Agile delivery provides flexibility and speed to market by breaking down a product or a service to the ‘Minimum Viable Product’. Critical to success is making sure the business and delivery teams work together, stay focused on goals, manage changing priorities and drive productivity to deliver a better product. This will improve morale, drive efficiency and, improve the overall delivery success for the business.
Agile is about placing the end-customer at the centre of delivery and ensuring all work is considered from the perspective of the value the digital service or product adds to their customers and business.
Many perceive agile as applicable solely to software development and even then, frequently ‘smoke and mirrors’ that often flatters to deceive. However, Project One’s experience has demonstrated that agile approaches can be used to deliver effective transformation across a spectrum of environments. Importantly, agile is simply a delivery mindset.
Keep it simple and focus on the outcome. Start with the user needs and focus on the iterative delivery until you meet the point of ‘done’. Remember to keep showing your product to your users and your sponsors, listen to their feedback and improve based on real insights, not assumptions.
