EVO’ Part 2: Video

Each team member involved in developing the solution must complete a Time Box Form. This enables the manager to oversee the tasks and overall goals.

A Time Box typically lasts 10 days and on the form each day is given a number 1 - 10. It is logical to start a Time Box on a Monday (day 1) and finish on Friday the following week (day 10).

Working through the tasks in priority order (Musts, Shoulds, Coulds, Wonts), agree a list of tasks between the team members. The tasks should be allocated so that no one person has a disproportionate number of high priority tasks. It’s important that the number and scale of the Musts can feasibly be completed within the Time Box. A number, but not necessarily all, of the Shoulds will also be completed. If time allows teams members can also carry out Coulds.

At the end of a Time Box the changes made to the product, service or business process must provide an incremental improvement and must not reduce their functionality. This allows all stakeholders (managers, investors and customers) to see demonstrable benefits.

Any number of Time Boxes can be used in sequence to form an Epoch, and many Epochs can be chained together to form a perpetual process.

Break points which coincide with Epochs can be a useful management tool to assess the activities against wider objectives.
