Practice Technique Criteria Example

Enterprise Decision Making

Starting

  • The highest executive in the department makes all the decisions, and it takes forever

Developing

  • High level strategic decisions at the portfolio and value stream level (i.e. product strategy, new market expansion) are centralized, given the inputs of those impacted by the results

Emerging

  • With elements of budgeting and governance in place, strategic decisions are delegated to both business and IT leaders who have local context and an understanding of the portfolio or value stream strategy given input from stakeholders
  • Agile teams decide "how" the work will get done in terms of the execution process, and roles and responsibilities

Adapting

  • The product owner, within the boundaries of strategy, governance, and budgeting, has the authority to decide "what" will be built to help meet strategic objectives

Optimizing

  • The team, including the product owner, given the enterprise mission, strategic objectives, and performance measures,  have the autonomy to make all decisions including the "what" and the "how"
