VP of PRODUCT
Hold clearer meetings with objective analysis on your process in language everyone understands. Research shows that many delays stem from parts of the process upstream or downstream of engineering (UX, QA, etc.) Bringing an objective analysis to a retro avoids misplaced blame and lets your team focus on solutions.
Where is your process breaking down? Interruptions will always happen but understanding where issues and bottlenecks are coming from will drive conversations around how to grow and improve. Shared truth transforms the relationship between product teams and the business creating trust and better collaboration.
Whether it’s the wrong priorities, changing requirements, the wrong developer ratios, or a host of other issues most waste is upstream and downstream of your team. Improve those processes and watch your velocity and efficiency climb.
Show the impact your teams are having and facilitate better discussions by speaking in dollars and not just “points”.

I try to help software companies better align their internal processes so they can execute most efficiently. Just like managing sales teams to a revenue forecast, it's critical to understand when new capabilities are going to be available to the market and be confident they will hit those timelines. Bloomfilter gives me visibility unlike any other platform for understanding what's happening inside the historically opaque SDLC.
