Most enterprises are stuck in old ways of operating, and that can negatively affect a company’s speed and adaptability to change. To be competitive in the digital age, businesses need to achieve agility at scale.
The importance of time, quality, and cost reduction cannot be emphasized enough in today’s IT world. The extremely fast-paced IT world necessitates quick requirements planning and definition, outcome-driven delivery strategies, delivery itself to be uninterrupted and continuous, and at the same time very adaptable and flexible to change – change imposed from the business end as well as those imposed from the technology front.
Agile methodology has helped IT teams world over achieve this, and has helped close the gap between the team of business users, developers, and testers in a single camp, while imbibing a culture that is low on management and highly geared towards execution. Transformations require organizational and cultural change, not just an understanding of a new methodology.
