Being Agile rather than Doing Agile
Most of us have somehow been in contact with certain aspects of the Agile methodology. Some of you may have a more or less successful implementation or are in the middle of evaluating the additional benefits over the traditional approach. Or maybe you are just reluctant due to diverging experiences in the press. But at the end of the day we all have the same question, does Agile work for my requirements and if yes how can I take an advantage of the Agile practices and optimize it to the Excellence.
Here, we would like to share our experience of an Agile journey with internationally distributed teams in the Energy sector. Our way to a practical adaptation of Agility considers different project types and work styles. How understanding what Agile really means and how using a well composed set of Agile practices adjusted to our individual needs, helped us to overcome our day to day challenges with a new and tailored approach.
