Agile Way of Working

An Agile Way of Working (WoW) defines a specific Agile working model that each project or product team chooses to implement. It helps teams decide the Agile methods, processes and practices they want to use. This gives the team maximum flexibility to work with minimum constraints and therefore, optimizes their performance. A WoW helps teams adopt and evolve Agile methods and practices that best fit their team and organizational needs.

WoW incorporates various industry-standard Agile frameworks and methods available and consists planning models, functionalities, work-area types or levels, plannable entities, terminologies, and a set of pre-configured apps.
