Results:

Agile transformation established a product-centric structure and changed the working culture, which led to:

  • 20% increase in product team focus toward single products
  • 20% reduction in project defects

 

Business Challenge:

A Fortune 500 grocery client was facing challenges with planning, executing, and delivering their key business initiatives and were unable to keep up with changing business needs. The waterfall project management methodology practiced by the organization led to:

  • Execution delays created by any changes made to the business requirements document (BRD)
  • Planning delays due to the lack of fluidity in the development team and stakeholder feedback loop
  • Diminishing team motivation and lack of product ownership by team members stemming from project-centric methodology

 

Solution:

An Agile transformation roadmap was created based on the Nisum Enterprise Agile Framework (NEAF). Standard processes and practices were defined with the client and Nisum's Agile experts trained teams on various aspects of Agile adoption - process, technology, and people. This resulted in:

  • Diminished delays from BRD changes due to increased flexibility gained from revised schedule of planning meetings
  • Initiative planning time decreased due to implementing standard processes and practices defined with the client and tailored to the stakeholders’ needs
  • Teams became motivated to deliver successful products, because:
    • Teams became more product-centric with a strong focus on end-to-end delivery
    • Teams were able to define the boundaries of products, which created a sense of ownership for the team members
