HOW TO BENEFIT FROM AGILE METHODS WITHOUT BECOMING DEPENDENT ON THEM.
When embarking on a digital transformation journey, it’s been acknowledged that not only technology but also people and process side of delivery needs to change. Therefore, many organisations adopt new ways of working, agile methods and tools. Since the Agile manifesto was introduced, we have also learnt that one size does not fit all and even the best known framework doesn’t always deliver the expected results. So how can we go about choosing the right method that suits our context, our team size and product we’re building? What direction shall we take to benefit from the new methods and tools the most and embrace the new way of working? The answers to these questions will help us define the approach and direction we may need to take in order to transform our businesses inside out.
