Slowing Down to Speed Up

Posted on August 6th, 2013 in Kanban, Lean by siddharta || No Comment

I recently did a short mini-webinar for SolutionsIQ on the topic of slowing down to speed up. The webinar is based on the systems thinking principle that local optimisations can sometimes be bad for the global system.

Often times in agile, we look for process improvement at the delivery team only. This is fine in the early stages when the team is the bottleneck in the process, but after about 8-12 months they stop being the bottleneck. At that point, it makes more sense to look at the rest of the system, rather than focusing on the delivery team alone.

See the video recording of the webinar below:
