Assured agile

Our Assured Agile project delivery framework combines robust formal project and risk management techniques with the agility of Scrum. We use this framework to successfully deliver enterprise scale, complex software projects distributed over locations and time zones.

OUR APPROACH TO AGILE

We created Assured Agile because we know our clients don’t just value our great software skills, but our ability to deliver in complex, large-scale enterprise environments. Assured Agile provides a set of project management practices and a project lifecycle, adapting and strengthening standard Agile methods. Formulated by our project delivery experts, Assured Agile followed many thousands of hours working for global organisations, taking inspiration from established governance and project management techniques, from Scrum, XP, Kanban and Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD) to PRINCE2.

Standard Agile methods (Scrum/XP)

We believe that the Agile way of thinking about complex software development is the right one. This conviction is more fundamental than simply a preference for specific Agile methods; it is based on our depth of experience of the challenges of delivering enterprise projects using a variety of project management methodologies. Assured Agile augments the Scrum and XP methods, retaining the process flexibility and strong quality and team behaviour practices that make these methods effective.

DESIGNED TO SUCCEED

We believe Agile methods provide a strong basis for dealing with the challenges of change, risk and complexity in real-world projects than traditional plan-driven methods. However, enterprise level projects need more structure and formality than standard Agile provides. Assured Agile adds a phased lifecycle, formal project and risk management techniques, and metric-based reporting to support robust governance.
