Some Agile organizations deliver software very effectively, while others do not. Why? What is the key to effective Agile delivery? At DCG, we believe the keys are:
- A clear focus on value
- Knowledge of the organization’s capabilities and rate of delivery
All software is developed to ultimately increase profits or to make a service more effective. This is the value that the business cares about; thus, development should always maintain a focus on this as well, which can be achieved via estimation.
Value-based estimating at the project level, and quality, sprint-focused estimating in development teams, can work together to ensure delivery for successful business software development in an Agile environment.
