We deployed the Scrum method among almost all our teams in 2016.
Barriers between our various roles disappeared as collaborative approaches took over, along with an attitude in which a vision for the product is shared between the product owner and the development team. Our common objective is to provide our customers with value.
The dynamic this creates goes beyond simply forming teams: it leads to practice communities being implemented (namely architecture, user interface, product owner and scrum master). These are made up of colleagues committed to sharing knowledge and passing on best practice about a particular subject or role.
Thanks to agile methods, we have also introduced new tools which encourage dialogue and creativity such as story mapping, graphics workshops, innovation games and so on.
This new practice is very effective - and well liked!
