Agile Software Project Management

With a focus on customer value and continuous improvement, we love to work according to the principles of agile processes.

Why are we using the agile framework?

In today's world, there are many changes in a short period of time. In order to keep up with it, a certain degree of flexibility is required. This is exactly what agile project management or agile software development offers. In this way of working, changes in requirements are welcomed even during the ongoing project. Through early and constant feedback loops directly with our customers, we get their opinion on what has already been implemented and will integrate change requests if necessary. This also increases the effectiveness of our teams and provides transparency to our customers regarding the project status. And the statistics also show that this has proven its worth. Already 94% of the companies surveyed use agile methods.

Our key roles in Scrum

In contrast to traditional project management, with roles such as Product and Project Manager, in Scrum there are the roles of Product Owner and Scrum Master.

Traditional Project Management vs. Agile Project Management

Differences in the roles of project management

What are the differences between the tasks of conventional project managers and the role models in agile project management? The tasks were divided thematically between the product owner and the scrum master.

Product Owner

The Product Owners are responsible for ensuring the ROI (Return on Investment) of the project and making sure that the value of a product is always given. Therefore, they represent the interface between our development team and our customers, and are also the primary point of contact for all stakeholders. It is important that the requirements defined by them are correctly interpreted by the team and that the appropriate product is developed to meet the defined needs of our customers. So, based on the requirements brought to them, they distribute the specific work orders to our team, which is primarily self-organized. Another important part of a Product Owner’s job is to define the right order of delivered functionalities. Most importantly, our Product Owners create a vision in projects, ensuring that everyone involved is clear about what and for what purpose a product is being developed.

Scrum Master

In Scrum (agile framework), a Scrum Master primarily takes on the role of a team coach or trainer. Scrum masters are not seen as disciplinary leaders, but rather should be mentors for the team. They are responsible for removing barriers and enabling the team to work efficiently. They also ensure that everyone in the team understands and properly implements agile practices. Team meetings are facilitated by our Scrum Masters and in case of conflicts, they are the central point of contact for all our team members. Subsequently, they try to solve conflicts together and thus our Scrum Masters try to create transparency in the team.
