At DCG, we admire Sir Dave Brailsford, who turned UK Cycling from enthusiastic also-rans to a world power. Obviously, having talented individuals helped, but adding together small percentage changes to kit, processes and physiology led to huge gains in performance.
Sir Dave continues this relentless focus on facts and measurement with Team Sky. Careful adjustments achieve the small gains that, added together, set the team on a different level from the competition. Every change has a purpose, whether it’s to optimise the bikes, improve training, or even to help cyclists sleep better by bringing their own pillows on tour.
DCG believes that software development can use the same approach to improving project delivery. Like Sir Dave, we concentrate on measuring the facts and optimising processes to deliver significantly improved results.
We aim to enable clients to visualise the true value of software projects. Our Value Visualization Framework (VVF) is a quick and inclusive way of surfacing the business value of software change. Quantifying the business value of new features clarifies and accelerates prioritisation of the product backlog, leading to higher value delivery earlier than ever before.
Nasty crashes do sometimes happen in development, and our Project Triage Solution diagnoses and quantifies the changes needed to restore or salvage value.
Effective development processes, starting with metrics-based parametric estimates, aid good governance and enable organisations to deliver business change on time and on budget with fewer headaches.
