3 use case aspects or patterns to lean away from when trying to work with your initial domain:

  1. What I call the domain type 'Everyone else in the organization wants your data so give it to us'.
  2. Who is going to fund this? Not having a clear path to exec sponsorship and what the value expected will be is not great.
  3. How do I add this to my priorities - essentially 'great, but that's more work I can't take on.'

And the 4 you should look to lean into:

  1. Find your initial use case that is self-contained in the domain.
  2. Move at the speed of business.
  3. Find a use case that is easy enough with enough return to pay for itself as you also invest in the other aspects.
  4. We will be investing heavily in making your domain better with data.
