Practical Directions for Overcoming Typical Fallacies

A checklist for today’s product-development managers

1. Make queues and information flows noticeable.

2. Quantify the price of delays and element it into the decisions.

3. Introduce resource slack where utilization is highest.

4. Shift the main focus of control systems from effectiveness to response time.

5. Reduce transaction expenses make it possible for smaller batch sizes and quicker feedback.

6. Test out smaller batches; you can easily revert to large batches if this doesn’t work.

7. Treat the development plan being a hypothesis that may evolve as new information becomes available.

8. Start jobs only when you are ready to create a complete commitment.

9. Sh t for convenience Ask what features is deleted, not merely so what can be added.

10. Test early, quickly, and sometimes, with computer models and physical prototypes, in managed and real-life client environments.

11. Emphasize overlapping and iterative—not linear—process designs.

12. Give attention to fast feedback in the place of first-pass success.

groups that used an iterative approach and conducted very early and frequent tests made more errors along the way. But they outperformed (in terms of the time and effort required) teams that tried to get their design right the first time because they used low-cost prototyping technologies. Read More
