Challenge

Maybe you came across one of the following situations. You are aware of a challenge, but having difficulties resolving them.

  • We know a new software product is required, but we have no capacities to implement.
  • We believe in better, efficient, agile team organization, but our current organization is not willing to change.
  • We want to keep up with disrupting startups and new business models, but we are not able to move quick and radical enough.
  • We have a vision for a new product, but we are not sure if product succeeds on market and thus not willing to hire more staff.
  • We want to implement our solutions in hip, state-of-the-art technology, but we don’t have enough internal skill existing.
  • We would like to boost performance by external expertise,  but it’s too expensive, not committed enough on our business and we miss increase of own know how.
  • We would like to work with software service supplier, but we fear resistance of staff and bad vibe in organization.

  • sprint review (2h) – discussion/presentation of sprint results with stakeholder (customer, team)
  • sprint retrospective (2h) – team retrospective of past sprint, continuous improvement trigger
  • business value day (8h) – team focusing on increase of business value and efficiency (business know how, new technologies, strategy and vision etc.)
