Have you ever led an ICT related product development project with only high-level and uncertain product feature requirements? If that is not challenging enough, you also face a drop-dead schedule, where time-to-market is critical and multiple short releases are of big advantage. How do you gain confidence that your project will be properly managed with quality outcomes that satisfy the end users? Furthermore, With multiple releases, how should you manage a triage of new development, quick fixes and minor enhancements? To meet the above challenges, it will requires enterprises to make changes in terms of team roles, process and tools, which may enable them to release smaller product features or changes quickly, seamlessly & frequently.
