At Scott Logic, we work in partnership with our clients to deliver value to their business and the customers they serve. Assured Agile is our approach to making good on our delivery commitments.
We augment widely used and well understood agile frameworks, such as Scrum, Kanban and SAFe, with a "toolkit" of practices that together provide a foundation for successful delivery. Pragmatic application of these frameworks and practices allow us to deliver positive user outcomes, whilst maintaining effective project governance and control.
Planning is a continuous, iterative activity, where plans are constantly refined as a result of greater understanding and reduced uncertainty.
We believe in having a simple risk register with concise information and a focus on the key risks. We’re also proactive in identifying, assessing and communicating the risks.
Adoption of the continuous delivery mindset and engineering practices brings tangible benefits, from reduced release risk and believable progress, to increased user feedback cycles and streamlined delivery.
We work in partnership with our clients, promoting a “one team” approach that makes the most of the knowledge and experience on both sides
We provide a "bridge" between the needs of the project and the requirements of the organisation, focusing on information that informs decision-making, manages change, and helps measure progress.
Our experienced consultants believe in working alongside your team members, rather than imposing their vision on them. As one team, we will challenge each other to make projects better.
We are committed to a strong and effective approach to delivery. We can help you build a process that takes user views into account, channels the aims of both management and other stakeholders, and delivers ahead of expectations.
It is far easier to judge a project with clear aims. By pinpointing exactly what can and should be achieved, we can help you deliver a more focused and satisfying project.
A common misconception I have frequently observed in organisations that are adopting agile is around using story points for planning, forecasting and progress tracking. Long- and mid-term planning in agile can have devastating effects on teams, which is why I’d like to shed some light on it and talk about how the situation can be tackled in an agile way.
