Case of Agile transformation: Dott.pro

Overview:  Dott.pro is a company that develops an online CPA (Cost per Action) platform, which connects advertisers and web-masters.

Challenges

The company faced several challenges, including delivery speed of the IT team not satisfying business needs, issues with product quality, lack of transparency about task readiness, and issues with estimation accuracy.

To address these challenges, the company engaged consultants to implement an agile methodology, specifically Scrum.

Solution

The consultants recommended implementing Scrum, an agile methodology that promotes iterative development, continuous feedback, and team collaboration. The methodology emphasizes flexibility and transparency, allowing teams to respond to changes and work on the most important tasks first.

The Scrum framework involves regular meetings, including daily stand-ups, sprint planning, sprint review, and sprint retrospective. These meetings provide a structure for team members to discuss progress, identify challenges, and plan future work. Additionally, Scrum includes the use of backlogs, which are prioritized lists of tasks that need to be completed. This helps to ensure that the team is working on the most important tasks first and that there is transparency about task readiness.
