Agile Development Resources
LPL Software Consulting provides experienced Agile development and testing resources on a contract basis. These team members have been coached/trained on Agile development and have been part of a team that has implemented a large-scale Agile software development project.
While on-site at your organisation, the resources will continue to have expert support/coaching to help them through any adoption issues that you may be experiencing. You are not just hiring an individual, but you are bringing on resources that are Agile evangelists who will continue to gain new, leading edge knowledge by attending regular Sydney-based Agile events and have access to expert advice on a regular basis through LPL Consulting.
LPL Software Consulting can help with coaching and managing your project to ensure it is successful. There are many factors to take into account when determining which methodology is the right fit for your organisation which may include: the ability to introduce change, the level of trust of the software vendor, levels of approval required, autonomy of the team.
Benefits of Agile
Agile enables your organisation to more effectively deal with change within a project. Development begins as soon as possible, enabling the team to identify issues early and adjust the plan accordingly.
Agile software development significantly increases the likelihood of an on-schedule solution possibly at the cost of reduced scope. LPL Consulting can assist with selling this concept to management, which is an important aspect of introducing the methodology.
Agile development is typically used for basic software development but is being introduced more and more on implementation projects if it is the right fit for an organisation. With agile, build starts almost immediately with limited planning. The work is divided into iterations and the solution is demonstrated to the business users throughout.
