Being Agile with SAP Projects!
Sprints, standup meetings, retrospectives and kanban boards are not words that you expect to be part of a SAP implementation project. But, guess what? Here they are! Just below the latitude 33. We are fully using the ASAP Hybrid Agile model to come across with a successful SAP project. At least we expect that.
Although the whole endeavor it quite hard, and perhaps risky, we decided to run agile (Scrum) to involve (and evolve) our key users more on the project, to prioritize our developments (gaps) and to promote a high level of interaction between all team members. In doing so, we will control better our time and costs, and hopefully deliver what an IT project should always accomplish: business results.
So far we have run sprints for our business blueprints, including several modules, and the interfaces. By the way, lots of them. I will share more experiences here as the project goes on. Even because our experiences will not finish there. We have a quite extensive technical scope, from ECC to BPM, from PI to Afaria.
