Vibhu is going to join us on Skype and share about a study he did along with his team to pick out some of the best and worst features of popular large scale frameworks.
Over the past few decades, management practices have become ever more scientific and quantitative. Teams are self-organizing & self-managing themselves, as they are taking responsibility to deliver value & maximize their effectiveness & efficiency by inspecting the outcome and adapting the change & simultaneously validating assumptions & hypotheses with key stakeholders. For operations, there are standards processes & relevant data backup to make business decisions which leads to just incremental impact. However, business decisions on innovative ideas have been extremely tough in this highly uncertain environment and leaders are looking for substantial evidences in data form & confidence to get successful commercialization of the breakthrough idea at the marketplace. Many innovative ideas get killed during discussions in the board room in absence of supporting data and never see the real world since there is no way to prove it upfront. This is a big setback to innovators & potential negative impact on the innovation culture as a whole. So now it becomes important to distinguish between when leaders are supporting small continuous improvement ideas in day-to-day operations and supporting to create something genuinely new and innovative solution for the end user meeting the value propositions. If we want to de-risk the innovative idea, iterative experimentation is the only way where innovators will focus on value proposition design through prototyping & experimentation to test innovative ideas & hypotheses in small ways without much up-front investment. Iterative experimentation through SCRUM has high potential to refine the entire business model and ensure market acceptance in non-software industry as well. Scrum is the means to implement design thinking & rapid prototyping.
Mistakes are inevitable! so fail fast, fail cheap, and learn a ton through “Iterative Experimentation”.
