“When will we be done?” is the business equivalent of “Are we there yet?” And unlike “Are we there yet?” it is a much harder question to answer. All too often the answer is either “we don’t know” or “We must ship by August 7th, even if we’re not done.” Join us for this webinar to answer these questions
When looking at the transparency of Agile and the granularity of team-based metrics, it is extremely important to be responsible in how you use your measurements. On May 31 at 12 pm ET, Applied Frameworks Joel Bancroft-Connors and Laura Caldie will join to discuss the five principals they use when dealing with Agile Metrics
Principle 8 of the Agile Manifesto speaks of Sustainable development. Sustainability starts with a strong purpose. While Dan Pink’s Autonomy and Mastery are built into Scrum, purpose is often lacking for the team. We need a way to connect the leadership vision to the team's work. To create team purpose. Recorded live on April 27 2023 Joel Bancroft-Connors and Kim Poremski will show in this webinar how practicing better profit sustainability will connect the work of the team to the larger vision of the company, and get your employees motivated again.
Do you understand your value exchange model? The economic value of a software-enabled solution is the benefits a customer receives less their costs. How a customer exchanges money for this value represents a critical design decision for product leaders with substantial, long-term implications for their underlying technical and business architectures as well as the sustainability of their solution. Design choices made by business leaders about value exchange directly influence the profitability of the software-enabled solution’s business model.
I have years of fond memories of Thanksgiving Dinner. As a child growing up outside of Buffalo, NY, we’d play downstairs while the parents prepared the meal upstairs. Then, when the time came, we helped set the table, schlepping food up and down the stairs. Finally, following some words of thanks, the entire family would eat, and then the adults would return upstairs, doing… well, adult stuff. But, of course, that adult stuff wasn’t our concern because we kids went back to goofing around, often outside if it wasn’t too cold.
There is no silver bullet for measuring Agile performance. If you only count one metric, it is easy to get tunnel vision. Be it the team focusing on just making the metric better (often through gaming the system) or management using the single metric to drive all decisions, you can end up with a product or organization that looks good while it is really driving off a cliff.
Webinar: Applied Frameworks Joel Bancroft-Connors (CST) is joined by Bob Galen (CEC) for an in-depth discussion about the Agile Coach Growth Wheel and what it means to measure yourself as an agile coach.
Applied Frameworks SVP Businesses Development, Laura Caldie, and Director, Client Delivery, Bob Ternes, explore sustainable profitability and how the sales team plays a vital role in your organization's path to profitability.
Are you a product manager and wondering "How can I increase profit?" Well first. It's important to ask, "What is profit?" It's the net income that results from revenue minus expenses such as salaries, product costs, and sales and marketing. It fuels sustainable business. So, why do product managers fail to maximize or increase profit? One of the root causes is that product managers often fail to recognize and leverage the unique characteristics of software. To help you increase profit, I’m going to share 10 ways software differs from other kinds of offerings, notably physical goods. Understanding these differences is fundamental to creating pricing and licensing strategies that maximize profit.
