Defect CrackImplementing incident management can be a difficult and drawn out process when you have to consider: tools, management, work-flows, access rights, severity & priority definitions etc... Sometimes this can take months before all parties involved agree on the appropriate action.

So what if your team takes ownership of a live product before your incident management process is in place? What do you do if someone discovers a serious live defect?

A colleague of mine Frances Maxwell has put to together a great common sense guide to what to do if such issue arises. It's purposely simple, but gives you somewhere to start.

What People Say

“Kelly is an Agile heavy-weight. He came in to assess my multi-million $ Agile development program which wasn’t delivering the right throughput. He interviewed most of the team and made some key recommendations that, when implemented, showed immediate results. I couldn’t ask for more than that except he’s a really nice guy as well.”
