Agile & Your Team
Is Agile Right for Your Team and Your Business?
Agile is an approach to managing projects that benefits businesses and project teams of all sizes, and in every sector.
It’s most likely that Agile is a good fit for your team, but let’s take a look at some Agile characteristics to consider when deciding on the next steps for your team.
Do your projects tend to have hard-to-define or regularly changing requirements? Agile is designed to respond to change with ease.
Early Value Delivery
If you would like to deliver value early to your stakeholders – and regularly throughout a project cycle – then Agile is the right approach for your business.
Team Roles & Responsibilities
Agile places great value on clearly defined team roles, and a sense of ownership and responsibility to drive the enthusiasm and productivity of a project forward.
All elements of Agile contribute to a greater degree of control over your project. Communication is clearer and more frequent, and priorities are continuously reviewed. The phased approach to handling your project makes it easier to spot any potential risks or productivity blocks.
