Agile in Construction



I know this subject might have been discussed previously but again, I am interested to specifically know to what degree does Agiel apply in Construction & Real Estate Developments ?

Please share your professional opinion. Thanks !

God Save Us....(hehehehe). Let me today example: when we have to open a new office or when we have to do something in some place with a component of construction we use Scrum in my actual work place.

Sergio, for some reason, I knew you will be one of the first few people to comment (hehehe) - Thanks for the feedback.

Hmmm Scrum & Construction work together ? Not sure I fully understood.

May God Save Everyone :-)

Hehehehe. Yes, it works. In our case it is part of a whole process that start with requirements and ends with implementation. Take into account something: each iterative-incremental process performs waterfall at "quantum level" (micro level).

Interesting - Thanks Sergio - Cheers



Rami -

I imagine a similar discussion was held a few decades back when proponents of lean were trying to push its usage outside of manufacturing.

Organizational agility and the values & principles in the Manifesto came apply (with very slight re-wording) to any domain. Specific agile methodologies and practices might need to be adapted or may not fit a given domain.

While there might be physical constraints to how continuously or early value can be delivered, this is no different than what you'd experience with applying agile to a legacy technology environment in a large traditional enterprise.

The lessons of scaling agile would help to adapt its usage in construction.

Thanks Kiron - So I understand that it is just like PMBOK, you tailor it to suit your projects requirements.



I forgot to write my classical comment: remember that Agile is not a method, is not a process. Is like Lean implementation. You can use Agile into any field. You have to think into architecture: you have an approach, you have life cycle models based on that approach, you have life cycle process based on that models, you have methods based on that process, you have tools to support the methods. You can mix the layers as best fits for your initiative without forget one rule: low coupling and high cohesion.

Thanks Sergio - Oh, I totally remember the classical sentence :-) Interesting enough, when you google Agile, it gives you Agile Methodology while it is a process.

More than that, it's a mindset. This is why I drew the parallel to the quality movement. Once you start thinking agile, you see opportunities to apply agility in ANY context.

Think Neo once he starts seeing The Matrix for what it really is :-)
