In IT, innovations succeed each other in rapid pace. Users are becoming increasingly demanding and programmes are becoming ever more complex. In order to respond to these challenges and to make IT projects a success, Agile is a popular option. But how do you switch to Agile? And what role does Scrum play?
What are Agile and Scrum?
Agile is an iterative way of developing software. An agile approach assumes that the world changes during the development process and tries to incorporate these changes as effectively as possible. Where a traditional approach eliminates changes as much as possible, Agile embraces them.
Scrum works with multidisciplinary teams in iterations of two to four weeks. During this so-called 'Sprint' the purpose is to provide the client with a working piece of software. Within Scrum, development of the process and the employees is an important part.
Integrating Agile in your organisation
But how do you integrate Agile and Scrum into your organisation? Teams work in a certain way and the introduction of Agile's thinking demands a culture breakthrough for both your employees and your organisation structure. Calco has extensive experience with Agile and Scrum. For example, the MasterClass training course is organised according to Scrum, and MasterClass Professionals are certified as Professional Scrum Master l by the end of their specialisation. As a result, MasterClass Professionals can be deployed as Agile Coach or Scrum Master to help you integrate this way of working.
In addition, Calco can help you implement Agile and Scrum in your organisation through a workshop to your employees. During this workshop, the use of Agile and Scrum will be explained. Practical examples, combined with theory, will make your employees acquainted with the Agile way.
