An approach to Agile that delivers

Technology: Agile

While Agile is increasingly popular and offers many benefits, ensuring it delivers what you actually need is not guaranteed

The increasingly popular Agile approach to software development and technology project delivery has been used by Triad consultants in countless instances to speed up delivery and increase quality. Not only does it allow flexibility that can reflect changing business needs, it strives to create production-ready deliverables earlier than other methods, thus enabling a more rapid return on investment to occur.

The foundation of an Agile approach is delivering functionality quickly and incrementally enabling early feedback. This reduces the risk, compared with a big bang approach, because the product is being continuously assessed against business needs.

Triad is finding that, with the increased use of Agile, there is a constant demand to impress and improve, rather than simply succeed in the procurement and expect clients to wait and pray that the project delivers months or years into the future.

Agile insists on collaboration to share knowledge and experience, and raises awareness of activities underway for both technology and business teams. From this stems extensive re-use of skills, experience and budget – enabling not only the streamlining of IT processes but also the organisation’s whole approach to change management.

A new intranet on time and under budget

Triad helped Addaction, a counselling and support service helping those affected by addiction to drugs and alcohol, rebuild its intranet and link the 50% of its workforce that volunteers more closely into the fabric of its national initiatives.

“Initially there was a definite nervousness and some skepticism about using an Agile approach, but Triad’s management of the scope and in particular the associated commercials has ensured that every penny spent has been on functionality most important to the business. If we had tried to define that functionality at the start of the project, we would not have got the same SharePoint solution we have today”
