Any project manager or IT leader takes note of the learning they have gained throughout their career, and take advantage of it to get the most out of their work teams, with the aim of optimizing the resources available for the development of digital projects in time and under the defined requirements.
What is not always mastered is the fact that the work methodology applied for the development of a digital project may be different from that required for another. In other words, it depends on the work team involved, the nature of the project itself and even the preferences of the team requesting the project (internal or external client).
Nowadays there are two methodologies very well positioned thanks to the excellent results they yield every time they are applied: Scrum and Agile. Both have very well defined characteristics that help achieve goals and that can make the difference between a successful process and one full of obstacles. The delivered result can be the same, no doubt, but it is also important that the process itself flows correctly to avoid saturating the team involved.
So you can choose which methodology is ideal for the development of a digital project, we present you its main characteristics:
It is a framework used mainly by teams that manage complex projects, in which each member knows perfectly their functions and due times, which helps the work flow quickly to achieve a delivery in a short period of time to launch the platform and start generating sales.
Its structure is based on three pillars:
As always happens in digital matters, this methodology is not applicable to all teams and all developments. What factors must be considered then for its implementation?
If after this you still doubt whether Scrum is the right methodology, read on, because we are talking about Agile, a methodology whose advantages may sound similar, but offers a different dynamic for development, which provides other benefits.
The cornerstone of Agile is to avoid the rigidity of waterfall methods that plan each step of the process so that, when something unforeseen arises, reacting takes longer and involves completely restructuring the workflow from that point on. In simple terms, Agile seeks to maintain the ability to evaluate each stage in order to make the best decision at each step, without compromising project objectives and timelines.
More than a methodology, Agile is more of a philosophy, since it involves requirements that must be inculcated in work teams to get the most out of their work:
What are the main factors to evaluate to decide on Agile?
