Being an outcome-thinking team means that work is prioritized, and teams are structured around the outcomes that the company wants to achieve. A strong correlation was evident between those outcome-oriented teams and teams that drove significant impact. To find that balance between outcome-thinking and engineering needs you simply need to think further out into the future: 1. How much would this work benefit your outcome 1+ years out? 2. What happens if you don’t do it? 3. What are the chances of it being successful? Finding this balance can is never an easy call, but it’s normal.
