What would become possible for your company if you could expect bug-free software, as promised, every few weeks from your development teams? What if all of their time was available to implement new features because there are no bugs to troubleshoot, no bug lists to track, no endless meetings prioritising which bugs to fix first?
We help managers and technical teams achieve much higher productivity without any sacrifice in quality. We do this by coaching them in the use of Agile software practices and Lean Thinking. These methods work for any type of complex knowledge-intensive projects (software development, electronics development, biotech projects) any work where there are changing business circumstances and technical unknowns whose risks must be weighed every step of the way.
Lean and Agile practices also work for more predictable, routine projects, too. Traditional waterfall practices can also work for more routine projects, but they fail badly when projects involve high levels of changing requirements and uncertainty.
Agile software teams are small— usually between five and nine people. They deliver working, fully tested software every few weeks. They seldom encounter more than one or two bugs per month of development effort. Healthy agile teams routinely achieve astonishing productivity increases— on the order of 300% and higher.
Refer to Nancy Van Schooenderwoert's article, Embedded Agile Project by the Numbers with Newbies for detailed metrics.
When Agile teams are supported by a Lean organisation, they can continue increasing their productivity even further. Lean and Agile are based on the same founding principles. They complement each other.
We help you take it beyond agile teams to create an agile enterprise. That's what Lean Thinking is all about. Lean and Agile go together for any organisation that produces software, or software-intensive products or services.
We help you understand how and why to combine Lean and Agile. Once you understand the fundamentals, you will know which practices you need and why. You'll be able to confidently drive and optimise the value creation engine of your company.
