What if I told you we are experiencing the thrills of a lean startup and the perks of large enterprise?
We have proven it can be done, and not in any old environment, but the highly regulated and governed one that is the financial industry.
Sad to say, Agile has become a marketed commercial solution. This trend has caused us to get away from the essence, roots, and intent of Agile. By nature, Agile is an adaptive methodology that stresses continuous improvement. However, ironically we have somehow managed to sell Agile as a bill of goods that will magically solve the problems of all organizations. The truth is there is no one-size- fits-all framework because every organization is unique and has its own set of challenges.
There are a number of different approaches to adopting agile. The key is finding which blend of agile and lean practices will enable you to achieve your objectives.
Although the “Lean Startup” methodology originated in small start-up environments, its concepts and techniques can be expanded to the corporate enterprise. In fact, many companies are adopting Agile because they are seeking innovation, agility, and a competitive edge. The lean start-up methodology is geared towards achieving these exact objectives and can be setup to work within a large enterprise.
