Here is a causal loop diagram on long release cycles, taken from “Lean from the Trenches” [Kniberg, 2011] and slightly modified.
Use the up and down arrows in the nodes in the model to:
- Delay a release to allow some features to slip in
- Simply add a feature to the release without dropping another one
- Drop some features from the release
