How can you structure your large, in-house software developers to make agility flourish? Traditionally, software development is organized into short-term project teams that draw from a pool of specialized talent. Developers often work on multiple projects simultaneously. The problem? Project delays often create lags that ripple across multiple teams, creating inefficiencies and frustration. Moreover, jumping from project to project forces our brains to switch gears, meaning we work harder to function at a lower level. Research suggests 40-80% of productivity is lost in context switching. In contrast, “product teams” are assembled for the long haul. Because teams focus on addressing business problems versus delivering a set of functions, they gain a broader perspective to understand requirements and deliver the desired results. They also suffer less from context switching, resulting in 60-80% gains in productivity. Perhaps more important: knowledge, collaboration and satisfaction grow within cohesive long-lived teams. So how do projects get executed within multiple product teams? Typically, project requirements are divided into epics that go into the product backlog of relevant products. Product owners manage requirements while project managers oversee projects across product teams. In this way, the focus shifts to managing the work—not the people—creating self-empowered teams who foster agility across the enterprise.

As project managers, we strive to learn from our past experiences, and we guide and teach others to do the same. We leverage approaches such as lessons learned to fine-tune the methodology, all to make each project better than the last, and sometimes we succeed. However, when navigating the domain of the unpredictable, these traditional lessons learned often “come up short” for advice, hence the need for a different type of lesson that I call “strategic lessons learned.” Each lesson has a short quote that is purposed to help one retain the value of the lesson, and to keep it more entertaining the quotes are written using rhetorical humor, satire and a touch of inspiration – but you can be the judge of that. I will provide context and background for each lesson with the hope of providing project managers of all types and experience levels a variant way of looking at issues and concerns that impact our projects.
