VFQ stands for Value, Flow, Quality – its framework of focus. VFQ is not a methodology but a belief that focusing on these three outcomes (rather than, say, time, budget and scope) is the best way to discover the right methodology for your context and to achieve sustained benefit. These outcomes are best explained as:
- Deliver value early and often
- Optimize end-to-end flow for faster delivery
- Enhance quality through fast feedback
We see people and businesses adhering to process, while losing sight of the outcomes. Teams doing Agile, not being Agile, cannot deliver the benefit their business is looking for. Teams focusing on Value, Flow and Quality, can and will.
