Agile Development

Agile requires a fundamental change within an organization in how work is managed. Our Agile consulting and services can help you effectively make the move towards a "Leadership and Team" management model in order to quickly and effectively implement Agile or improve your current Agile delivery.

While we believe that using Scrum for software development and other projects delivers real benefits to organizations (and we love introducing it to those not already using it), we recognize that Scrum alone is not sufficient for organizations that need to deploy Agile more broadly.  

For many years, we have advocated techniques for scaling Agile, taking a portfolio and/or PMO view of Agile working practices. We recognize and value the approaches embodied in The Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) and the Dynamic Systems Development Method (DSDM) and we help our clients deploy these techniques as required. Understandably, many of our clients need to build their Agile practices around outsourced capabilities, and we can help with the implementations and the contracts for these situations. 

We can help you apply Agile techniques to rescue value from failing projects, establish a plan for a successful Agile implementation, offer support with an on-site Agile coach and provide sessions on the roles of IT and the business in Agile projects. Our Agile team features Certified Scrum Masters and Certified SAFe Program Consultants (SPC4).

Our consultants are always available to speak with your senior management team about our core focus areas, including: Software Estimation, Software Sizing, Value Visualization and Agile.

 

Our Agile offerings include:
  • Agile Estimation – Develop a process to estimate your Agile projects.
  • Agile Metrics - Track and use team, program and portfolio-level metrics for improved performance.

“Working with [DCG] on the AgilityHealth Radar was a thoroughly positive and professional experience. It was well facilitated and provided us with a good amount of food for thought and self- improvement. I highly recommend that anyone who might be on the fence about it try out the service and judge for themselves."

- Keith Kendall, Manager of Application Development, The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

 

"It's frustrating that there are so many failed software projects when I know from personal experience that it's possible to do so much better - and we can help." 
- Mike Harris, DCG Owner
