A Practical Approach to Agile Adoption - Case Studies from Egypt by Amr Noaman and Mohamed Amr

818 views

Published on

Agile Adoption is a big organization transition project. A big bang approach to Agile Adoption involves real risks and may lead to failure. Instead, small, continuous, and valuable improvements are more viable for most organizations. In this interactive session, we will start with an overview of the Agile mindset, values and principles, and will highlight the major differences between Agile and traditional approaches to managing software projects. Then, we will explain our approach for adopting agile which is incremental and iterative in nature. Finally, we will present some case studies and will share some interesting observations and conclusions collected through working with more than 40 companies during the last 6 years.

  3. 3. 3 Who we worked with… The Waterfall Lifecycle 6 “I Believe in this concept, but the implementation described above is risky and invites failure” -- Winston W. Royce, proposing the waterfall model for the first time!
  4. 4. 4 Many SW projects are like a cannon ball Henrik Kniberg Assumptions: • The customer knows what he wants • The developers know how to build it • Nothing will change along the way Agile is like a homing missile Henrik Kniberg Assumptions: • The customer discovers what he wants • The developers discover how to build it • Things change along the way
  5. 5. 5 10 Agile Manifesto www.agilemanifesto.org ”We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work we have come to value:” Individuals and interactions over processes and tools Working software over comprehensive documentation Customer collaboration over contract negotiation Responding to change over following a plan That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.
  6. 6. 6 Principles behind the Agile Manifesto 1. Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software. 2. Welcome changing requirements,even late in development.Agile processes harness change for the customer's competitive advantage. 3. Deliver working software frequently,from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preferenceto the shorter timescale. 4. Business people and developers must work togetherdaily throughout the project. 5. Build projects around motivated individuals.Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done. 6. The most efficientand effective method of conveying information to and within a developmentteam is face-to-face conversation. 7. Working softwareis the primary measure of progress. 8. Agile processes promote sustainable development.The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constantpace indefinitely. 9. Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility. 10. Simplicity– the art of maximizing the amount of work not done – is essential. 11. The best architectures,requirements, and designs emerge from self- organizing teams. 12. At regular intervals,the team reflects on how to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts its behavior accordingly. A mindset is the established set of attitudesheld by someone • Welcome Change • Failing Early • Build and Feedback loops • Continuous Delivery • Value-Driven Development • Small value-add slices • Learn through Discovery • Continuous Improvement Agile is a mindset Established through 4 values [that in the software world is] Grounded by 12 principles, & Manifested through many many different practices
