Make Good #1

Holly Davis
Head of Delivery


1. To produce or achieve what is desired or expected; make good.

If the definition of delivery is to ‘produce or achieve what is desired’ we are all doing delivery. It transcends every role and in the right workplace, everyone is held accountable for its success.

This newsletter is therefore not just aimed at the delivery managers, the product owners or the project managers but literally anyone involved in the delivery of digital projects and products.

It will signpost the best content from the last week, so we can all continue on the journey to “make good”. Here is the first one, if you’d like to receive these in your inbox in future.
