The Elephant Carpaccio workshop is a great workshop for software teams to learn how to break stories into really thin vertical slices. While writing stories discussions arise about delivering value, priorities, testing and quality.
In today’s dynamic business environment, organizations often find themselves struggling with the challenge of timely delivering value to their customers. Despite the longstanding presence of methodologies such as Lean, Agile, and DevOps, the struggle persists, and the gap between business and IT continues to widen.
Yesterday, I attended a session, presented by Jonathan Smart, on the topic of “Better Value Sooner Safer Happier” which was based on his book “Sooner Safer Happier”. The author’s approach is based on Lean, Agile, and DevOps principles, which have been adopted by many organizations worldwide, but with a strong focus on outcome, not on any process like Scrum, DevOps or Scaled Agile. In this review, I will share my key takeaways, I will not share his full talk, you can read the book and find some videos online.
