  • ソフトウェア・エンジニアリング・リーダーは、すべての依頼に対応するための十分なキャパシティが配下のチームにないことを理解している。それでもバックログは増え続けるため、業務の優先順位定に苦慮している。

  • 新たなフィーチャーを求めるビジネス部門からの業務依頼が多すぎるため、ソフトウェア・エンジニアリング・リーダーは、重大な技術的負債を修正するための十分な時間が配下のチームにないと感じており、これが将来的なプロダクトの品質問題につながっている。



  • プロダクト・ロードマップを用いてコストとデリバリ・タイムの透明性を確保し、優先順位の変更による影響をステークホルダーが理解できるようにする。

  • 企業における計画のプロセスでは、組織の戦略計画、目標、想定される主要な結果に基づいて、チームに一定のキャパシティを割り当てる。

  • 可能な限り目標に到達するために、日常的な優先順位定をプロダクト・マネージャーと主要なステークホルダーに委任し、彼らが一定のキャパシティ内で計画を調整できるようにする。
