Agile IRL: Early and Continuous Delivery in Sri Lanka

What we can learn from the Sri Lankan hotel business.

Sri Lanka & Tourism

Tourist influx in Sri Lanka
(1) Our Homestay in Ella, with only our room finished.
(2) Our Homestay in Polonnaruwa, with all the common areas still in development.

Early & Continuous Delivery

01. Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery.

Waterfall vs. Agile: Value & Risk

Delivering Value

By building the Homestay room by room, they could already deliver value for tourists, and generate income for further development.

Feedback & Iteration

Reducing Risk

The “Ghost Tower” in Bangkok, a real estate project that was never finished due to bankruptcy.
