An Introduction to Studios

Transcript

So, I get asked a lot why a transformation company would want to have a studio? The studio gives us the opportunity to take the work our coaches are doing on site and augment that with people who can solve some of the technical problems so that the new teams don’t need to do everything in order to get the code ready to go to the next level. As we looked at why we would do a studio, it was a good thing for our clients because they could focus more on getting business value out the door and it was good for our people because our coaches could focus more on what they do, we could bring in technologists, and we’d have that one-two punch that would really help us solve the clients’ problems. Ultimately, what we wanted to do is reduce the friction of the transformation. So all of these dependencies, all the technical things that can hold us back, how do we get rid of that friction? How do we deliver more value? So if we look at the release or the product that we’re putting out to market what percent of that effort was value and what percent was overhead or waste that we could get out of the system? We talk about that as the value density of the release and if we can increase that value density then either we can spend less money to get the same amount of features out or we can spend the same amount of money and start getting more value to market and competing better in the marketplace. We need to reduce the friction that’s holding back transformations from getting to higher base camps, we need to focus on delivering more and more value to the client or from the client to their clients, we need to support and build up the teams that need to be building this over the long haul, and we need to give our coaches the ability to be more successful by being in the background and helping supply some of those major technical uplifts.
