If we can’t find a way to smooth the curve of supply, we don’t just face the problem of the spike - we lose knowledge, we lose pace and we leave the business frustrated that we can’t deliver in the timeframe we would have achieved had we not had to align our skills management to the arbitrary measure of the Gregorian calendar.

If you’re a bank or other financial organisation and you’re releasing software in production, you’re not supposed to take risks. Forget the fact that our entire financial industry is based on risk, software is supposed to be safe as houses, and not put the business ‘at risk’.

A great deal has been written about Agile in recent years and although most financial firms have already embraced this method over traditional waterfall ways of working within the product and IT domains, few have properly been able to transform to their organisations’ operations around a progressive multi-disciplined agile agenda.

A lot has been said about the differences in organisational construct when tackling a particular project versus dealing with the business as usual (BAU) tasks associated with running your firm.

When it comes to attitude, no tool can make a person embrace a different way of working. But seeing projects succeed certainly can, and we look to positively reinforce our personal experiences regularly. We encourage over-communication.

There’s a significant benefit to declaring victories early on in a programme, even if those victories are seemingly inconsequential when compared to the bigger picture or goal.

To get things live, you’ve got to work with the system, not ignore the system. Agile when done correctly does deliver the capability to launch product and iterate swiftly. Uber and Monza are classic examples of this, but their starting positions were not saddled with 150 years of DNA that is counterintuitive to the core belief that better is the enemy of the good.
