Building a New Service Line Using Agile

Your services business is growing. You’ve made a name for yourself by being very good in a particular area, but now you’d like to expand your portfolio of services, enabling the next phase of growth. What’s the best approach for creating a new service line without crippling the existing one? How do you leverage existing capabilities and free resources to build it? How do you find out quickly if you’re on the right track to avoid wasting time and money in the wrong direction?

The solution is agile. In this session, you’ll learn:

  • How to run an iterative internal project to develop a new service line (specifically for Business Analysis services) and get value from Day 1
  • Rules and roles needed to run a successful internal capability development project
  • How to elaborate and prioritise a service line product backlog, estimate capacity, estimate workload, plan releases and run sprints
  • How the speaker’s company is organising internal resources in an agile way that maximises contribution to company development.
