Value-driven Delivery Beta
Many teams struggle to deliver value early and frequently. Teams often work on what is easiest, lowest risk, or most familiar because they just don’t know who all their stakeholders are and what those stakeholders value.
The first Agile Principle says “Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software”, but even Agile teams can fall victim to delayed or inadequate value delivery. Maximizing velocity and delivering lots of story points doesn’t guarantee to deliver lots of value.
Teams that use Value-driven Delivery create stakeholder value early and often, based on the answers to these three simple – but not easy – questions:
- Who are your stakeholders?
- What do they value?
- What are you doing in the next two weeks to add value to your stakeholders?
This information permits teams to sequences and prioritize work to maximize value delivery, and then track progress based on value delivered rather than via time and resources expended, story points delivered, etc.
