Agile is a way of project management using which complex projects can be handled easily and can be reached with a goal of success. Handling eBook projects using Agile method ensures the sure success of eBook Conversion (ePub, Mobi, Fixed Layout formats etc) projects.
How does it work?
Agile might be an incremental approach to building eBook formats. The team gathers requirements; divide this requirement into sprints of work. Sprint is a short time period (generally 2 weeks) during which team makes progress on selected tasks and delivers these tasks successfully at the end of each sprint.
This gives a chance to the customer to review the ebooks during the ebook conversion and provide their regular feedback to the team.
Agile works in a great way in change management. If a client wants to introduce any change in the eBook, this way of project management provides the opportunity to do so unlike other ways of project management. Every time client wants any change they can have teamwork on that in the next sprint. Seems interesting?
How it ensures that project will be successful?
Firstly, time to time involvement of client at the end of each sprint makes sure that team is meeting client’s expectation in ebook conversion. There cannot be any misunderstanding as the team is delivering the eBooks at the end of each sprint & working on the feedback at the same time.
Secondly, there is a day to day interaction between team members discussing project progress in the form of daily scrum meeting:
- What did you do yesterday?
- What is the plan for today?
- What are the current challenges?
There are many other factors that make sure the success of eBook projects.
