Why get the dev teams involved too early?
Well I say you ought to for two reasons:
- They will be prepared if the project does run
- They can often make significant contributions to the project
Leaving it too late is what I call “chucking it over the fence” often onto an already over-loaded team. Not good.
The dev teams on their part also have to ensure they stay positive (or they won’t get invited again!) and understand things from the business perspective. Things such as “fluid”, “unknowns” and “can do”.
