F

  • Factory - often referred from Six Sigma with the adjective "hidden" for known unknowns in a system.

  • Fail fast - system error visible early in product life cycle to enable fix and improvement.

  • Fast feedback - provides the ability to leverage economically undesirable paths sooner, clear optimism.

  • Fast, flexible, flow - systemic approach to product development to optimize pull of limited quantities of affinity-sized work items into the system and deliver value to the customer (fast), while adapting to the specific needs or solutions (flexible), with a focus on removing impediments that inhibit fast and flexible development (to achieve good flow).

  • Feature - we use feature in reference to mid-level placeholders, defined and scheduled for refinement prior to implementation.

  • Feature-driven - production focused on delivering mid-level placeholders, than minimum value to the customer.

  • Feature team - cross-functional and cross-component team that can pull end-user features from the product backlog and complete them.

  • Fibonacci Sequence - numeric sequence for relative story sizing or reference listed as 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 40 and 100.

  • Fixed-date release - product to be delivered on a known future date. Functionalities of the release, and possibly the cost, needs to be flexible

  • Five layers of Agile Topology - bottom up set up of individuals and team, process and tools, product, organization, and system.

  • Flexibility - stakeholders openness to modification or Agile change in organizational behavior and culture, often misconstrued Agile term to mean change in fundamental agile practice, flavor, to fit the organization.

  • Flow - seamless movement of work through the development process to ensure that good economic value is delivered, eschewing idle work,  big batch, big release, and big functionalities.

  • Forecast - predictions, or estimations about events whose actual outcomes have not yet been observed.

  • Framework - a basic structure underlying a system, concept, or text.

  • Fundamental Attribution Error - research on fundamental attribution error started in the 1950s with social psychologist Fritz Heider and Gustav  Ichheiser, was created 1977 by social psychologist Lee Ross. It is an attempt to explain the external factors from internally driven behaviors, personality and dispositional. Example: an exclamation, "I'm the best, I made it work," without consideration for others feelings.
