With more than 140 employees and a total of 17 teams, the IT department focuses on the further development and operation of IT systems.
The agile transformation is based on the motto “courage, speed and agility”.
The transformation started in mid-2019 with a status analysis of the corporate culture, the processes and structures in place, as well as the tools used.
The definition of the process organization was one of the first major topics. In this process, it became clear – the tools currently in use do not fully meet the requirements. A combination of Jira and Confluence was available, but up until recently, not as a separate instance, which led to challenges such as a lack of transparency. In addition, the scaling of Scrum (SAFe®) could not be easily mapped into Jira – which created further challenges.
The decision for Agile Hive was made in the beginning of 2021; meanwhile, more than 100 employees in the Agile Release Train use the tool every day. The evaluation started with a proof of concept and testing and the implementation of Agile Hive started right after the completion of a PI Planning. Therefore, the teams were well-prepared for the next interval to be able to map the following PIP directly with the help of Agile Hive.
