Deliver on time and improve communication with the business to minimize project failure.

Your Challenge
The Agile evangelists are having trouble converting others to the Agile philosophy.
Your team is facing pressure to deliver projects in a smaller time frame. The Waterfall approach is causing projects to go over budget, misunderstanding of project owners’ expectations, and late delivery to the end-customer.
Projects that get implemented successfully may be susceptible to problems as the software gets older and crucial changes are too expensive.
A consolidation roadmap that is based on an easy-to-implement method will ease the burden on resource and infrastructure maintenance.

Our Advice

Critical Insight
Agile is not suitable for all organizations, or all projects. Carefully select pilot projects that have the greatest chance of success and determine the right requirements or risk significant cost overruns to fix problems or roll back development.
An Agile rollout may require peripheral projects to be accelerated.
Agile will modify internal roles and processes. Get ready for change management.

Impact and Result

Agile will improve communication and transparency between teams and stakeholders, which will lead to higher quality products and fluid team dynamics.
The success of the Agile pilot should be used to build the case for an organizational-wide deployment.
In order for your organization to stay competitive, it must place focus on delivering projects at a quicker pace with the right features.
