Agile Delivery of Data Projects
Data projects have traditionally flown from Waterfall planning and organisation. Each phase of design, development and testing would follow each other to a neatly defined set of milestones. Projects could take significant time to show results and, due to the delay in getting any kind of result, would often be not as originally intended.
At Nationwide Building Society, we are changing to a more agile way of working. This is helping to make our data engineering projects more effective, building products that are leading the way into a bright future.Read more
We are increasing our capability to deliver change in a more agile way, as well as applying agile mind-set, through how initiatives are constructed, governed and delivered. We have dedicated agile coaches within Change Development Centre of Excellence, who can train and encourage agile capability uplift and use of Agile methods, e.g. scrum, Kanban, ceremonies, retrospectives, etc.
Squads have been set up to run projects where each development is run via a sprint, usually two weeks. We are fully embracing the changes to ensure we can provide legendary service to our members.

We’re transforming the way we collect, look after and use data to ensure it is as reliable and safe as it can be. Having accurate and trustworthy data will make us more likely to get it right first time for our members.
