Workshop Benefits

  1. Quality

Enhancing the overall quality of the product is the fundamental objective of the agile process. Regular testing occurs throughout each sprint allowing the team to understand what is working and what isn’t and adjust accordingly. Each new release is tested thoroughly to ensure quality.

Sprint reviews occur at the end of the sprint cycle and gives the product manager an opportunity to review and make necessary improvements. The team can reflect and work on ways to become more effective.

  1. Client satisfaction

Adopting agile methodology into software development allows product teams to deliver new, enhanced products to the market quicker and more efficiently which improves overall customer satisfaction. The customer is engaged in the process and product teams can demonstrate new features in each sprint.

  1. Reduced project risks

One of the key benefits of Agile is the ability to eliminate the risk of a project failing completely. Short sprints mean the product is always in development, so the product team know quickly whether an enhancement will work or fail. Agile also gives the product manager the freedom to implement any new changes to ensure the success of the project.

Product teams can add value to the product early in the process, reducing the risk for any major project failures.

  1. More control over the project

The use of bug and issue tracking products such as Jira allows the product manager to have control and full visibility over the project. Regular sprint meetings and sprint reviews ensures there is full transparency across the product team and their expectations.

  1. Increased velocity

A key advantage of using the agile approach is the increased velocity of bringing a product to market. Product teams are able to develop a product that is ready for market in a much quicker turnaround than other methods. Short, iterative sprints lead to more frequent product releases giving the product team a first mover advantage.

  1. Focus on the end user

The agile approach uses regular customer feedback to define the product design. The product manager focuses on adding features that are going to benefit the end user of the product. Each new feature or enhancement must add value to the user or it is left out of the product scope. Beta testing provides valuable feedback throughout the project.

 Geobank Product Manager Mark Gabbitus commented “Agile methodology has played a key role in increasing the overall productivity of the Geobank product over the past 12 months. The feedback from our clients has been really positive and we have been able to make some really significant improvements to the software”

With the release of Geobank 2018 on the horizon, Gabbitus is excited for what’s on the development roadmap for Geobank “our development team have been busy adding some exciting new features to Geobank 2018 and have made some key improvements to the Graphic Reports utility. These updates have been made on the back of extensive consultation with our clients.”
