Vision Statement and Mission Statement product and and delivery..
As head of software delivery function, should I look to set a vision that states...
"We endeavour to deliver the product vision, sustainability, transparently, timely, efficiently following agile principles.'
Or should it be more specific...
"We endeavour to deliver feature A,B, C by the end of the year.
(I'm looking to validate my own opinion or be corrected here)
Forget endeavour. Set a vision for agile change which will anchor everyone's working day, then communicate and reinforce a sense of urgency for it.
My gut tells me you are right and that's what we need to do. I've got to navigate the politics.
