How to drive agile adoption… with your client base (part one)
We see the benefits of working agile every day.
This way of working has transformed our operations, and established a path for sustainable growth. We’ve become more responsive to change and less susceptible to the volatility of sudden shifts in the market – like the pandemic.
Agile has meant that we’ve been able to prioritise our people over the processes we follow. We’ve been able to champion flexibility, speed, collaboration, communication and cross-functional setups, to match the strengths of our people.
But – without our team’s backing, this wouldn’t have been the case.
If adoption isn’t handled properly, agile ways of working can cause conflict with clients, and the benefits are derailed by misunderstandings and unfulfilled expectations.
The success of any agile projects hinges on a balance of three factors: scope, budget and time.
If any one of these three variables change, the other two will have to change with it; the scope of a project can’t keep growing without budget or delivery time being adjusted, for example.
In the first instalment of this two-part series, we explore the best practices you should embrace to help keep things on track and drive agile adoption among your team and client base.
