Taking a product to market with a clear ROI, in the fastest way possible, and the highest quality takes a lot of moving parts that need to be put in place and properly managed. We help you with your Agile Product Delivery strategy by first understanding your current needs while also looking to the future, anticipating how your Agile practice needs to scale to properly support your Product Development roadmap. Most importantly, we set Continuous Improvement (Kaizen) at the center of your product delivery processes.
The Pareto Principle In Product Delivery
The Pareto Principle, commonly known as the 80/20 rule, specifies that 80% of consequences come from 20% of the causes, asserting an unequal relationship between inputs and outputs. This principle serves as a general reminder that the relationship between inputs and outputs is not balanced. This also applies to Product Delivery and the value realized by the features delivered in a given product. The graph below illustrates this concept. If all 14 features are delivered at the same time the value delivered to the customer is delayed at the expense of the features with lesser value.
Prioritizing features based on value as well as favoring a continuous delivery of value ensures that the most valuable features are delivered first. We address this by employing a systematic approach that begins with the Envision Phase.
The Envision Phase of Agile Development focuses on collecting necessary background information to create a high-level project vision and plan where Epics and Features are created and prioritized based on clear KPIs that focus on value delivered to the customer. This is also where technology challenges are mitigated and initial decisions are made. Some key activities are:
- Conduct User Research
- Interview key stakeholders, business SMEs, product owner, and end-users
- Review business and technology requirements
- Confirm issues, risks, and assumptions
- Understand product release and timeline to market objectives
- Discus branding and user experience
Agile Methodology is a software development approach that enables independent but cross-functional teams to deliver solutions quickly and to respond to change. Scrum and Kanban are two very popular Agile frameworks used for the delivery of software.
The Agile Team
Identifying the right person for each agile team role can be challenging. We help you establish the team by putting the right person in the right role and coach each role within their specific focus area and responsibility.
Business Agility is the alignment of your business in one single philosophy and methodology in how to approach user-centric problem-solving. Though these disciplines can be applied separately, they are in many respects related to one another and they all have the Customer at the center.
