It’s about people, not tools !
In every team, problems come in a variety of shapes and sizes. As soon as there is a problem, we look for tools to fix it. Does it really solve the problem?
Tools are useful to solve problems only if people know what problems to solve.
When tools don’t solve the problem, we wonder why? Did we invest in the wrong tool ? Why are the tools not driving results? Why does the tool work for some teams and not others? Is the team using the tool correctly?
Using only tools and processes, to fix a problem won’t guarantee best results or even solve the problem at hand. Tools are useful to solve problems only if people know what problems to solve.
At the heart of processes and tools are People. The driver for success in any team lies within the team. Fostering and maintaining a strong and positive problem-solving culture in teams certainly has its real and sustainable benefits.
