Need for this community
IT industry has changed from what it was 20 years back. Some of the major changes observed are
- The industry itself has become very fast paced. The pace at which the changes happen are fast and automatically, the IT systems have to follow suit and need to change and adapt fast.
- The competition is fierce and end users are un-forgiving. Therefore the systems have to be adapted as per customer needs very fast.
- The supplier-customer relationships have also changed. No more are the customers looking at suppliers as vendors. The customers see the vendors more as partners who share the successes and also the failures.
“Change, Change Fast or die” is the mantra of the day. These changes have put tremendous pressure on the IT systems and people.
The traditional way of doing things puts in added pressure on the people to adapt at the same time deliver what has been defined in the contract.
Agile can address most of the issues that the IT Teams and Customers face – and there are already a lot of things which have happened which makes the enablement of Agile much easier than what in 2007-2010.
However, it is also seen that the awareness of Scrum in the market is not that high – especially in India. People still think it is hype. People still think it is just a wrapper over the traditional lifecycle and end up waterfalling the sprints. Lot of effort has to be put in to convince people that there is an alternative way of doing things. The questions asked by fellow practitioners still point towards the distrust of management over people, still point towards contracts and still point towards not having a project manager means heading for disaster.
At the end of the day, we also see people walking out feeling happy that there is something happening which may change their lives. Management and Customers may really trust the team going forward and the team might not hear that dreaded remark that “This is not what I wanted” from the customer after putting in that immense amount of effort and sacrifice of staying away from near and dear ones.
If people share the inspiration and the experiences with each other then it will make a considerable difference to the lives of people and also the satisfaction that they will get by delivering what Customer “really wants”.
