Many IT leaders continue to wrestle with how to measure their value delivery in a way that aligns with corporate strategy and customer value. Executives are responsible for setting clear goals and removing the system bottlenecks impacting their hard-working and talented teams. However, many enterprises still operate in an outdated model that sees IT as order takers with limited visibility into business strategy and no feedback loops to the business. This mentality creates project-based work on an annual cadence and budget. Under this view of reality, IT teams focus on completing activities instead of driving outcomes.
When operating with fixed capacity, the only way to achieve aggressive business targets is by improving speed, quality and efficiency to unlock capacity from existing resources. To that end, technology teams benefit from value stream management combined with outcome-based OKRs. This combination of product-driven development and meaningful metrics allows them to operate more efficiently in order to shorten time-to-value and increase efficiency.
