Development work focuses on predictability and quality while discovery work focuses on fast learning and validation. Discovery and development are visualised in two tracks because it’s two kinds of work and two kinds of thinking. It is vital to involve the whole team in discovery tasks wherever possible and keep discovery work and progress visible to the whole team.

- Two tracks, not two teams
