Teams engaged in large programs can lose sight of the main requirement: high-quality delivery. Staying on schedule, implementing requirements accurately, and managing changes in scope and personnel can all get in the way of progress—yet maintaining positive momentum is key to success.
Our experts work closely with your team to determine the exact current status of your project—and to identify the challenges that must be overcome for successful delivery. As part of our way of working we:
Prioritize project tasks by business need and technical risk
- Split the project into small manageable iterations
- Increase visibility and expand the involvement of all stakeholders
- Ensure the problem domain is fully understood, and that the team is focused on the business problem specifically
We share our library of practices with you, leveraging the practices that will make the greatest difference to your particular project. Taking a practice-based approach helps you achieve dramatic results with minimal effort.
Our mentors actually join your team, guiding you to successful delivery and helping you maintain and build momentum. You will see improvement in your organization, control and confidence within the first iteration of improvement (typically six weeks).
The best results are achieved when you adopt a practical way of working, attending to both the business and IT sides of the software development endeavour. Working together in a smart way will help all sides of your business address key issues and improve efficiency.
How we work with you
Our mentors involve themselves directly in your project, work with senior technical staff and project managers to assess status and prioritize the issues that need to be addressed.
We then identify the key practices you need to implement. We often encounter people who say “We do not have time to change because we have to deliver.” In fact, you have a choice: to continue on the road to unsuccessful delivery or change direction and move toward success.
We make small, palatable changes that quickly and directly demonstrate value—and never implement change for change’s sake.
