Benefits associated with an Agile Transition – What can Scrum do for you?
- Scrum exposes and makes visible the organizational issues in project delivery, which are not necessarily exclusive to agility (non-dedicated projects resources, difficulty of co-locating project members, etc.);
- Positive impact on the role of the managers by moving from a command-and-control mode to coach-leader mode;
- Not just doing things right but doing the right things;
- Increased mobilization of project participants;
- Better team synergy – increased synergy between Business and IT;
- Puts the business needs at the center of the project team’s focus – business needs understood and shared by the team members;
- Brings back the “common sense” in carrying out the project;
- Better communication and transparency within teams;
- Better visibility on the business value generated by the project;
- Optimization of the investment;
- Ability to “test” the feasibility before fully developing the solution.
These are only a handful of benefits. What benefits have your team witnessed since starting Scrum?
