Maximizing Value In The Presence of Constraints

Reading: Maximizing Value In The Presence of Constraints

Organizations embracing an Agile approach to their work value their ability to inspect and adapt. They value the ability to continually learn and deepen their understanding of what problems they are trying to solve so that they can inspect and adapt toward a better solution. The challenge is that just because we’re Agile and we want to inspect and adapt our way to a better solution doesn’t mean that we can ignore the constraints of scope, cost, and time. Those constraints matter and we need to find the best solution possible within those constraints. Figuring out how to do that is no small thing.

In this week’s podcast, LeadingAgile’s Founder and CEO, Mike Cottmeyer spends some time talking with Dave Prior about how to maximize the value we’re able to deliver in the presence of constraints.
