BUILDING OPERATIONS FOR A STARTUP - SHOW 11: THE AGILEAN DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT PROCESS - WILLIAM EASTMAN
EPISODE 37: SETTING UP THE PROJECT TEAM
For the most part this is standard 101 for creating temporary project teams working on a specific issue. The goal is to perform a brain transplant of everything you know and the importance of the project.
Groups can become either a gaggle of individuals or synergy producing team and most of that lies on your shoulders. Here is a process we have used for years to increase the probability of having a high performing team.
EPSIODE 38: PROJECT GOALS & OBJECTIVES
We have used this analogy in previous shows but still applies - go slow early to go fast later. We have collaboratively created the purpose and ground rules for group functioning. Now is the time to shift the focus to the details of the project.
EPISODE 39: THE 3 SCRUMS & 4 SPRINTS
A SCRUM: it is a project management process that relies on incremental improvements and is based on 1 to 4 week sprints.
The Sprints are short-term, time boxed to accomplish a segment of work. The output of a Sprint provides the basis of the next Sprint; each is an incremental accomplishment to reach an end result.
EPISODE 40: MANAGEMENT CONTROLS
Given the Agilean process, it provides the manager/leader with 6 options for controlling the process and end result of the project. We will discuss how to use each effectively to raise the probabilities of a successful first offer.
