Are your customers 100% satisfied when your project is completed? Do you really know how to answer to their needs and where and how to add most value for them? Today, but also in the future?
You want to make sure that you don’t misinterpret your customer’s demands in our fast-moving times. Agile methods can help by focusing all attention back on the customer and their needs. But when used in the wrong context, they are more or less ineffective. The widely used method Scrum, for example, is not equally suitable for every project.
Sometimes less is more. Without a profound understanding of agile project management and potential methods and tools, applying them can be frustrating and a complete waste of time and resources. It may in fact be more effective to complement traditional project work with just a few selected agile techniques. Therefore, understanding which agile method to apply when is key. Learn to judge for yourself and don‘t miss out on any of the great benefits of agile project work.
The Agile Answer
Fail early and fail often! Agile project management refers to a way of thinking and acting that makes projects dynamic and flexible, thus ensuring that the product is the greatest value for the customer.
Transparency and trust are of utmost importance and the customer is the center of attention all of the time. Fast experiments and regular feedback loops make up the majority of the project work, and mistakes are a crucial part of the process that guide the learning process.
We have a variety of agile methods at our disposal to support our clients. Scrum for instance supports self-organized work and iterative, experimental project work. Kanban provides transparency and a clear focus on the identification of problems, visualizes dependencies and optimizes processes. Scrumban effectively combines both methods. Design Thinking is a concept for creative problem solving with the goal of generating as many new ideas as possible and thus achieving real innovation in the end.

Team conflicts can threaten to destroy the team, but they don't have to. Having a strong, neutral facilitator and a process for conflict resolution can reduce tensions and bring you back to solution and doing mode.
