Methodology battles is making project delivery complex – but it shouldn’t
People in delivery roles across Telstra are feeling fatigued. Rather than focus on delivering good outcomes for the customer, they are being caught up in a conflict between traditional project delivery vs agile delivery. The methodology has become the focus, instead of the outcome.
Unfortunately many myths are propagating about both methods in order to give one side the edge in the debate. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Investigating the situation across Telstra has revealed that the root causes for many of these myths and the case for change are not being addressed. Also, most people would feel empowered and positive if they felt that both methods could co-exist.
Peter will share the journey that Telstra is currently on with its adoption of agile as a way of working, how it is trying to disrupt waterfall (correctly and incorrectly), and what could be done to create a more harmonious project delivery environment for all.
