Have an Initial Conversation to Start an Agile Project: A CSP and CSM share how teams at Baker Hughes choose the solution delivery methodology that best suits the project.
Based on our experience, it is essential that stakeholders be involved in deciding the approach for solution delivery. Agile and Scrum require commitment and collaboration from various stakeholders for successful delivery and customer delight. While teams inspect and adapt their ways of working through multiple iterations, efforts of multiple stakeholders need to be coordinated. Without collaboration, sustainability is compromised. Commitment and collaboration cannot be achieved without setting the foundation early on in the project. At Baker Hughes Incorporated, our processes facilitate the initial conversation between multiple stakeholders to make the project successful. During the initial stage of projects at Baker Hughes, the teams have an opportunity to choose a solution delivery methodology – Waterfall, Rapid Application Deployment or Agile.
