If you’re here today, it’s because you want to know what the advantages of having an agile remote computer are.
Either because you want to hire it or because you want to implement this methodology in your company.
At Scrummers we are happy to share the knowledge we gain and the way we achieve our success.
That’s why today we want to tell you about the advantages of having an agile remote team.
The first advantage is:
Visibility: For every customer, it is very important to know where your project is, how it is progressing, and if it is really progressing.
Our solution for this is to give you tools like Jira that will allow you to see exactly at what point in the process we are working at this moment, what is next and any product resulting from that work will be consigned to that same tool.
In addition, as we have told you before, a daily report is made where each member of the team communicates to the Scrum Master their advances, setbacks, problems, and successes in order to trace them in the tool that has been defined.
Flexibility: How do you think it is easier to learn and adapt to change? For us it is clear that every company moves, time does not pass through but we constantly transform ourselves.
That’s why it’s much more efficient to move according to change, by iterations and not to draw a plan after another that collapses some modification of what we are doing.
This leads us to talk about the next advantage and that is Self-Organization: That allows us to advance all towards the same goal. Delivering soon, with quality and customer satisfaction.
If internally all the team has this value, the process flows.
The self-organization makes each role focus on what it corresponds, there is agility but in each daily, there is an integration of all these advances and ultimately gives us a much more accurate and agile.
The quality of the product benefits directly from the scrum methodology.
And why? you may ask.
When there is an alignment of an entire team where the opinions and knowledge of all are taken into account to improve the process, this will directly benefit.
In addition to the visibility and flexibility that allows us to keep pace with change.
For example, if with the first delivery of the product the client realized a fault that cannot reach the final consumer, having identified it and changed it at an early stage, results in a much more accurate product to the needs.
This will clearly add value to the company, both the one developing the product and the one hiring it.
You should already know that the business value at a point where we can sell to others who are thousands of miles away, is very important because when researching, the potential client will be able to bring a great project to life just by taking this point into account.
Thus, we understand that a project requires constant work between the parties, a reiterative communication, and when the quality of the product reflects it, it is seen externally.
If we have a successful relationship with our client and his satisfaction is so high that he continues to work with us in the long term, we will have the opportunity to be referred by him to any other businessman who wants products that we can offer.
All this set of advantages results in a decrease in risk.
Think about each point and how one by one it decreases the risks of losing time and money, both for those who develop and those who obtain the final product.
The visibility allows us to rectify that everything is being done as agreed, the agility makes it possible to change any process before it comes to light and before it means a backward movement of all the work already finished.
The product will have more and more affinity to the desired when it reaches a final consumer, the errors will be minimal.
Have you noticed it? At any point in the process you have the possibility to change it, make it better, or simply rethink everything without having invested all that it means to do a project with traditional methodologies.
We hope that this short blog has given you the necessary tools to consider working with a remote agile team.
At Scrummers we are convinced that just as it changed our lives, it will also change yours.
