Agile has ‘officially’ become the mainstream. Long gone are the days where there was a question whether it works, or whether it is applicable for us.
More and more companies are adopting Agile practices, from small projects to mega-programs worth several hundred million dollars.
And most of those companies have done it under the pressure from their competitors that had implemented agile principles and who were coming to the market much faster, with higher-quality software that better meets user needs, predictable timelines and at a lower cost!
And that is not hype...
The Agile Impact Report, Proven Performance Metrics from the Agile Enterprise has assessed the performance of Agile development projects against a database of more than 8,000 primarily traditional development project in three key areas: productivity, time-to-market and quality.
The results were that teams using Agile were 50% faster to market and 25% more productive, with one quarter the number of defects.
Well trained and successful agile teams can beat even those numbers!
And that is where our expertise and depth of knowledge comes. We can help your organization create, build and lead high-performance teams.
Why are Agile teams 25% more productive?
What if you could provide such environment that your software development team is 10-20% more productive?
The potential benefits could be enoromous, from saving achived on labour cost, to faster time to market.
But what if you could boost productivity 25% or more!?
Yes, you can!
The independent study done on sample of over 8,000 projects have shown that agile teams are on average 25% more productive than their industry peers.
Before we analyze this phenomenon, let us define what the productivity is:
Higher Productivity = More scope delivered within the same time frame
Estimation is an essential part of any project management activity.
Agile is no different, we have to estimate for scoping, scheduling and budgeting.
However the planning and estimation between traditional waterfall process based on PMI PMBOK and Agile approach are quite different.
