Agile Unified Process Services

By: Ivar Jacobson International  09-12-2011

Ivar Jacobson International provides high quality services for customers implementing large scale agile software development, including an agile variant of the unified process.

We understand it is vital to implement change only where necessary and to introduce new techniques only where they will improve delivery. Our consultants lead by example – they are hand picked not only for their extensive experience and capability in their subject area, but also for their ability to teach, mentor and inspire others.

We like to get involved from the start in contributing to the delivery of your projects, and only make small incremental changes that will provide the maximum value in the shortest time.

Our consultants become members of your team to help solve issues, implement new practices and make sure that your agile development project or program operates as efficiently as possible.

Business/IT Alignment: 

We help you to establish effective communication between your business and technical teams, so that real stakeholder needs are understood, requirements are accurately captured, and valuable solutions are delivered to the business. 

High-performance Teams: 

We help teams identify and develop the competencies they require for project success. We believe that open and clear communications, and high individual morale and team spirit, are as equally important as technical abilities. Going beyond basic training and mentoring, we become part of your team—rolling up our sleeves and working alongside you to provide practical, experiential learning. Starting hands-on and becoming increasingly hands-off as knowledge transfer progresses, we equip your people with the right skills and capabilities to ensure that productivity and quality of output are maximised. 

Projects that Deliver: 

We help your projects to deliver value early and often by adopting agile and iterative practices. Optimising predictability is often just as important as reducing time to market – both of which help to reinforce trust between business and IT.

Agile Software Development Life Cycle

Separating risk identification from identifying risk mitigation and risk response strategies, and demonstrate how to build them directly into the project plan. Our approach involves a full risk assessment every few weeks, and the development of plans that focus on producing executable code to minimize risk.


Iterative Development Lifecycle

Our processes have to be lean – focussed and lightweight – whilst being flexible enough to be used in a wide range of engagements from straightforward software development to broader business change projects and service contracts – IJI has helped us achieve that goal.. Tony Drahota, Head of Solution Requirements & Architecture Practice, Application Services, Fujitsu.


Delivering Increased Business Value with UML and Use Cases

As the father of use cases, Ivar Jacobson himself has more than 30 years’ experience eliciting requirements and documenting them through the use-case approach. At Ivar Jacobson International, we have a number of practices that help us implement change in a way that is practical, efficient and easy to understand.


Agile Project Management Methodologies

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 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.


Scaling Agile

Drawing on our foundational practices for guidance, we keep documentation to a minimum and instead focus on maximizing smart communication throughout the organization. In software development, that change often involves establishing an agile approach that provides the tangible advantages of fast and efficient software production.
