Here is a causal loop diagram on defects released to production, taken from “Lean from the Trenches” [Kniberg, 2011] and slightly modified.

Use the up and down arrows in the nodes in the model to:

  • Increase release defects, without reducing scope.
  • Increase release defects and recducing scope a bit more.
  • Experiment some more with the model.

What do you observe?

All causal loop diagrams are models and thus they're wrong and useful at the same time. You can remix a model to make it more closely represent your context. Please share your remixed model with the world!
