The successful completion of any IT project requires the right talent on-hand during each development phase. While your in-house team is undoubtedly skilled and well-trained, there are times when projects come along that require specialized skills and are due within a short period of time. When these projects arise, it’s difficult for IT managers to request staff to take on additional tasks if they already have a full workload or must learn complex skills quickly.
As you begin building an Agile team, knowing the functions and titles of the team members is necessary to create a successful product. Working in the Agile method continues to grow in popularity for IT projects because Agile methodologies have a high level of success when applied to diverse projects that require skill, timeliness, and creative tactics.
Quality assurance (QA) testing guarantees the best user experience under safe conditions that protect users from hackers attempting to access their private information. As developers make changes on the back end of the software, QA testers ensure that the front-end experience is unaltered and functions properly.
Innovation advances the world. All industries are pioneered by innovative leaders who apply their skills to the enrichment of their field. From Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Edison and Albert Einstein all the way to George Washington Carver, Marie Curie, Steve Jobs and Elon Musk, innovative minds have left their mark on everything from entertainment to technology.
More businesses are using cross-functional teams to remain competitive. Still, these teams are ineffective if the proper strategies aren’t in place to maximize productivity. Building innovative products requires organization and strong communication skills, but that doesn’t mean these qualities are only found in traditional workspaces. By fostering a collaborative environment, IT managers will create the ideal setting for team members to be successful at every phase of development.
Many businesses are facing the greatest shortage of technology talent since the early 2000s. Harvey Nash/KPMG revealed that 65 percent of CIOs said they believe a lack of talent is preventing them from keeping up with the rapid pace of technology. Usually, when businesses look for additional help to complete their projects, the first thing that comes to mind is hiring more team members; however, there are other options.
Data is growing faster than is even fathomable. By 2020, roughly 1.7 megabytes of new information will be created every second for every human being on the planet. Given the immense amount of data, it’s no wonder there is a call in all industries for talent that can collect and analyze the data.
To work Agile is to work in a timebox style. Testers must work within a smaller scope during development cycles of two to four weeks (called Sprints), and address changes within each Sprint while acknowledging the impacts of those changes for the next Sprint.
