What are agile methods?
This is an abstract.
Agile methods help to become more responsive and shorten lead times. There are a number of agile methods (frameworks) currently in use. A common denominator of these methods are the agile principles and the connecting points toLean.
Every organization needs an individual solution
There is no "one size fits all" approach to agility; rather, each team, program, and organization requires individual solutions, often combinations of methods and techniques appropriate to them.
Methods that are frequently used in this context are:
Scrum is an innovative framework that brings together the core elements of good teamwork. Scrum is particularly suitable for developing solutions to complex problems. Scrum is often used to manage projects.
Kanban is a framework from the Lean toolbox to get work flowing along the value chain - from the genesis of an idea to delivery.
Large Scale Scrum (LeSS) provides a consistent agile solution to work with multiple tightly coupled Scrum teams together on a joint product.
The Scaled Agile Framework - SAFe - is a scalable and configurable framework that enables lean & agile work with multiple teams or across the entire organization. The coupling of the teams is less tight.
Design thinking is a creative process for new ideas. Agile teams use this method to trigger innovations, develop new ideas and solve problems. The results are solutions that really inspire customers.
