What a great post! I wasn’t familiar yet with this little framework. Very useful. Will be definitely trying it out. And agree with you: it should be extra useful at an organizational level, as way to try to figure out bigger levers to pull...

Interesting thoughts! Is that example from your upcoming book? 😉

I'd question the conclusion that a missing Sprint Goal is the dysfunction in your example. Actually that's premature settlement on a solution. And that's the problem with that method: It drives people to see exactly those (assumed) dysfunctions that they already have a (assumed) solution for in their toolbox - which in turn becomes the constraint.

Great article, Martijn - Love the systematic approach as well as the shift from lagging to leading.

And it comes with a bit of humor too, when you read this sentence:

"Every company I ever worked for as an employee had problems" - You need to stop working men ;)
