Digital Product Delivery
Are we getting our digital products built, and in the hands of our users quickly?
Are we limiting our technical & investment risk, and maximizing our customer experience & ROI by iteratively releasing thin slices of value vs. Big Bang?
Are we enabling our teams, and holding them accountable to innovating and having a test & learn mindset?
Do we have truly high-functioning teams that are motivated by a specific shared goal, and empowered to make smart & timely decisions about how and what they are funded to build?
Do we have predictability and visibility to continuously improve delivery milestones? Or are we “predictably wrong” (in timeline, budget, resource needs, scope we can deliver, etc.)?
Are we optimizing output of our delivery teams by continuously funneling work to a high functioning team once they are in “performing”? Or are we wasting capacity by constantly ramping up and down and repeating the efforts of forming, storming, norming, and ultimately performing?
Are our cross-functional teams (Product, Business, Technology, PMO, etc.) aligned toward a common North Star – what it means to be “agile” in our organization - tailored to our skillsets, industry constraints, political landscape, values, and culture? Or are our teams getting mixed messages and contradictions that leave them inefficient & frustrated?
