Agile Software Development

Using SCRUM ( With Lego Simulation Game )

Agile software development methodologies have become mainstream in the recent years, as the IT industry as well as its customers search for ways to ensure greater success for the software development projects. Scrum is the most widely adopted of the Agile Software Development Methods. Like the other Agile methods, Scrum is not a license to work in an undisciplined way. Rather, through disciplined use of Scrum, an organization can realize the promise of software projects that please the customer, welcome change, and deliver what they promise within their cost and time constraints.

Why Agile Software Development is Essential for
Organisational Success?

Companies face an array of challenges in today’s fast-paced environment. Learning to tackle those challenges head on and come out on top requires letting go of old mindsets and embracing new approaches that help boost your team forward. Here are some of the ways Agile makes itself a necessity in today’s professional environment:

  • Agile’s methodologies follow an iterative process that keeps all concerned parties well informed and in-the-loop at all developmental phases.
  • Agile encourages a collaborative culture in your place of work and embraces face-to-face interactions.
  • Agile involves an approach that gives all team members the same weightage with no clear outranking in any particular setting.
  • All participation is encouraged and the concept of Blame Game is not present. Instead, mistakes are viewed as learning opportunities, that can be learnt from and subsequently avoided in the future.
  • Agile encourages frequent feedback loops and transparency in the proceedings of any work project.
  • Agile’s methodologies allow for innovation and adaptability.
  • Agile encourages diversity of thought and open mindedness in corporate culture.
