Some projects never seem to end. Big upfront design results in long execution phases and eventually it becomes difficult to believe it will ever be delivered. This week, Peter and Dave discuss how to approach these seemingly never-ending projects once they are well underway. Having started this way, how can you bring it under control and apply what we know of business agility to move forwards again?

This week's takeaways:

  • Stakeholder communication.
  • Identify and prioritize
  • Do one thing at a time.
  • Work on the thing that will help us create stability and move forward.
  • Meanwhile, have everybody else focus on improving the integrations, fixing defects, and removing technical debt.
