Real-Life Citizen Development Case Studies
This month we are bringing you real-life stories on how citizen development can have a huge impact on the employees of an organization—in particular the satisfaction, enjoyment and fulfillment they experience from their day-to-day working lives.
Join PMI, Pipefy, Toca, Kianda and Google for the second edition of the PMI Citizen Developer Partner Perspective where we bring you valuable insights, perspectives and experiences from leaders of the citizen development movement. Moderating the session: The Citizen Developer’s Role in Digital Transformation Projects, is Dalibor Ninkovic, Manager of Citizen Developer at PMI. Dali will be giving our audience a short introduction into citizen development and the PMI Citizen Developer practice before jumping into speaker introductions. Dali will be joined by low-code and no-code industry leaders Ananth Avva, President COO at Pipefy, Frank Weigel General Manager of Google Cloud’s Business Application Platform at Google, Frank Weigel GM for Google Appsheet. Mat Rule CEO and Founder at Toca and Derya Sousa, COO and Co- founder at Kianda. The panel will discuss increasing digital demands and digital transformation projects, the important role the Project Manager plays in the success of these projects and how citizen development can have a positive impact on culture. The second discussion topic will focus on using citizen development to bridge the digital skills gap and empower IT and non-IT professionals to create custom solutions, the guardrails that need to be in place to safely adopt citizen development and the increase in job satisfaction this technology can have on individuals.
Citizen developers are employees with little or no IT skills who create online applications and mobile apps using approved point-and-click app builder tools. According to Gartner's (an IT consulting firm) research, by 2025, over 70% of organizations will use citizen-developed applications. According to Mendix's (another IT consulting firm) 2021 survey of 2,025 IT professionals in six countries, in organizations that use no-code/low-code platforms, 56% of employees use citizen-developed apps. Thirty-three percent of organizations surveyed use citizen-developed apps for mission-critical operations. In addition, No-code/low-code projects reduce software application costs by 53% while delivering the applications 56% faster than traditional software projects.| Many citizen developers are skilled in business analysis, marketing, or business strategy. They have excellent critical thinking skills and analytical skills. However, citizen developers can be more effective if they acquire design thinking, agile project management, and product development/management, collaboration, customer education, and stakeholder management skills. My presentation will describe how to build a capabilities academy focused on essential knowledge, skills, and attitudes to help citizen developers create and deliver valuable no-code/low-code digital applications.
