Discuss Agile Network 2017: Making Agile Work in "Outsourcing Context"

March 7, 2017


Presenter: Scott W. Ambler   

Discuss Agile Network, a community sponsored by iZenBridge, was proud to host this meet up! Participants shared the evening with Scott W. Ambler and other Agile Coaches and Consultants discussing issues related to using Agile in IT outsourcing context.

Most of the Indian IT companies are in IT services business whereas most of the Agile practices are targeted towards product companies. Indian IT professionals see many contradictions when it comes to using Agile based approaches, here are some examples

➨ Many Agile practices recommends following the Product approach over Project, whereas Indian outsourcing companies still follow project life cycle approach.
➨ Agile practices stress on trusting the team members whereas team members working in service organizations still has to submit detailed time sheets. Outsourcing companies’ still need effort based metrics.

➨ Agile practices recommend long living team whereas Indian companies operate in high attrition environment.

These are just few, we may have hundreds of such contradictions, now the question comes: “How Agile Values and Practices can be implemented in Indian Context?” In this event Scott W. Ambler, a leading voice in making Agile work in Enterprise and Outsourcing Context, will facilitate discovery of solutions of these contradictions. 

The event is planned in Group coaching format, which means Scott will coach the group on issues related to using Agile in IT outsourcing context.
