Mike Harris of David Consulting Group
Tracking Value from Business Case to Deployment
How to Visualize Value
Organizations need to stop keeping IT in the dark when it comes to the "value" of their initiatives. Or marketeers should acknowledge that they are ignorant or lazy about detailing them to IT. So how do we make IT become part of the ROI solution ?
Can a simple model like the V.V.F. Value Visualization Framework discuss, define, measure and prioritize software development initiatives based on the ability to deliver on expectations of Value ?
What are the 5 steps to V.V.F. ? How does our Estimation of Story Size - and delaying the delivery to another Sprint - affect Value? We know these affect Cost Savings, but do we as Product Owners, Planners and Change Agents have the terminology to describe and measure economic and business value ?
Hey, we talked about this at the July 2013 meeting, and it is about time we talked about it again. This topic is one that we may not consider enough when we talk about making our software effective to the organization.
