About this Case Study
Does work grind to a halt whenever your team's star developer goes on vacation? Do some work items spend a very long time waiting for input from senior members of your team or programme? Does your team struggle with highly variable flows of work? Did The Phoenix Project's Brent problem sound a little too familiar?
A skills liquidity matrix can be used to help a team self organise around work and skills matchups. Additionally, this simple tool can help leaders plot a course for maturing the performance and agile practice of a team or value stream.
Building on Chris Matts' important work in measuring and managing skills liquidity, this session covers how and why to create and use a skills liquidity matrix to smooth the flow of work and increase the ability to absorb variability.
