Stepping up to the plate

Our teams are redefining the way we work together. As we enter a discovery phase in our project (what bugs remain?, what stories did we miss?) we're asking our teams to adapt and innovate.

Our goal is simple: Become production ready.

Our task is hard. We have a large complex system, and our customers need to see just how great the system is, and how quickly we can resolve problems. Our customers need to explore and discover the functionality available in the (huge) application they have been developing with us. We need to support their efforts. There are no simple processes to tell us what to do.

It will be interesting to see who on our development team steps up to the plate and changes our processes to help evaluate and stabilize the system. It is never easy to change the direction of a team, it is always interesting to watch those who lead the charge and see them flourish.

Is it you?

How soon before production do you think a team should go into a 'discovery' phase?

9:10 a.m.
