Are your stories ready CXO?

What is it that you really want?, and when will you say that it is done?. These are two fundamental prerequisites before delegating work to someone and this becomes the real cornerstone for success in the outsourcing world. Identifying the right features and having clarity on them is the foundation for delivering value to your business and to get the best out of your outsourcing partner quickly, thus maximising the ROI. Agile frameworks, especially the product backlog, user stories, value stream mapping and release planning are great opportunities for maximising the ROI and to ensure the alignment of your IT strategy to the organizational strategy. Agile frameworks provide great opportunities to the CXOs and their business analysts to maximise value, if they embrace agility before identifying the vendors, so that agility can be enforced from the contracting stage itself. Are you listening?.

  1. What is most important is the software engineering practice itself, how fast can the software be delivered. User stories, value stream mapping and release planning are just a mean to a purpose but it is not the end goal.
