Back in 2008, the product team was frustrated, unmotivated and unproductive in their attempts to build Softeng Portal Builder, a Web Content Management solution for the cloud platform. Their approach to development was with the classic water-fall methodology. Months into the project, having more documentation than working software and a high turnover of team members dissatisfied due to their inability to reverse the situation. Having tried everything they could imagine the situation was unsustainable, until they were introduced to Lean and Scrum and a new team of engineers was created.
