It is common place today for organization to adopt an agile approach toward software development projects.
What is not so common place is the ability for all industry sectors to adopt the same agile approach, rather opting for a predictive approach. We often find that working with external stakeholders we do not have control over what methodology they choose to use during project execution and working on complex projects where we are not the prime contractor only adds to the gap. And in line with a predictive approach all requirements are defined upfront in terms of required solutions rather than business problems that must be solved.
Our ability to cross this divide will define how successful the project will be.
Will we deliver solutions as specified by users or will we solve business problems as expressed by stakeholders?
