We announced Silver Stories today. Silver Stories it the first tool in the agile and kanban space to target stakeholders. In this blog post, I’ll go through some of the rationale behind the tool, why we are developing it, and a brief explanation of some of the key ideas and features.

Why Silver Stories?

Getting software to the market is a two step process. Step one is to decide what you want to do. Step two is to execute on it. In response to the heavy planning in traditional process, agile has emphasised execution and neglected planning. Dividing the workflow like this doesn’t mean waterfall: You could do those steps concurrently throughout the life of the project.

We’ve assumed that the biggest problem in delivery has been in how we build software. And for a long time that was true. Yet, as agile has caught on, the bottleneck has been moving outside software development and into the linkage with business outcomes.

The end result is that there are a lot of agile teams out there that are doing incremental and iterative deliveries, but are thrashing around when it comes to meeting business goals.

This is what Silver Stories aims to solve.

In the next few posts, I’ll highlight some of the issues and how we aim to tackle them.
