Agile Processes have been enabling the delivery of better quality products for quite some time. More and more companies invest in the process with an organizational commitment in Agile Transformations. Teams are being tasked to deliver quality products more frequently and there is an ongoing thrust for continuous delivery and improvement. If you are working in the Software Industry then you are also expected to be able to work within Agile teams. There is a gap between certification and implementation. That is where PenPositive comes.
Bridging the Gap between Certification and Execution
We are in no way undermining the importance of certification. But just like any other field, in Agile Scrum Implementation there is a gap between certification and execution. The space between the theory and practice that can only be filled by spending time in the trenches, walking the talk, making mistakes and correcting them in a continuous improvement fashion. We bring our expertise to teams and individuals and help in traversing that distance.
What is your unique Story?
We believe that every individual, need and team dynamics is unique and everyone has a unique story that got them there. Your Journey to agility is where we want to start. You might be someone who is planning to be a Scrum Master or you might be one who needs help in preparing for career growth in the Agile space or may be you are part of a team embarking on Agile, we want to know your unique story.
We believe individuals and organizations are all different and one size fits all does not always work. Some teams have the experience of working together for long while some other teams are fairly new. Some organizations have a commitment to Being Agile, Some are not there yet. Some Scrum Masters are Passionate, but for some it is just another Job. The challenges can be different, but the bottom line does not change; Building High Quality Software that is released frequently.
There are Debates; But Agile is about building products not winning debates
Since every company is trying to be (or at least say they do) Agile in one form or other, it is important that as an individual there is an expectation for you to understand how to work in an Agile company. That being said it is also true that every one has their own version of it.
At PenPositive we believe that it is OK for teams to have their own version of being agile as long as they adhere to the core principles and Value Propositions of Being Agile. If your focus is to release workable software more frequently out of the door then rest can be worked on better.
There are always never ending debates on how to estimate, how to size a story, what is an Epic, How do you manage releases, Should Product Owner attend a meeting, Can a PM be a Scrum Master and on and on and on. Bottom line however is, Are you able to ship high quality workable software out of the door frequently?, that’s what matters in the end. If you are not, that is from where you should start and build up.
