Analysis of the scrum implementation and establishment at Mercedes-Benz Cars 2020 Best Finance

  • In an increasingly complex and dynamic world organizations must be able to be adaptive and act more flexible to remain competitive and sustainable. This also applies for the implementation of long-term projects which is the focus of this thesis. Project organizations increasingly tend towards agile process models (scrum) in project management as an alternative to traditional process models (waterfall) in order to increase the project efficiency through greater flexibility and transparency. This bachelor thesis deals with an analysis of the scrum implementation and establishment in the project Best Finance at Mercedes-Benz Cars. After the theoretical foundations of the traditional process model are explained another part reviews the implementation of it in Best Finance. In this context, the challenges with this approach based on theory and experienced in Best Finance are identified to justify the transition to agile methods. Main object for the practical part constitutes a research concept to analyze and evaluate Best Finance based on scrum. The basis of the concept constitutes the generally valid project management success factors which are complemented by questions of the agile theory. The interrogation with the representatives of Best Finance by means of quantitative and qualitative data collection serves as an information source for the research concept. The project management success factors are evaluated and analyzed. Main results show that the agile process model is still at the beginning regarding its operational application, though, the project organization of Best Finance made first positive experiences with this approach. However, the analysis also reveals that there is still potential for improvement regarding the project procedure based on scrum. The practical recommendations suggested at the end of the thesis aim at creating a better understanding of scrum and the promotion of the establishment in Best Finance.
