Agile / Scrum
Many of the management and methodology issues that have plagued IT development teams for decades. Our highly experienced Agile management consultants will work directly with executives, the PMO and selected teams to help ensure success by avoiding pitfalls that constrain teams and frustrate executives. In practice, our agile management team dynamically adapts to the circumstances at hand, offering both tactical and strategic assistance as appropriate. As clients adopt scrum, our team can serve as Product Owners, Scrum Masters, or Team Members with a cross-functional skill-sets.
Much like construction and manufacturing project workflows, waterfall methodology is a sequential design process. This means that as each of the eight stages (conception, initiation, analysis, design, construction, testing, implementation, and maintenance) are completed, the developers move on to the next step. Being established years ago, some clients still feel most comfortable with this methodology. Our consultants adapt to this lifecycle environment to support and bring value add to solutions using this methodology.
Hybrid agile or hybrid scrum is an adaptation of applying some key scrum concepts into a waterfall development workflow and/or environment. Or in larger organizations where the core business is using waterfall, yet a strategic project is using scrum to deliver solutions faster and more iterative. For years, our consultants have been helping customers work in these environments and addressing issues that are unique to this situation.
