Abstract

The Hanover Technology Group (HTG) develops software applications for Hanover Insurance internally. They currently use a waterfall methodology that is very document oriented and inhibits HTG's speed to market. This project explored process redesign opportunities to increase the speed of HTG's delivery process by increasing flexibility. We collected data through staff interviews, document analysis, and research on current SDLC methodologies. We developed redesign recommendations for Scrum and hybrid methodology with guidelines to measure success after implementation.
