The business world is moving from treating IT as a utility that improves internal operations to using rapid software and technology powered innovation cycles as a competitive advantage. This has far reaching consequences. The traditional program and project management models we have used for software development are unsuited to rapid innovation cycles. Software development requires a different way of running. Agile and Automation are leading the way forward.

With the advent of Agile & Automation, an enormous amount of demand from people working in enterprises who wanted to adopt Lean startup, Design thinking, DevOps frameworks and practices. A large number of companies have achieved measurable benefit from using Agile & Automation techniques;  resulting in delivery of higher-quality products to market faster, increased customer satisfaction, and higher returns on investment. This comes with reduced cost and risk as well as happier employees who are no longer working unsustainable hours and have the opportunity to harness their creativity and passion at work.

Hence, this year, SPIN Chennai has chosen Agile & Automation as the theme for Watts Humphrey Awards 2018. And wants to recognize the teams and organizations that infuse these practices for maximum business value and impact.
