Remember, Agile is more than just Scrum
You can’t make the switch to Agile overnight. If you have been working in a plan-driven environment for years, Agile methods will look and feel very different. As a result, your foray into the Agile world can take different forms. It’s up to you to choose the best tools for you. And then? To accompany this agile transformation, our experts are sharing 5 tips to ease the adoption of an agile tool within your organization.
Kanban: Speed up and streamline flows
Kanban is designed to streamline a continuous flow of work. With a visual display of work in progress and bottlenecks, Kanban boards have the power to transform day-to-day tasks so that you can streamline your workflow and focus on what’s hot, whether you are in software development, IT, human resources, or sales. Tuleap Kanban boards are helpful and easy-to-use tools both Agile and non-Agile teams will appreciate.
But keep in mind that Kanban is about more than just moving cards from one column to another! Kanban is also much more than a basic to-do list like Trello. And yet, many project management tools go no further, missing opportunities to boost efficiency.
Scrum: Time-box flows to deliver essential value
Scrum is a framework for Agile project management that uses fixed-length iterations of work. Scrum is widely used by software and non-software development teams alike. Tuleap provides a unique set of features designed to make Scrum implementation painless. Highly-customizable Tuleap Scrum tools can be implemented easily at multiple levels of your organization, whether you are small team or a large enterprise.
- Simple drag and drop interface
- Backlog management with fast prioritization
- Release & Sprint Planning with estimated effort and team capacity
- Burnup, burndown, and velocity charts
- Stand-up cardwall
- On-the-fly Epic, Story, Task, and Subtask creation
- Integrated with all Tuleap tools for end-to-end traceability
A mixed Agile approach in a single project workspace
In actual practice, it is rare for an organization to use just one Agile approach. It is far more common to combine a variety of techniques. Tuleap lets you use Scrum schedules and Kanban boards together in a single project workspace.
Hybrid Waterfall-Agile for when all-Agile is not possible
For whatever reason, it may not be possible for your organization to implement all-Agile approaches. Tuleap supports a hybrid Agile approach that combines Agile concepts with non-Agile methods.
Get all of the Agile advantages of continuous development and testing
To reap the benefits of Agile software development, you need to be Agile through all phases of the software development lifecycle. Continuous development is an iterative software development process. It is an umbrella that encompasses several other methods including coding, continuous integration, continuous testing, continuous delivery, and continuous deployment.
Tuleap offers software teams an integrated development chain and provides a high level of integration with popular open source tools as Git, Jenkins or Gerrit as well as tools native to Tuleap.
Try, measure, and improve to transition to Agile
Tuleap Agile tools will help your teams improve their workflows, day after day. With Tuleap, you can choose which tools to implement now, depending on where you are currently in your Agile transition and where you want to go. Tuleap provides reporting and metrics to support continuous improvement, helping you adapt to change and make data-driven decisions.
Choose an agile future-proof solution that will support you today and tomorrow
If you are just getting started with Agile, you may be wondering whether it is wise to start with a “small” Agile tool, and then switch to a more complete solution later. The short answer is “not really.” If you begin your Agile transition with a simple Trello board, you will very rapidly bump up against the limitations of the tool. A good Agile tool should offer sufficient capabilities to allow you to continuously improve your Agile process. Tuleap lets you implement additional Agile tools as your organization becomes ready.
