UK Scrum Academy
The Agile approach to building digital services.
Learn how to apply Scrum to your projects, and how to work effectively within a Scrum team. Our UK government is transforming the way government departments deliver digital services. Since 2012, all government departments have been required to use the Agile approach to project management, to build and run digital services. Agile methodologies have also become extremely popular in recent years with many private sector organisations looking to adopt Agile principles in order to become more efficient, productive and adaptive. As you start your own Agile journey, one of your first challenges will be understanding the rules and roles that support Agile delivery, for example: Which Agile framework is applicable to your business operating model, or is the Project Manager role equivalent to that of the Product Owner, and what does a Scrum Master do? If you are contemplating transitioning your organisation to Agile ways of working, then you have probably already read numerous reports and editorials on the advantages of Agile delivery and all the improvements you can expect in terms of speed of delivery, quality of outcome and most importantly, reduced costs; but have you thought about the challenges you may face along the way? A strong corporate culture not accustomed to the Agile mindset can also be a difficult environment in which to implement Agile methods; in some cases, the company’s culture and ways of working may inadvertently reward non-Agile milestones and discourage Agile success. If the correct mindset for the new delivery concept is not in place, Agile adoption can be extremely difficult. When a company maintains a non-Agile mindset whilst trying to implement Agile practices, they often end up accomplishing far less at greater cost which ultimately leads them to somehow conclude, it is Agile that does not work.
