How is it possible to implement the project, which normally takes 6-7 months having almost twice shorter deadline?
TEBIN has faced with the challenge of implementation the greenfield industrial project of large tire manufacture plant for the international Client in extremely short terms. Inspired by progressive software industry, which works efficiently doing twice the work in half the time using agile methodologies, TEBIN also stepped into adaption these iterative approaches to our engineering realities.
HOW IT WORKS
The most challenging in agile transformation is a change in people’s mindset. Until they think in waterfall way, doing their own tasks seeing no overall picture, using agile tools and methods are not efficient enough. TEBIN follows the main idea, which is to perform work collaborating and communicating transparently within the Team on a daily basis. Instead of emailing to and fro, people should see changes and actions required in real time.
AGILE IN PRACTICE
There are 4 SCRUM events which covers Agile iterative approach in practice:
Sprint Planning. Project members are planning the activities to be executed during this period pulling out the tasks with the highest priority from the product backlog, which is a high-level list of activities enough to perform the project.
Daily SCRUM. The team gathers on a daily basis for 15 min to discuss 3 important questions: What was done yesterday? What is going to be done today? Which obstacles the team face with?
Demo. The client gives a feedback of the project increment, which is the most important and valuable attribute of the event.
Retrospective. The team reviews once again the result of the sprint and estimate if the sprint goal is achieved.
The procedure is repeating iteratively until the product is ready.
BENEFITS FOR CLIENTS
Client’s engagement. Client is highly involved in every step of the project, collaborating closely with the TEAM;
Transparency. Client is seeing the work in progress, involved throughout the project from the planning to the review sessions;
Early and regular delivery. Client is seeing the new product increments frequently, with high level of predictability;
Possibilities for changes. Agile provides an opportunity to constantly refine and reprioritize the overall product backlog. New or changed backlog items can be planned for the next sprint, providing the opportunity to introduce changes within a few weeks;
Focus on business value. TEAM allows the Client to determine the priority of tasks/epics;
Continuous improvement. Reviewing regularly work done during the retrospective session, the TEAM improves the process project execution.
