Days of Talks
Are you building a product or the right product?
Do you know what your customers actually want?
Are you clear on the business metrics underpinning your product?
Do you validate every feature before building?
Do company structures prevent you collaborating between design & dev?
Are your hands tied because of fixed scope?
Do you find yourself re-working the same thing over and over?
Microsoft started tracking every feature and discovered that only 33% of good ideas actually delivered the expected value
Teams that use legacy development practices spend more time in rework which kills morale and slows delivery
Teams need to shift away from focusing purely on their outputs (features delivered) to focusing on the business and customer outcomes that they deliver.
This shift isn't easy - it requires changes in individual practices, technology and the organisation itself.
Nothing happens without motivation. But motivation alone isn't enough.
Bottom Up approaches that focus on helping teams be more agile will get frustrated and stymied when they come into contact with the wider organisation.
Top Down, "we're now agile" approaches, without focusing on the team level skills and training, end up with "Agile-in-name-only" implementations.
It takes the full team, and the wider organisation, to deliver true business agility.
Conferences provide the motivation for change but all too often the excitement of change is forgotten once the reality of work returns. At UXDX we focus on the Organisational and Personal changes required to deliver real change.
