“There is no Silver Bullet for Being Agile.” Project/ product development teams might be doing scrum religiously by having fixed-duration sprints, following ceremonies without fail, having time boxed stand-ups, creating artifacts as prescribed but, these may not be enough for being agile. A team that focuses too much on 'Scrum as a process framework' emphasizing on ceremonies and events in letter-and-spirit, rather than following it with the intention of achieving agility; often fails to achieve the desired end results. It requires a team to engage in a disciplined approach throughout the product/ project delivery lifecycle to enhance its agility, productivity,…

Agile software development has been widely accepted and is being preferred over traditional waterfall method due to multiple benefits ranging from optimal productivity, reduced delivery cycle and decreased time-to-market to increased feedback loops, better visibility and enhanced customer satisfaction. Agile methods like Scrum help to incrementally deliver a software product to end-users regularly, early and often. But, do we always give a conscious thought on whether the software that is being developed at certain cadence is of real use to the customer or whether the end-users would really use the product features released? Have we ever wondered if the users…

Hello Friends, Can you expect a better performance and comfort just by placing accessories and without upgrading the engine of your car? The answer is a resounding No! Similarly, you will not be able to get the benefit of adopting a new technology platform unless you change the execution methodology. That’s the prime reason for adopting agile. Despite adopting agile best practices, the desired result is still far away. This failure in implementation reflects the superficial manner in which we are trying to apply Agile. Agile should not be viewed just as a project management technique or a SDLC Methodology,…

Disruption is the current talk of the town; the key word being 'Intelligent Automation'. Are manual jobs going to become redundant in the next 5 years? The swift and sudden advent of disruptive automation makes a lot of us anxious about the future. So is disruption really a bad thing? An interesting perspective to this is the fact which states, that Evolutions till date, have always been preceded by massive Disruptions. Human beings for instance evolved from Dryopithecus (ape like chimpanzee) to the modern man - from 4 legs to 2 - Total disruption. The discovery of zero, electricity, and…

It is amazing to see the extent to which some of the top players in the industry have explored this arena. Simply put, RPA and Artificial Intelligence, aims to replace humans with a la mode software solutions. This, however, is not to be construed as a simple 'cost cutting' initiative. The increasing demand to look through loads of 'Unstructured' pieces of data, within a short span of time and turn out the…

The umbrella of automation is very wide and is achieved as a result of elimination of human effort by a predictable response triggered by a technological substitute, typically a 'Robot'. We have seen multiple applications of Robots in mundane/complex/unpalatable human tasks across industries. The applications usage widely ranges from the assembly lines of automotive giants to the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) drones in the war fields. While the former case of…

Recruitment is like cooking. Just like a Chef shifts through his stock of ingredients to pick the right raw material & the best ingredients to cook a gourmet meal, a recruiter needs to do the same in order to 'hire the right'. It's all about making the connect - An acknowledgement mail, a small thank you note or a pleasant smile goes a long way. Remember, we are largely interacting with the Millennials. They are different. They love attention. And very rightly so. The things/media/exposure they get from an early age makes them different. Millennials are all about making the…
