There is nowhere to run, or anything more innovative than this: the world’s greatest revolutions only came about because of the discomfort felt by those who were ahead of their time.
The Internet was no different. If before it was used to make friends on social networks, read news of famous people we admire or similar things, today it is, among many other things, one of the largest fields and means of business in the world.
But things don’t stop there. If the Internet used to be a no man’s land, today it is very professionally managed and watched, especially when it comes to making this network a means to publicize a company, what it sells and how it presents itself to the world.
In today’s article, you will learn a bit about what we call agile methodologies and how this is extremely important for your business in digital. Companies that manage to survive the chaotic pandemic scenario must reinvent themselves and optimize their resources.
Agile methodologies, what are they?
Agile methodologies are a set of strategies that, when used in business management, allow to provide quick responses in problem-solving, helping to make more frequent deliveries, optimizing time and financial resources, and, in addition, without neglecting quality and excellence in what is done and how it is managed.
As the proposition is that all innovation is good, most companies have used agile methodologies in various sectors.
As we mentioned before, agile methodologies have the function of streamlining a company’s processes, but they are good for much more than that. They also provide clarity in the organizational system, increase productivity, and, most importantly, allow a fair and humanized exchange with the customer, through what they consume and what you sell them.
That is why, below, you can see three of the most used methodologies by companies around the world.
Being one of the best known and most widely used, this agile method is excellent for the delivery of projects whose aim is to offer remarkable results in short and constant periods of time.
If your company decides to implement the Scrum method, it is important to have access to a platform to watch the development of the cycles or sprints, and that the start and end dates are clearly set up to conduct what is planned in the roadmap of the new product or service, assigning specific tasks to team members.
After the completion of a cycle, the team performs through Scrum the retrospective analysis of the team’s performance and delivery of results, with the goal of defining corrective actions for improvement in the next cycle and recognizing the effort in the completion of the activities performed.
Also considered one of the main methods, this approach allows one to understand the whole development of a project through checklists. It has been presented as one of the most widely used by companies.
Unlike Scrum, Kanban has a more visual structure since this system creates a kind of vision board of the company, dividing it into categories according to the status of the process: “to do, in progress and done”.
This method aims to achieve shorter and simpler goals and can be used in the initial routine. Isn’t it great?
Lean is also excellent for reducing costs because by putting it into practice, managers can analyze and cut what they consider to be unnecessary spending. This helps improve delivery.
And don’t forget: the choice of a model of these methodologies must be made according to the needs of your company.
