Traditionally at O² we had used waterfall development techniques and struggled to get products to the market on time and react quickly to customer demands and changing business needs.
After we introduced Agile we managed to produce a brilliant product in half the time it would have normally taken as well as improving engagement with the wider business.
The best thing about agile for me is that it’s much closer to the customer than to internal committees which slow things down. It allowed us to respond more quickly to changing internal and customer requirements and removed analysis paralysis.
Before introducing Agile into our business we had a number of issues. We had issues with quality control, we lacked a clear prioritised roadmap and developer utilisation was very variable.
Since our work with sprintgoals the work the development team carries out is far more visible, it’s become much easier to prioritise work and the quality is steadily improving. The team have learned new skills and the whole business has been taken on a journey of agile transformation and are engaged and excited about the products we are building.
