The state of Agile development in India: A Perspective

Partners SAFe Updates

Hi Folks,

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.

You can read the article here and I’ll keep you posted as the other interviews go to press.

Stay SAFe!

—Dean

    SAFe is alive and well in India. This year, my organization will be transitioning close to 2,000 people to SAFe. Big effort, bigger reward, and I look forward to every minute of it.

    Welcome to India.

    We kept hearing that one needs to keep on moving. Sometimes, we take a short route and other times long route, but the beauty is in the journey, which needs to be continued & we’re doing this Agile way.
