The decision of an organization to transition to Extreme Programming (XP) and/or Agile Project Management (APM) can lead to unprecedented increases in organizational flexibility and speed. More importantly, delivered customer value can be increased many fold over traditional approaches to software development.
Agile transitions require changes to many parts of an organization, including software developers, technical, project, and product managers, quality assurance (QA), business stakeholders, and even documentation. New skills must be acquired by team members in each of these areas. This often leads to a shift in roles and responsibilities and a realignment and breaking down of team boundaries. Such changes are not made without difficulty and risk. Obtiva coaching and on-site services will make your transition easier and faster.
The most effective transitions to XP/APM are led by outside coaches who can facilitate the adoption of XP/APM best practices in a client’s organization. By building relationships with team members and providing hands-on, “in the trenches” leadership, Obtiva coaches can guide an organization’s transition to a successful conclusion.
Obtiva coaches don’t rely on a “one size fits all” approach to helping clients transition to XP/APM. Each client organization has unique culture, team members with diverse experience and skill, and business goals.
Each Obtiva coaching engagement begins with an exploration phase that includes interviews and reviews of the existing environment and team. Next, a set of recommendations is made and a transition roadmap is presented (in the format of a set of 2-4 week iterations). Once the transition begins, each iteration will end with a retrospective, where the transition roadmap will be re-evaluated and revised.
