      Great questions by Laurant which can provide you  insights. Also, why not ask your team what challenges/impediments they are facing and then start to address those challenges ?

      How far away is that deadline: six days? Six weeks? Six months? A year or more?

      How large is the discrepancy between the date predicted by current velocity and the desired deadline?

      Won't work if the deadline is near.

      > Overtime?

      Won't work, and will lose talent you can't afford to lose.

      That's not the only option; you can also cut scope.
