overrunning the available budget.
We will show how the Evolutionary Planning Technique allowed them to deliver one day before the deadline, rather than the expected one year late. If you have teams of great software developers, perhaps they can also use the same approach to deliver even better in much less time.
