GET STARTED
Agile methodology has become pervasive across all types of business and development contexts. The majority of agile adopters face 3 major issues:
Agile methods are often only adopted from the “bottom up”, resulting in
-Lack of Executive engagement
-Failure to transform the business, as well as the development organization

Increasing rate of hybrid agile implementations, combining both agile and waterfall concepts, in technology sector* poses a number of unanswered strategic and operational questions. *source Global Agile Adoption survey by Forrester, Q2 2015.

­­In order to stay ahead of the competition agile must be scaled from merely team and project management to managing the entire enterprise at the program and portfolio level.

There is no toolset in the market today that addresses these issues and provides adjustments to tune agile implementations for maximum efficiency

Agile Worx ® provides rich, predicitve analytics and metrics with the ability to drill down to “dials and knobs”, to affect change.

About the Textbook

metallurgy1

Agile methodologies have become a popular and widely accepted method for managing software development. However, despite this success, managing agile methods has proven to be a real challenge for most companies, particularly those with complex products such as IoT devices and large development environments. As such, agile methods are changing. Many companies have been forced to adopt a hybrid version of agile and waterfall techniques, and this hybrid approach is fast becoming the norm rather than the exception in the industry.
