By focusing on developing instead of customer needs teams are wasting time and building products that customers don't want.
Leading teams spend one day less per week doing re-work. Which means they spend more on improving their products.
When development teams are treated as feature factories, organisations lose over 50% of the team creativity. Good ideas come from people who build the product.
Bringing the dev team into the ideation and prototyping sessions enables developers to better understand the customer needs and deliver better, and often more efficient, solutions. Equally incorporating Ops into the Product team results in faster releases with higher quality.
