Agile BI Development Methodology

To speed up delivery of BI capabilities to GW stakeholders, the BI initiative will use an iterative, incremental scrum-based approach. Agile BI involves applying an agile mindset to business intelligence. This strategy includes the following components:

  • using an iterative, incremental and evolutionary approach
  • focusing on value-driven development
  • delivering production-quality applications
  • using barely sufficient processes
  • automating everything
  • collaborating with the customer
  • encouraging self-organizing and self-managing teams
  • having the flexibility to accommodate existing PM structures and methodologies, such as the project management lifecycle (PMLC)

The graphic below illustrates the BI agile capability development concept.
