Impediments Analysis?
Fafa, Ghana
What is impediments analysis? Any help, please?
Editor: An inpediment is something that impedes; a hindrance or obstruction, an obstacle, a bottleneck.

Impediments Removal
Zondervan, Management Consultant, Netherlands
As a Scrum coach I know of impediments as obstacles in IT development that hinder progress. The idea is to identify these quickly and to address them effectively so that greater progress can be made. Identification, doing a root cause analysis (as in 5 Why's) and determination of impact are logical steps to follow.
After resolution of one or more impediments we measure what is the effect of resolving them to encourage further impediment removal.
Beware it's more of a philosophy then a process, an active challenging of the status quo, a quick identification and resolution of that which is blocking and measurement of the results.
It is strongly tied to the empowerment of employees and specifically teams.

I am sorry, but this term is not defined in TOCICO Dictionary, 2nd, 2012. What is the context around 'impediments analysis'? Where did you hear / read about it?

I moved this thread from somewhere else on 12manage, because it reminded me of TOC. So probably it is indeed not a known term within TOC.
