There is a framework that is popular among Agile teams, which helps them manage product development and other “knowledge work” through empirical process control. In this framework, called Scrum, there is a repeating cycle where teams establish a hypothesis by building something small, testing the hypothesis, reflecting on the experience, and making adjustments based on what has been learned. The centerpiece of Scrum is a dedicated, cross-functional Scrum Team that can consistently deliver value. Through frequent inspection of a particular set of artifacts, and via a series of events (meetings) that help ensure there is transparency into the process, the team is able to adapt and improve.
