Speed is by far the most sought-after benefit today in Agile project management, according to VerizonOne’s State of Agile in 2018. The only constant is change, and the only way to combat change is to release and realize benefits quickly while objectives and their specifications fit business needs. According to PMI’s Pulse of the Profession, 71% of organizations are adopting Agile for just this reason and many are focused on Benefits Realization. One primary driver is the cost of delaying a project, which is often so great that companies should be willing to pay up to three times (3x) the market labor rate for two times (2x) the speed. In a market where “software is eating up the world” and we can sequence a human genome for less than $1,000, companies are shying away from investments that take longer than 12 to 18 months to deliver. The Solution? Agile management.
You've read the research, listened to the experts, and reviewed best practices and case studies. But now, you need to create something new. Where do you start? How can you avoid churning out the same old thing? Explore how developing a culture of small experiments—including challenging yourself and your team to create every day—can lead to better ideas, better teamwork, and more successful learning programs. Some of the world’s greatest inventions have happened by accident, science has achieved breakthroughs they weren’t looking for, and entrepreneurs have founded successful businesses with modest ideas. The Challenge Mindset is a way of improving teams, programs, and strategies through curiosity and learning.
