Enterprise Agile

Enterprise agile is all about improving the way how a company is working to achieve one common objective in the long run. It has got the ability to create a strong impact on the overall success and effectiveness of an organization. We often see how the software development companies are sticking to agile methodologies because of the positive results that they can experience out of the methodology.

When implementing enterprise agile within a workplace, the very first step would be to begin with a MVP or a minimum viable product. Then it is possible to release the MVP and get feedback on it. Based on the feedback, it is possible to make appropriate changes, which will preserve the good features and save engineering time.

At the time of developing enterprise agile environment, it is important to focus on creating a single product backlog. It is the responsibility of the product manager to create this backlog and maintain it. Then you will be able to quickly spot what the high priority tasks are. Along with that, you can bring the high priority tasks down in the timeline.

It is important for a collaborative culture to be present within a company for enterprise agile to deliver the best possible results. For example, the product owner, tester and developer should get together and review the features and requirements that exist on the backlog.  Then the tester will be able to explain potential problems whereas the developer will be able to explain the implementation process.

It a large-scale agile framework is used, it will be possible to get the best out of enterprise agile. Some of the most prominent frameworks that are using in large scale enterprises out there in the world include Large Scale Scrum, Disciplined Agile Delivery and Scaled Agile Framework.
