What is the Agile working method? For the sake of explanation, we will compare Agile to another well-known work method called ‘Waterfall’, according to which we wait for a process to end and only then start a new project. Contrastingly, when processes executed according to the Agile method are not necessarily consecutive but parallel, making things more flexible. For example, when working on a long process with the client, we present the product in parts, even if it is still incomplete but good enough to go live (MVP). We get feedback and rejections, regroup to improve and repeat that process until we reach the desired result. In other words, it is a method that constantly reacts to the situation and keeps us alert, and is therefore a better method for responding to unexpected changes in real time.
The Agile work method is characterized by rituals, such as Daily Standup – a daily 15-minute team synchronizing meeting to make sure that everyone is aligned. Sprints – each work sprint lasts about two weeks, after which the employees synchronize and evaluate performance and results.
In conclusion, one of the most effective business methods for dealing with uncertainty is Agile, which helps organizations adapt to change. The trick is to implement the work method in your organization without raising too many objections. As with any work method, it is necessary to implement it correctly at the internal organizational level. Each organization must find the relevant tools and the right way to implement them so that they serve the company and don’t become a challenge in themselves.
