Discussion on: Moving from Scrum to Shape up methodology

We start with a Problem Definition. We then work together as a team on a Solution Design. In that stage we discover how much work might be required to "completely" solve the problem. Then we decide how much we want to work on at that point in time, and we set off to do a good job at it.
Is not like a blank check where you get to go down rabbit wholes or things like that. Is more like we don't want to handicap the solution on predefined time boundaries.
If when we are working on a solution we discover things that change our assumptions, we can re-evaluate and decide what to do about it.
