Got pulled over for speeding several days ago… too focused on getting to my destination — my daughter’s middle school… so in that zone… in that flow… getting ‘from point A to point B’… did not even see how fast I was going even though I got the heads-up display of my speed in front of me… did not feel I was speeding… did not even see the police car waiting — for speedsters– on the the median!
Sometimes — specially in our rush — we forget to check our surroundings… and we get a setback … a penalty… a costly fine… this applies to Software Development as well… in our rush to deliver, we forget to check for:
- C = Constraints
- A = Assumptions
- R = Risks
- D = Dependencies
- I = Impediments
- B = Bottlenecks
Yes, be aware of CARDI-B ( a good easy to remember mnemonic!) if you want to avoid setbacks.
