TL; DR: Agile at Tesla, Roadmap Bankruptcy—Food for Agile Thought #276

Welcome to the 276th edition of the Food for Agile Thought newsletter, shared with 30,023 peers. This week, we delve into Agile at Tesla; we learn how Retrospectives work in the most unlikely places, and we embrace a new approach of risk-mitigating by utilizing the Product Backlog.

We then analyze what product managers can do to deliver more value with existing processes; we detail three cases that indicate that your product roadmap is not up to the job but in desperate need of a restart, and we point at three common mistakes when calculating customer lifetime value.

Lastly, we explore a simple visualization tool to help teams turn learnings into a better way of working day after day.
