Evo in Virgin Projects

Many projects where we start introducing Evo are already running, because often I'm first asked for help when a project is in trouble. We organise an Evo-day to turn the project into an Evo project. The project has already more or less insight in what has to be done, so this can be estimated, prioritised and work-tasks can be defined and planned.

In the case of completely new projects we have the experience that the team members usually hardly know what has te be done and how. At the first Evo-day, the team members cannot define tasks at all, so no estimation and planning seems possible. Still, the goal of any Evo day is that by the end of the day the team knows roughly what to do the coming weeks, and exactly what to do the first week. So there is a potential problem.
