In the ever-evolving tech industry, innovation is the pinnacle for success. Innovation need not be caged to technology; rather the approach for developing technology also needs innovation, hence Agile Methodology. It helps organizations to co-create, converse, and collaborate, which enhances performance, reliability, flexibility, and speed.

Being Agile

The question arises, what it truly means to go Agile? Co-ordination, rapidity, and flexibility are the foundations for Agile. In this evolving technological world, adapting to Agile will transform your business. It will bring transparency and bring the inter-team conversation to the front. The organizations can develop software in the form of increments that are not just faster and efficient but can adapt to the modifications needed by the clients, thereby being transparent to the stakeholders. In Agile methodology, team management and productivity will support the framework of incremental or iterative progress of work priority. The most widely used Agile processes are SCRUM, XP, DSDM, etc. These frameworks are the origin of Agile and are based on adapting to change, which will, in turn, help in achieving success for a project.

Organizational Agility

Agile methodology is a solution to the inflexible plan based project management such as ‘waterfall.’ This was a rigid method with less room for modifications in the project. Organizations using the Agile development of software provide transparency and get complete involvement of their clients. It is challenging to accommodate changes, but not impossible. To reap the benefits, focusing on the sustainability of the software is important than just having a robust generic structure. The use of the Agility framework provides stakeholders transparency while developing the increments. It also gives control over the risk management of every increment that is developed. So, the goal of the organization is to build a consistent and well-integrated increment, which reflects the requirements of the client. The approach can be distinct to every product that is being developed by the organization, as every organization has its own way of doing it, which can make the process easy.

Who Uses Agile Scrum Methodology?

Lately, Scrum is widely used by the software industries around the globe for software development as it is one of the most popular approaches. The software teams use Scrum or Hybrid Scrum methods for agile project management.

The Agile Manifesto

The need of the hour is better and progressed ways of software development which will help the tech industry to a great extent. Through Agile adaptations, organizations can value the following assets.

  • Individuals who contribute rather than the process and tools.
  • The software is valued over the traditional documentation.
  • Customer Satisfaction over contracts and negotiation.
  • Being responsive to change requests over planning.

The Principles of Agile

Involving Customer

The involvement of the customer in the process of development will be close. The importance of their feedback is very much accentuated. They will be the torchbearer for providing requirements, modifications as the development continues; also, customers give the priority and evaluate the system.

Incremental delivery

The software development process is iterative and incremental. Customers specify the requirements required for incremental delivery.

Priority for people

The utilization of team members to their maximum is essential. Their hard work is acknowledged in this process and maintained that people are the assets.

Embracing change

The system requirements keep changing with evolving development. Hence the organizations should be ready for embracing change.

Maintaining simplicity

The focus should be on the simplicity of the software that is developed. There should be an emphasis on eliminating the complexities of the system.
