2. What are you looking to work on?
Running a business is no easy feat: with a variety of departments, employees, and tasks to monitor and maintain, finding a way to condense this into a manageable system is one of the most sought after business solutions. And we just so happen to have it.
Agile methodology is a process from which a team can manage a project by breaking it up into a variety of stages. At each stage, the individual members of your team collaborate and improve it until a project is completed in a much more efficient manner that produces high quality results.
Improving the efficiency of a business doesn't just encompass the new software you downloaded, or even plugging in your latest hardware - it's a change that needs to include the entire organization. If you want to shake up your business and save time on your 9-to-5, you need to start with an Agile transformation.
It’s your business, it’s your business solution. We kickstart the process by determining your ideas, issues, and concerns, bringing together your business’ goals and our technological know-how. We then follow this sketch in the next step.
Once we’ve aligned your business with the suitable Agile framework, we walk you through the fundamental building blocks of Agile - such as sprints, planning sessions, Agile teams, and pair programming - and assemble your tailored solution.
Your business should aim to succeed - not stagnate. It follows that your business solutions should match your business as it evolves, and this is why our services don’t cease after you hit ‘launch’. You need to uphold your competitive edge.
PERSONALISE THE EXPERIENCE
Whilst harnessing the capabilities of Agile principles might not translate to a personalised experience for your customers, ensuring greater collaboration and higher quality on your marketing projects is how you can promise the personal touch.
ENGAGE WITH THE NEED FOR ENGAGEMENT
By tapping into the improved efficiency Agile methodology can provide, your employees can devote more of their time to supporting your customers - from the initial marketing to communication overtime.
ENFORCE EFFICIENCY VIA TECHNOLOGY
With teamwork firmly on the table, ensuring each employee is utilising their skillset to their best effect can elevate the efficiency of your business. Plus, with a variety of people giving input on individual projects, issues and insights can be picked up and applied faster.
Director of Technology, Simply Brands
We start with your business. It begins with a consultation that sketches out your concerns, your aims, and all the in-between for your business. Once you’ve brought your business’ details to the table, we can bring our tech know-how.
The first thing we do is consider your business' size, type, and the industry it operates in to determine the projects you will need management for, and the nature of your future Agile methodology. Sourcing a solution might seem an obvious aim for any business, but it’s finding a scalable solution that really matters.
This is also where we begin that dialogue with your team, adjusting and adapting your Agile methodology to your business as it shifts with the ebb and flow of its industry, and follows its own best practices.
Once we’ve decoded your business, we begin by instilling the methodology into your entire organization. And this starts by settling on your framework, the most popular of which include Scrum, Kanban, Extreme Programming, and DSDM.
We then integrate the other core components of Agile methodology into your business, with training programmes for your staff, Agile coaches for the consistent implementation of the methodology, the promotion of specific practices and processes for your business, and tools which your team can harness to complete the transformation.
This might be more of a cultural shift in your business as opposed to simply downloading some software, but that’s not to say it shouldn’t be as valuable at hitting ‘install’.
As stated before, our Agile methodology services are not hardware you can plug in, or some code we can run to solve that problem. This is a company-wide, cultural transformation that can have as effective an impact as automating your customer service emails.
But just because we’ve rethought your company culture doesn’t mean we aren’t always rethinking it. As with all of our services, maintenance is just as important as delivering it in the first place; we keep the conversation open with your team, sourcing new ways to practice efficiency in alignment with your business as it shifts and settles, and perfecting your team's agile training.
You might not be able to predict the future, but you can realign your businesses as it comes. And we can help you with that.
