Per the Agile Business Consortium, business agility allows businesses to adapt quickly to market changes; respond rapidly and flexibly to customer demands; adapt and lead change in a productive and cost-effective way without compromising quality; and continuously be at a competitive advantage. The primary reason for moving to Agile is to achieve faster business value and keep you ahead of the competition. Agile is built for change - fundamentally, it is about creating Business Agility. It enables the enterprise to deliver projects more efficiently, with relentless focus on business value and providing the highest return on investment. Whether it is a software project, a new service offering or a new product, Agile’s twelve principles and three pillars (transparency, inspection, adaptation) are designed to reduce money spent on undesirable or unusable features which were built based on outdated requirements.

Software development projects have undergone remarkable changes with the arrival of agile development approaches. Although intended for small, self-managing teams, these approaches are today used for large development programs. A major challenge of such programs is coordinating many teams. This case study describes the coordination of knowledge work in a large-scale agile development program with 12 teams. The findings highlight coordination modes based on feedback, the use of a number of mechanisms, and how coordination practices change over time. The findings can improve the outcomes of large knowledge-based development programs by tailoring coordination practices to needs over time.

Topic Teasers Vol. 131: Where Does the BA Fit Into My Project?

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: Last week, I was told that there will now be a business analyst (BA) working with my project team. To be honest, we have all the roles filled.

Can I refuse to accept this person into the group?

Topic Teasers Vol. 122: Can I Say This About Agile?

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: I work in an environment where the scrum version of agile, which is evidently great for some organizations, just doesn’t work. Can I say this about agile, as I know it is the hot, new approach to projects? It’s just that there are some industries where, from what I read about this strategy, it is a great philosophy…but the actual steps to do it don’t quite fit. Is there any alternative to rejecting the whole methodology?
