Solutioning Sessions: The Group Therapy Sessions of IT

solutioning sessions

The first thought when a project fails is “where did we go wrong?”. All the symptoms of an unhealthy project – unrealistic expectations, unclear objectives, and poor communication – come down to one core management value: transparency

In episode 8 of our Tech Terminal podcast, Chris Cox explores why solutioning sessions are valuable to implement as part of a delivery framework and how they help bridge the gap between members of an IT team and business stakeholders.

Addressing the Disconnect

The disconnects often found between business analysts and stakeholders from the development team cause unnecessary delays in the timeline of projects. This is where the magic of solutioning sessions comes in. Both tactical and strategic, these sessions are an opportunity for teams to express doubts, flag upcoming/existing obstacles, and establish strong, open communication.

“It’s counterproductive if people who are working closely with the business stay siloed because you can never know everything upfront from a technical standpoint that’s going to be required for you to deliver.” – Chris Cox

Nurturing collaborative, synergistic relationships amongst groups within the team, these sessions set the footing for a successful agile/scrum framework to be established early on and live throughout the process. Each team and project require a different approach; solutioning sessions aren’t limited to a specific point/ period of the development process. Yet, finding the right cadence and calling the right people to the table may be a challenge…that Chris has the answer to!
