What is agile?

The agile methodology began in software development and it is an iterative approach to software and product delivery that develops the software in stages from the beginning of the project. Rather than presenting the finished software in a big launch, it is delivered in small increments, considering customer needs in the process.

 

Through two-week “sprints”, the software or product can be closely monitored and improved to achieve customer satisfaction. The agile project management method welcomes changes in the process, even if it’s late in production. This helps decrease the chances of problems surfacing later on, as the regular evaluation process ensures issues are resolved as they appear.

 

Tasks are completed by cross-functional teams, separating tasks into different departments to optimise workflow. Any roadblocks are discussed and resolved through team member negotiation and transparency,  the agile approach.

 

Agile is beneficial for more industries than software development, such as project management. The agile method increases flexibility, productivity, transparency and stakeholder engagement. It delivers higher quality products, and decreases the risk of missing objectives or issues.

What are the different agile methodologies?

There are many different types of agile practices underneath the overarching umbrella term. They are often used in conjunction to maximise company efficiency, with the two most popular methods being scrum and kanban.

 

Scrum: The agile scrum development methodology is one of the most popular agile methods. Scrum involves roles for project development team members, such as scrum master and product owner. The scrum master constantly communicates with the agile team in daily meetings, tracking the progress of tasks with comprehensive documentation. They ensure that each sprint has a suitable workload, with a backlog of tasks to get through. 

 

The scrum method focuses on continuous improvement, meeting goals and delivering quality work, adjusting priorities so that the most important tasks receive the attention required. 

 

Kanban: The kanban method visually manages and tracks the development of projects. ‘Kanban’ translates to “visual board” from Japanese, connected to the idea of “just in time” manufacturing. The kanban board aims to assist with the agile principle of continuous delivery.

 

The kanban agile methodology oversees projects through a ‘Kanban Board’, a board divided into columns to illustrate the process of each task and how far it has come along. Through having the whole developmental procedure and jobs underway in front of them, team members working on the project can easily see what is being completed, and what needs to be done.

Are there any prerequisites to study agile?

There are no prerequisites to study agile. Agile processes are for those already working in project management and seeking new ways to improve their productivity and refine their skills. An agile course is also beneficial for those starting out at a company that utilises the agile method, or even for those who are just starting out in project management.
