Prove Agile Transformation Value - While long touted as the answer to responsive, fast and customer-centric development, organizations are struggling to justify the investment to transform to Agile Development. Organizations that have spent numerous years and resources to adopt Agile are taking a step back to understand if the investment has delivered – and at the end of the day, many simply don’t know.Partners from Boston Consulting Group’s (BCG) Agile Transformation practice indicate that clients now want to establish a baseline view of development team performance and to monitor improvements during the transformation. “Agile is great when the ten smartest developers in your company are doing it, but scaling it to the rest of the organization is challenging,” said a member of BCG’s Agile Transformation practice. “There are issues about productivity and quality, and so analytics gives us a way to measure this.”
Agile is not globally applicable. Software analytics offers a way to keep pace with Agile development cycles while creating a view into the quality, maintainability and technical risk of the work delivered. This is the type of insight and solution that is needed to responsibly move forward with Agile Transformation.
