    Experience Report

    Success of an Agile Transformation depends a great deal on how effectively it gets initiated.
    This experience report presentation will discuss a 5-Step approach deployed for successfully initiating an Agile Transformation engagement at a client location.
    The practices that ensured effective identification and execution of two pilot projects will be shared.
    We will also talk about how using a customized version of  Comparative Agility™ Assessment  Framework, the impact of the Agile way of working on these pilot projects was measured.

    The impact of Agile on pilots was presented in terms of quantified measures (metrics) of benefits and areas of improvements to the leadership team. The results were encouraging enough for them to continue with the Agile Transformation exercise by bringing the rest of the projects in the organization into its fold.

    Case Study
    Its been a long journey for Agile in Product Development or support areas. There are well established organizations where the usage of Agile has been remarkable and Orbitz is one of those places.
    Why don’t we hear as much in the BI space when it comes to Agile? This is probably attributed to the ad-hoc nature of BI projects and fluid nature of End Goals. We over the last few years tried to change this perception and leverage the goodness and effectiveness of being Agile in the BI space. BI is so vast that there are different areas where you can bring in the principles and process of Agile. We are incorporating XP, Scrum and Kanban principles to transform the way we do development and support our businesses. We were also successful in incorporating CI within the BI area using tools such as Jenkins, Stash and Git.
    Broadly classifying the BI projects either into Migration or New Development, we could categorize the Characteristics and Challenges faced in BI projects in terms of Business Stakeholders, Budget, Team Composition, Know-How and Execution time. Based on these factors, identifying the right framework of Agile was the key. This helped in zeroing on tools, techniques, methods etc of Agile philosophy and enabled successful completion of projects.
