There is a constant push & pull between delivery and continuous improvement. Immediate value is palpable wherever there is shipping.
Work related to improving processes, tweaking tools, adapting communication or working on relations is often sacrificied on the time-to-market altar.
In this world delivery is king.
But once in a while we get reminded about black swans (like the dot-com bubble or disputedly – the current pandemic) or a new aproach to managing projects is born (like Agile). Things like that change our way of working, force us to shift our perspective.
So when “lost in delivery”, it is sometimes worthwhile considering a dinosaur’s dilemma – should I be interested more in finding a fresh new tree to feed on or… “what is that falling star on the sky?”
