De-risking programmes

IndigoBlue’s team of expert practitioners bring the skills and experience required to ensure delivery success. Our Adapt 2.0® planning framework augments Agile and reduces the risks of Agile projects and large-scale, multimodal programmes, offering you a level of assurance and executive insight that simply cannot be found elsewhere.


Establishing programme governance that promotes Agile

You need greater visibility and control of your Agile programme, but you know that frameworks such as PRINCE2 will encourage Waterfall thinking and constrain Agile. No single programme manager can give you the assurance you require. What you need is a partner with a proven Agile programme governance approach that will provide you with appropriate control and visibility of progress without delaying the rapid delivery of value.

Adapt 2.0® gives you visibility of your Agile project or programme from an organisation-wide perspective, allowing you to exert timely control over programme issues and to address any internal or external constraints on the programme.

Adapt equips your organisation with the skills to gain control over Agile programmes without constraining the Agile approach. It makes the achievement of the full benefits of Agile far more likely.


Providing the gold standard in Agile programme assurance

Our expert practitioner delivery consultants have extensive experience of running multi-million-pound programmes in a wide range of contexts – from managing multi-supplier engagements, to troubleshooting programmes that have veered off course, to delivering successful programmes in bimodal and multimodal environments.

    Project initiation (discovery) is critical to achieving successful outcomes. Using the principles of Adapt 2.0®, we provide support to extend Agile and provide structured planning, forecasting and reporting, clearly linking value to deliverables and giving you the level of visibility and control you require to progress with confidence.

    From programme manager to lead tester, product manager to architect, IndigoBlue provides skilled, experienced staff to de-risk your project. Working as fully integrated members of ‘rainbow’ teams, our experts are proven to ensure successful outcomes.

    Where required, we can provide management resource to drive forward your Agile project or programme to deliver incremental value to your organisation early and often.
