Managing with Agile in your organisation
Agile methodologies are a new approach to management. They involve the development and implementation of new principles, practices, and values. They represent a radical departure from traditional command-and-control management. Agile methods are used by many organisations. Some examples include National Public Radio, which uses them to develop its new programming, and John Deere, which produces new machines. Other examples include Saab, a leader in producing new fighter jets. Agile methodologies are also used by Mission Bell Winery, a company that uses them in everything from wine production to human resources.
How The Scrum Method Works?
Scrum is a framework that helps teams work together. Much like a rugby team (where it gets its name) training for the big game, scrum encourages teams to learn through experiences, self-organise while working on a problem, and reflect on their wins and losses to continuously improve.
While the scrum I’m talking about is most frequently used by software development teams, its principles and lessons can be applied to all kinds of teamwork. This is one of the reasons scrum is so popular. Often thought of as an agile project management framework, scrum describes a set of meetings, tools, and roles that work in concert to help teams structure and manage their work.
Agile methodologies include agile project management, which emphasises a flexible and iterative approach to the creation of products. The approach prioritises the product backlog in manageable epics and allows teams to respond quickly to change. While traditional project management methods fix requirements to control cost and time, Agile is more flexible and responsive to changing requirements. Agile project management methodologies include Scrum, Kanban, Extreme Programming, and Adaptive Project Framework.
