Projects hurt teams and products
Waterfall, or agile-fall, is an exercise in avoiding learning while building a product.
Features that fail
Requirements pick up assumptions and biases as they are translated from customers to product teams. That's why 66% of features fail to deliver expected returns.
Slowing over time
Project deadlines encourage teams to cut corners but this introduces tech debt. Left unmanaged, debt can add up to 58% extra overhead on new projects.
Scrum or SAFe are easy to adopt because they don't require difficult organisational changes. The problem is they don't deliver the expected benefits.
Damaging for people
Hard work doesn't cause stress, lack of control does. Enforcing guesstimates without enforcing the underlying assumptions is why 73% of employees are reporting burnout.
Empowered teams build better products
Teams continuously talking with customers, learning their pain points and needs, enables them to create products that customers love.
Better business returns
Continuous discovery with customers coupled with iterative testing of solutions enables teams to identify and capitalise on new opportunities.
Align with autonomy
Stakeholders define the team goals, aligned with the business strategy, but let the teams figure out how to achieve them.
Sustainable over time
Teams own the code they produce which encourages better code quality, spreads the cost of maintenance and avoids big rewrites.
Empowered teams tap into people's intrinsic motivators of Mastery, Autonomy, Purpose and Relatedness
Learn from those who have already done it
