Decentralizing development with cross-functional, autonomous teams enables a long-term focus on a single product or service. When those autonomous teams are centered around value streams they can become passionate about their work and experts in customer’s needs to deliver higher quality features faster.
Creating value stream-oriented teams
Decentralization improves software quality and accelerates time to value.
Cross-functional, autonomous teams centered around value streams break down operational silos. This improves collaboration as well as the alignment of business, IT, and governance needs. Value stream centric teams not only include product and development members, but also representatives from all departments that support a product or service, including security-based teams such as Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) or Information Security (InfoSec).
