The advent of technologies made organizations to demand both fast and high-quality solutions in reducing the growing complexities that are associated with web development projects. Most of the companies started to embrace the agile framework which offers shorter planning cycles, iterative testing and ongoing alignment with enterprise goals and customer needs.

As an alternative to traditional waterfall methodology, a client-centric agile enterprise framework enables engineering teams to develop a hybrid model that can withstand the real-time challenges. Each layer of the framework can use different agile methods that are adaptable to meet client requirements.

Here is an overview of the essential strategies that are associated with development of the agile enterprise framework.

Project portfolio management

The prime objective of portfolio management is to help an enterprise in aligning business goals with higher execution. It is a successful strategy in allocating and optimizing resources among the organization's team based on the deadline-driven workloads and also to attain maximum overall efficiency. Development teams that are keeping a flexible portfolio structure into work can achieve greater client success.

Project delivery

Project delivery is the middle-level strategy which involves all the tasks from requirement analysis to development and deployment with the collaboration of outside stakeholders and development teams. So, it requires a higher degree of flexibility in project delivery with the implementation of some longer-range technical planning and fixed-scope release planning.

Iteration management

It is the part of an agile framework which encompasses the planning, execution, and leadership during the recitation of tasks within fixed intervals. This strategy allows enterprise authorities to engage with clients effectively by concentrating on their constructive feedback.

Objectives and key results (OKRs)

Use of OKRs allows management to prioritize its goals for each portfolio team while allocating the implementation details for organizations to figure out. Each cross-functional team can select the best-suited approach based on targeted priorities and their track progress to define workflow in attaining the key results.

Once an organization adopted a client-centric agile enterprise framework, development teams can consolidate with a client’s existing project framework and cope with changing requirements by distributing resources wisely and creating robust win-win solutions.
