How to make work flow (English)


Environments characterized by uncertainty, frequent requirements changes and competitive in terms of time and budget, require flexible working methods that allow rapid validation of developments to avoid costly deviations.

However, many organizations try to survive in these kinds of contexts by further reinforcing classical management methods. They try to maximize people's occupation and wonder why delivery times are lengthening. They insist on the fulfillment of the plans without reviewing the criteria of prioritization of works and response to unforeseen events. To better control the process, they introduce new milestones and approvals that, ironically, further increase both deadlines and costs.

New management practices are needed to make the work flow, to see and understand the real state of the tasks in progress, to quickly identify the issues that block the flow of work and activities that do not add value, and to concentrate conversations and effort of people in effective actions, facilitating decision-making and self-management.
