Agile Scrum IntroductionAgile and Scrum enables you to
- Respond to changes, while minimizing risk
- Increase ROI (return on investment)
- Continuously improve
Responding to Change while controlling risk
Change happens at a rapid pace. Companies can no longer afford to be complacent and ignore changes in the marketplace and technology. Many companies can potentially respond to changes, but at what cost?
Change is risky and expensive. Change is hard. The cost of change can be prohibitively high. Responding to change at the risk of bankruptcy is of little use. Agile and Scrum enable you to respond to rapid changes in the marketplace while controlling risk.
Higher Return on Investment
Users do not (or rarely) use 60% of the features. But somehow we find a way to keep releasing and maintaining all these. This is just one of the factors that reduces your ROI.
Agile and Scrum provides you with the mechanism to help you deliver the highest value features, and take advantage of the market opportunities now. It enables you to increase productivity and quality without jeoperdizing agility.
More than 70% of IT budgets are spent on maintenance and enhancements while only 29% is spent on innovation and new product creation, according to a recent Forrester study. Low quality products and archaic organizational processes are some of the causes of this.
Agile and Scrum framework forces you to see the issues and problems that are holding you and your company back. With strong emphasis on teamwork and collaboration, Agile and Scrum help you leverage collective intelligence of your company to continuously seek better solutions.
