Items necessary for "Minimum Viable Airlines" and your "Minimum Viable Project". These are the items that we agreed we would need before embarking on a project together. Do you have all of these before you begin a project?

Destination - Project Vision
Altitude - Depth of backlog
Location - Progress (working software)
Airspeed - Speed of delivery and speed constraints
Fuel - Stories
Captain or pilot - A leader
Black box - Project data or metrics
Landing gear - A clear and well worn path to prod
Good flight procedures - Working agreements
FAA flight time restrictions for pilots - Sustainable pace
Logbook - Source control
Emergency slide - Good enough or a safe way to end a project on short notice
