If You Want to go Faster, Try Empowering your Teams...

Some years ago, I was working with a team developing a new product at a technology company. The team was concerned that their Time to Market (T2M) was too slow, and they believed that they would be able to improve it by automating their build-and-test process. Automating any manual process is usually a good investment to improve T2M, but I suggested that we should first look at their overall T2M using a very simplified value stream map to understand where they were spending their time.
