Turn Lemons into Lemonade

Just my thoughts on TRIZ principle 22 “Blessing in disguise” or “Turn Lemons into Lemonade”.

Use harmful factors to achieve a positive effect

– Using Heat wasted for generating electricity

Bugs arrival rate can be increased by Agile deliveries during the initial few sprint with more review effort using many resources. Early sprints produces more defects, because of many reviews and less product acquaintances. This increase of upstream product bugs will mean there will be less bugs in the later part of the product sprints(as initial sprint bugs are carried forward as features in subsequent sprints) , increasing their software Quality. Also during the mature stage of the product iterations, less resources will be working (because of less bugs ). This will give leeway for the project team as they can release extra testing/ review resources to another project during later product sprints. just my thoughts on TRIZ principle 22 “Blessing in disguise” or “Turn Lemons into Lemonade”.

Recycle waste  material from one process as raw materials for another.

Using defects as tickets for helpdesk system. The root causes of the defects with their cause eliminations can become lessons learnt and best practices for future project management

Eliminate the primary harmful action by adding it to another harmful action to resolve the problem.

Turn the waterfall development overheads by eliminating them through use of Agile Management practices

Amplify a harmful factor to such a degree that it is no longer harmful.

excess waiting time or  unnecessary sign-offs of work products are impediments to Agile product deliveries. These sign-offs from stake holders should be amplified to such an extent through visual KANBAN and collaboration hubs, that all stake holders literally have online visibility to the product development and can approve(“sign off”) or comment whenever there is a delay or defect of any kind in the product life cycle
