Aligning teams and metrics with outcomes:

1. Clarify business outcomes – where do you want your business to go? Outcomes must be measurable, define the value.

2. Form teams based on the outcomes – teams must be cross-functional and sustainable. Teams will deliver based on the outcomes

3. Metrics – start measuring things that will change people’s behavior

4. Incent – incent the teams based on the metric

Repeat the above cycle – one outcome at a time!

When teams understand the business outcomes and know what/how they are being measured, they will start to perform!

You know outcome oriented agility is working when teams start talking about the outcomes instead of technical things.
