Assured Agile Delivery
Leading Complex Projects in Global Markets
Partnering with our clients, we manage the delivery of business-critical, bespoke software solutions in complex domains. We know that no two projects are the same, and our belief is that the best outcomes are achieved by adapting methods and controls to what works best for our clients’ needs. We achieve this through the pragmatic application of agile methods as the core of the process, assured by practical governance throughout the project lifecycle. We believe that this approach of agility and pragmatism allows us to maximise the value of the solutions we deliver to our clients.
Matt Phillips, Head of Delivery
We pragmatically apply agile frameworks, like Scrum and Kanban, to help our clients maximise outcomes. However, we also believe there is a lot more to agile than simply adopting a framework. To make agile work we need to be agile. Being agile is a mindset, one that means being open to change, having pride in the product and developing a culture of continuous learning and improvement. We believe it is this mindset, and not a process, that cultivates high-performing teams, who in turn deliver amazing value for their customers.
Practical governance means balancing the requirements of the wider organisation with the management needs of the project, avoiding the all-too-common symptom of “over-governed and under-managed”. We work with our clients to tailor the governance approach to the organisation, stakeholders and the project.
We passionately believe that encouraging a ‘one team’ approach to delivery is critical to success. We work in partnership with our clients, and their partners, to promote a ‘one team’ approach from day one, identifying the shared goals that help bind everyone together. We also help foster collaboration through work environments that effectively encourage distributed teams to work well together.
Focus on Value
We believe that the success of a project should be measured by the value it delivers. Value is achieved when our clients realise business benefits from the solutions we deliver. We work closely with our clients throughout the project to build a shared understanding of what constitutes a successful outcome. That way, the project always remains focused on the value it delivers.
Deliver Early, Deliver Often
We work with our clients to develop an iterative and incremental release strategy that incorporates frequent user feedback into our development cycles. This helps us and our clients understand what their users really need, how they will use the product and how we can gain acceptance. It gives us the facts we need to make the right decisions for the product. Our belief is that delivering early and often ultimately drives better outcomes for our clients.
