Introduction to Agile | HCLTech


Agile development is based on a set of principles and practices that work together to reduce risk while providing incremental value. As you consider adopting agile methods, or seek to expand agile benefits, you’ll need to build a common foundation of understanding how agile practices work.

Introduction to Agile from Enterprise Studio is a workshop designed to help everyone—from engineering to DevOps to product management to account and finance—speak the same language and understand their role in your agile transformation.

Your Business Challenges

As organizations vie to be key players in the application economy, many are shifting from waterfall to agile practices, which brings with it benefits including faster time to market, increased productivity, fewer defects, cost savings and better employee engagement.

Agile goes beyond just software development to permeate entire companies, helping them more quickly respond to change, deliver value faster than competitors and create the products and services customers want.

But you don’t just flip a switch and become agile; it’s a transformation journey that starts with grasping the basic tenets and key practices.

Key Outcomes

Collaborate better via cross-functional teams to eliminate waste and reduce risk and get frequent feedback for continuous improvement.
