Balance speed of software delivery with confidence

“Delivering at the speed of business” means doing things right. To do things right, software delivery teams need to work collaboratively towards a unified goal and make adjustments based on customer feedback along the way. Consider a simple analogy – you “steer” every day driving your car to the store or work. You know the path, how long it should take, and can anticipate some of the risks you might encounter. But you can’t predict other drivers’ reactions, a sudden change in weather, or new road work causing bottlenecks. So you have to “steer” – continually make small adjustments to stay on course and still arrive at a certain time. How fast you can drive depends on your visibility – the road in front of you, traffic conditions several miles ahead, your flexibility to choose an alternate route, your confidence in the capabilities of your car, and, ultimately, a clear sense of where you want to go. And you are not driving alone, there are other drivers with similar considerations and goals. As a “team," you need to work together to ensure you arrive at your destination safely and on time. Now consider your software delivery journey. While faster delivery is a goal you must also have trust and confidence you are delivering the right thing. Basically, you want to balance efficiency and effectiveness by achieving visibility, agility and predictability.
