Enabling the Team
We need to shift from telling teams what to build (outputs) to telling teams what to achieve (outcomes). This aligns the team in the right direction without restricting them to a single path.
A dedicated product team is required to ensure accountability for the assigned outcomes. This requires T-shaped skills to cover all roles within a team.
Understand the Customer
Research the real customer needs and find the intersection between the customers problems that need to be solved and the current business objectives.
Everyone on the team needs to understand the business and customer needs. This means that everyone on the team needs to get involved in customer research.
From Project to Product
Help the team to adopt new practices and approaches which enable more effective, efficient, collaborative and sustainable work.
Waterfall processes tie people to their initial assumptions. Teams responsible for outcomes need to adjust as they deliver.
