Visualizing the whole product life cycle is important for everyone to understand how product is developed and maintained. The value stream mapping workshop is a good practice to create a picture of your current flow and to build a future image of it.

I tried to list down 5 models of organizing and leading teams. It could be that some transition stages appear in-between. It is not necessary to go through all of them, so it is beneficial to evaluate the current culture (see the post about it) of our organization and upon setting the vision for our teams, determine where we want to be in a short term. Then, start to work on it continuously and relentlessly. It always pays back.
