AGILE a big run for SMEs

Agile implementation has been widely accepted in multiple industries & an efficient implementation will surely result in higher ROI, the incentives are high enough to push an organization to carry out necessary dynamic changes in organizational and operational structure all that while diligently adhering to agile framework.

An efficient cross organization agile implementation can result in 10 to 20 percent  increase in the ROI, along with the increasing ROI , a successful implementation will increase productivity data of all the departments which are being operational under agile framework. 

The iterative nature of the agile methodology make the  product delivery cycle more productive and efficient. Agile workforce and process implementation coupled with frequent quality checks and real time rectification mechanisms result in higher productivity data.

Each iteration after receiving the BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE  and QA data can then be optimized according to the organizational structure and needs, With time the implementation will evolve and the workflow will be streamlined and automated to a higher extent , the level of automation is quite dependent on the current technology so as the technology evolves the level of automation will also increase and hence agile implementation with  technologically advanced automated processes will add lot to the value chain and will increase efficiency exponentially.

 SME’S have to compete and operate in an highly dynamic ecosystem so they should opt  for full level organizational agile implementation as the execution will be easier due to small scale and operational structure .

Agile implementation from the scratch can result in huge cost-benefit ratio and hence the margins will increase via successful organizational level implementation, a successful agile implementation will render better automation and communication capabilities along with this it will also make hand-off delivery more efficient and streamlined. 

Right scale of implementation will result in better cost effectiveness, better management of  payroll and operational costs, along with cost effectiveness it will also bolster risk mitigation initiatives.

Most of the fortune 500 companies have seen 10-20 percent growth in R.O.I  post implementation . So adapting to agile framework at an organizational level and efficiently synchronizing it with the organizational structure will manifest high degree of organization efficiency and low degree of  process and deliverable related latency.

In order to effectively integrate operation with agile the training and execution has to start from the top managerial level and then slowly trickle  it down to lower managerial layers, this is not an easy task hence the culture has to be re-visited according to the changes in the organizational structure, scalable  implementation of agile will result in higher R.O.I but apart from that it will also reduce the inter department latency via lesser hand-off dispatch and better team co-ordination.

Trickling down the knowledge transfer from top to down can be very beneficial as it will create an  productive environment  for the workforce and the mangers, as it will give them time to understand and adapt to the structural changes, mid level managers and FLM should be well trained in order to contribute to the value chain and post-implementation the value addition will be streamlined and efficient.

For effective implementation at inter-department level the implementation has to be properly structured and standardized according to the department needs and at the same time core processes has to be effectively carried out so that any loss in the margins can be covered up.

It is better to adapt to a slow and steady implementation process and choosing departments which are loosely coupled for the first phase of implementation, based on the performance chart and involved implementation techniques the framework can be optimize and enhanced and can be scaled up horizontally in the later phase.

Fewer than 20 percent of the companies think they have efficient implementation and call them mature adopters, according to the mckinsey the companies which are adopting agile at scale have accelerated the innovation.

An effective organization level agile implementation will result in higher transfer of knowledge, it will also enhance inter-team co-ordination via effectively leveraging the clear line of communication between business and IT units resulting in lower hand-offs and TATs thus resulting in higher ROI.
