Why train in Agile in New York?

A report into City Initiatives For Technology, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship named New York as the number one city in the world for tech and innovation. The report, conducted by Accenture, Nesta, and Future Cities Catapult, found that New York had created the environment and facilities needed to build and support a growing community of startups and tech entrepreneurs. The city of New York and its leaders have developed a committed approach to attracting tech companies to the city, resulting in the development of almost 300,000 new jobs. New York continues to help drive innovation with initiatives such as the Challenge Program, which is designed to help find new tech talent while making improvements to the city.

The ongoing support from leaders to help keep tech companies in the city and encourage new growth makes New York the perfect place for tech talent to pursue their career, and a great location for tech businesses to make their home. The development of New York as a leader of technology and innovation does however mean that tech talent working in the city needs to be trained in the most up-to-date technology to stay ahead of the competition. Innovation in tech is about more than advancing technology, it’s also about creating innovation within the workplace, with many businesses adopting new working practices such as the Agile methodology to improve the performance of their teams and products.

Although the tech industry in New York may not be home to the most well-known tech companies, such as FaceBook and Twitter, it is developing a solid foundation of profitable tech companies and expanding its footprint on the city. The once small tech area, known as Silicon Alley, has expanded out to the Bronx, Harlem, and Queens. Technology is also being heavily adopted by traditional companies, which is creating opportunities for these businesses to train their team in IT and adopt leaner, more productive ways of working. For any business operating in New York, investing in Agile methodologies and practices will bring a huge range of benefits to their business, including reduced costs and better efficiency!

What is Agile?

Agile is a production method that is designed to improve the speed of the production process and create a higher quality finished product. The flexibility of the Agile process makes it easy for teams to build software in a series of small steps, as apposed to focusing on one large product release. Agile can be used though every phase of production including planning, building, and development, which makes it possible for teams to be fast and flexible from start to finish of the production cycle. Agile methods have also been adopted as an effective way of managing products not related to software development. Crystal, Scrum, Lean Development, Feature-Driven Development (FDD), Extreme Programming (XP), and the Dynamic Systems Development Method (DSDM) are all parts of the Agile method.

Agile was originally created by developers for developers in 2001. The Agile methodology is underpinned by four key principles:

  • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
  • Working software over comprehensive documentation
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
  • Responding to change over following a plan

Should you train your team in Agile?

Agile is most definitely making the switch from a desired skill to a required skill if want to secure a job at a leading tech firm or even a traditional firm that’s adopting new, more flexible, working methods. If you’re a business leader wondering about making the switch to Agile and weighing up the cost of training vs. the benefits of an Agile team, you don’t need to worry. Although training your entire team in Agile is a significant investment, the benefits of using Agile will quickly offset the cost. One of the most significant benefits of an Agile team is the improvements in product quality. When a team develops software using an Agile approach the development process is broken down into many small steps. The team will focus on one step at a time, with the aim of solving one real life user issue during the phase, and make iterative developments towards the full product release. Agile allows consumers the opportunity to provide feedback at each step of the process, which means developers can adapt the nest steps based on consumer’s comments. The result is a finished product that is more closely aligned with consumer needs.  Agile products are also much easier to create a schedule for, as each step can be assigned a set amount of time. This reduces costs and ensures deliverables are available on time. Agile teams are adaptable, reliable, and productive, which reduces costs and maximizes output.

Agile training can also be a smart choice for teams that have some Agile training but are struggling to fully adapt to the process, and new teams that aren’t used to working together.
