The state of Agile development in India: A Perspective
I recently returned from a whirlwind, five-day, three-city visit in India (thanks Michael and Pranjal!) with Gold Partners Infosys and Persistent Systems, Gold SPCT Partner Flow Sphere, and Platform PLUS Partner Agile Cockpit. This was a wonderful experience and it was exciting to learn more about how SAFe is being implemented by leading Indian IT companies. The Framework is clearly playing an important role— not just helping them get better at what they’ve always done— but also enabling them to pursue a stronger leadership position in the global systems development world.
I also had the opportunity to meet with some influential Indian technology and business journalists. The first interview, with a senior correspondent for the Bangalore edition of The Economic Times, focused on the state of Agile development in India. We talked about where Indian software firms are on the scale of Agile adoption, the relevancy of Agile today, and some advice for firms implementing Agile.
