Agile Project Management

With Scrum and Agile Teams towards an Agile Organisation

With the application of the Agile Project Management methodology, Agile and Lean become complementary in product development to create new products and services with adaptive teams working with a hybrid approach to designing, testing and refining concepts to translate them into successful products, reducing costs and time to market.

For a company with multiple products and multiple markets, with multiple projects to be carried out at the same time, having a “day-to-day” management system, enabling project teams to cope with the high variability of work, is not enough. There is a need for a structured approach such as Lean, which, with its standardisation of tools, processes and systems, makes it possible to always keep an eye on business needs.

The role of Agile becomes crucial in the transition from a functional organisation to a project-based organisation. It is at this time of transition that the company, faced with the need to become faster, adopts an agile methodology. This can be a great support for any organisation facing phases of change or major discontinuity.

The advantages of applying the Agile Project Management methodology are:

Higher productivity and lower cost

  • Agile projects tend to have higher productivity and lower costs due to less waste and reduced rework costs.
  • This is mainly due to the tendency to prevent waste by developing only what is absolutely essential for the customer.

Increased stakeholder satisfaction

  • Greater adaptability ensures better stakeholder satisfaction.
  • Stakeholders like flexibility and this reflects changes in the market.

Rapid feedback

  • Greater emphasis on rapid feedback.
  • Stakeholders have a better idea of what they will receive and can provide relevant input.

Faster time to market

  • Teams deliver projects incrementally and ensure faster time-to-market.

  • Incremental release reduces the cost of delay and increases business value.

Clear set of acceptance criteria

  • A clear set of acceptance criteria and the definition of “done” guarantee high quality in agile projects.
  • Time is used to understand the acceptance criteria of a story and ensure that the team focuses on what the customer is looking for.
  • The definition of done is used to agree on the completion criterion for a task.

Better employee involvement

  • Improved employee involvement promotes job satisfaction through sustainable pace and self-organisation. This helps to provide high quality products.

  • Self-organisation enables and empowers the team to decide on a delivery approach

Innovation should be designed with this in mind, with adaptability and flexibility, considering that while creating and developing new products and services, companies and the market are already moving forward.
