Finding Efficiencies in Your Development Lifecycle
Many of us feel like we never have enough time to complete everything we want in a given sprint, cycle, or phase. Even though we can't add more hours to our day, we can add time by removing inefficiencies in our development lifecycle management approach. Melissa Tondi explores a number of areas that may be causing inefficiencies in our overall approach. These problem areas include acceptance criteria for requirements that are not understood, actionable, or demonstrable; unit tests that are misunderstood or non-existent; and demos that don’t actually demonstrate capability. Melissa shares practical solutions that can be implemented quickly. Share your previous inefficiencies and your solutions. Once you have a plan to reduce or eliminate the inefficiencies, you can spend more time in your overall development schedule—and effectively add more time to accomplish what you need to do.
