Often i step into discussions why isn’t a team doing WOW or creating amazing features on most of projects teams work.
I found 3 main reasons that will lead into that scenario.
- Persons are overloaded with development work, therefore they don’t get out of the forest to see the big picture, and that means that long term goals or wow features will never occur. Give it a rest, and people will start to became more pro-efficient.
- You hired the wrong persons for the job, and you have no visionaries or creative minds on your teams, you should start thinking on joining one thinker to the team.
- You micro manage your teams, and they don’t have space to take their own decisions, so you should not complain that they are not doing it. If you give them some space, most probably you’ll get surprised.
If you can’t change the way you are doing things, at least you should stop complaining about not having great things.
