Limited Capacity filling up

Someone once told me that a “project” is nothing more than a waterfall container that has a fixed date and a fixed scope. In this session, we will discuss the difference between a project mindset and a value driven mindset and how a project mindset may hold us back from delivering maximum value.
We will explore what we truly value and what common practices in our organizations are counter productive like budgets, control, push and output. We will explore concrete practices that you can immediately implement in order to make the shift away from from a project driven mindset to a value driven mindset. We will look at the impact of focusing on discovery, outcome, pull, trust, investing and continuous delivery have on executing projects and delivering products
This session is highly interactive where you will work in teams through a series of facilitated activities and discussions.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Understand 3 ways projects hold us back from achieving max product success
  • The difference between a value-driven mindset and a project-driven mindset
  • 6 practices you can implement to support a value-driven mindset
