“Design thinking” or “scrum” are probably the best-known agile methods or frameworks within the agility. Companies which want to survive in the changed macro-economic context regularly ask themselves: “Are we still doing the right thing?” They question their “what?” It is conceived by the “user” before the product is fully developed, as its prospects are the decisive factor. The customer also sees intermediate results instead of just the finished product. In order to be able to react quickly here too, the following questions must be asked. Are our methods still suitable? How do we further develop products and services? How do we develop completely new ones in a volatile context? We therefore question the “how?”
Classic project management frequently comes up against its limits here. If we want to react more quickly, more flexibly and in a more customer-oriented way to changes in the VUCA world, other methods are also required!
“Agile methods” or “frameworks” help not only companies involved in software development. Regardless of which sector you come from, agile methods can help you to operate faster, more flexibly and closer to the customer. Based on fundamental values and principles, which frequently stand in opposition to those traditionally used, the introduction of agile methods may represent a quantum leap for your company.
