The ‘Why we get paid’-Series starts with a simple observation:
We (that is the Software Development Team) get paid, because the product we create generates more value (B) than cost (A). That leads to a few simple Observations on why we get paid.
To keep getting paid we can manipulate the size of these two areas. Interestingly, Agile software development address both areas:
- Agile Development helps decrease the size of A => that’s essentially decreasing the cost of product creation.
- Agile Development helps increase the size of B => in other words: helps get more out of the projects we create.
