To Release or not to Release

This is a question that is asked a lot in a regulated environment. It has different meanings in different situations. For the Product Manager of commercial software it is a question of how much feature function can I get into my product in the next release cycle. For the in-house, bespoke system Product Manager the question becomes what is the right release cadence to service my business. These situations face the same factors and getting them wrong can be disastrous to both.

The challenge

We are regulated to ensure that we construct systems in a responsible way and can demonstrate that with clearly defined processes and documented evidence. These processes and documented evidence come at a hefty price. For the commercial software Product Manager this means that there is less feature function for the next release as resources are burned following, and documenting the necessary processes and outcomes.

It is the greatest goal of each and every large organization to have a facility that runs smoothly and efficiently. After all, the more efficient a company is, the larger the profits they will make.

This process has been proven to be counterproductive for the company. By the time the developers get to the end product, many times they have found that there are major problems with it. Even worse, some find that the finished product has become obsolete and therefore; they have taken the time, effort and company's money to develop a product that simply is not marketable. The AGILEPART11 from BGASoft will eliminate all of those problems, and make your organization much more efficient.
