The success of agile development projects has traditionally been attributed to close collaboration and regular communication among team members and with customers. Pandemic-induced remote working has disrupted the agile model and tested its limits. With enterprises rapidly transitioning to a remote delivery model, they have replicated the processes, governance, and workflows of traditional agile development. However, the increasing need for continuous value delivery along with risk-efficient, employee-centric operations is driving enterprises to adopt a more sustainable software development methodology.
The next generation of agile will embrace a natively distributed construct – with communication, processes, and workflows optimized for remote delivery. The model will be poised to deliver benefits such as increased productivity, higher talent availability, and cost savings.
