Agile coaching and training

Through our coaching, consultancy and training services, we support your organisation in achieving peak Agility, creating highly proficient, collaborative teams delivering value faster to your users and customers.

CHALLENGES WE SOLVE

Unlocking the full benefits of Agile

You know that Agile should be delivering more. Your teams are busy but not productive and the budget’s being consumed. Releasing is as costly and slow as it ever was. The early value Agile promised to deliver has yet to arrive.

Help is at hand. With targeted support from our Agile experts, you can unlock the full benefits of Agile. We tailor our on-site training courses to your organisation's needs and by embedding our expert coaches in your teams, we accelerate their improvement.

THE VALUE WE ADD

Optimised Agile for maximised ROI

By honing your teams’ Agile behaviours to improve communication and collaboration, we build their skills, reduce waste, optimise flow and improve productivity. From the operation of the Scrum to more advanced knowledge of incremental delivery of value and dynamic management of uncertainty, we help your organisation vastly increase both speed to market and ROI.

OUR APPROACH

Hands-on coaching for sustainable change

Our expert coaches work directly with your teams to enhance their Agile understanding, behaviours and practical skills. Through our coaching, we cultivate excellence in Agile planning, delivery and governance. Where there are gaps in your teams that need to be filled, we help you to recruit high performing Agile specialists who fit the bill.

We can also work with you to establish your organisation’s Agile Centre of Excellence which captures and radiates this emerging best practice, ensuring sustainable change after we have left.

    We review your Agile delivery capacity in its wider organisational context against the Agile Maturity Matrix, providing you with a practical, phased plan of incremental improvements. 

    As part of our diagnostic review, we assess your engineering capability, including DevOps, architecture and test automation.

    Our expert Agile coaches and trainers work hand-in-hand with your teams across the business and IT to provide tailored guidance and professional development to help them achieve their full potential. 

    Our senior consultants bring their extensive business experience to bear to support and coach executives in the effective governance of Agile programmes.

    We utilise Design Thinking, Solution Value Mapping, Story Mapping and Architectural Component design to define the context and accelerate effective Agile planning.

    We seek sustainable change for our clients, working closely with you to set a pace that is effective in delivering your objectives and ensuring new ways of working remain in place after we’ve gone.
