Get Started with Agile.

You want to meet your goals. But, it’s not easy. Do you experience quality issues, budget misses and delays in the delivery of your products? Eliminate challenges by introducing agile and create an organization that delivers what your customers need, when they need it.

What is Agile?

Agile is more than a methodology. It’s a mindset that changes how you deliver value to your customers—one that transforms market strategy into marketable innovation. When you’re agile, the right people will get access to the right information, faster than ever before. You’ll remove the barriers that separate your teams. And you’ll transform app delivery from an end result into a continuous, evolving part of your business. So you’ll be poised to create change, not just react to it.

Which agile methodology is right for you?

Starting down the agile path can be a bit intimidating at first. Let’s start with choosing which methodology works for you. The two of the most commonly used for teams just starting out are Scrum and Kanban.

 

What is Scrum?

Scrum is extremely common among many agile teams. It focuses on collaboration and work increments, and in that regard is similar to Kanban. Scrum differs in how work is divided up into time periods or time boxes. Scrum also follows a set of rules and every individual on the team has a role and responsibility. The typical Scrum team is 5-9 people and includes a product owner, Scrum master and several team members. The team commits to the work to be done during a particular set of time and they work collaboratively and cross-functionally to finish in the specified time frame.

 

What is Kanban?

Coming from the Japanese word for “visual signal” or “card,” like Scrum, Kanban also breaks work down into smaller, more manageable chunks of work. It differs from Scrum in the way it does not break work into specific time boxes, the way it prioritizes and breaks work into manageable piece. Kanban uses a board to visualize and keep track of the work and its flow through the team, and to also reduce the amount of work in progress. Commitments are optional for a Kanban team, as are time periods. In general, Kanban is more fluid and does not follow many strict guidelines or rules.
