Agile Consulting

Nurturing high performance teams

Agile Coaching

Agile Coaching is the best way to accelerate your delivery maturity whilst nurturing better behaviours and capabilities. With decades of experience our coaches are able to engage with teams of all maturity levels and quickly understand the issues.

Delivering valuable insights that have an immediate impact on performance. The Solutioneers Coaching Service gives you access to all the benefits of high quality coaching without the commitment of having a full time coach on-staff. 

Delivery Diagnostic

The Agile diagnostic has enabled our clients to understand why Agile adoption isn’t delivering the desired results and provides a clear roadmap to get them back on track.

We identify, capture and understand how Agile & Lean ways of working are deployed by your teams today, explore any issues and highlight the potential for improvement. Our 38 point Agile Diagnostic covers Technical, Product Management, Requirements Management, Testing, DevOps, Operations, Delivery and PMO. Our analysts engage with Management, Customer and Delivery Teams to get a comprehensive perspective of your current development capability.

Our approach is data driven to reduce the risk of cognitive bias and establish evidence in your existing processes and systems to validate any issues found. All the diagnostics we’ve conducted have uncovered systemic problems across our client organisations that, once resolved, have a profoundly positive impact on performance and culture.

The Agile Diagnostic produces a roadmap for a successful Agile transformation program providing you, your key stakeholders and executives with clear direction and an action plan for success.

Delivery Assurance

Are late delivery and missed deadlines impacting your business relationships and keeping you awake at night?

We provide an independent view of the ‘true position’ of your critical projects based on fact.

What level of confidence do you really have in the status of your projects?

Are you really on track with delivery? Are your teams sometimes overly optimistic with their delivery predictions? Do your delivery partners sometimes “sugar coat” status updates resulting in uncertainty?

We are your ‘critical friend’ to provide an independent view on the true status of your software project. We deal in data, evidence and fact. We avoid opinion, hearsay, and emotion.

Projects don’t suddenly overrun – they slowly slip, one day at a time, building up to a big implosion with a fallout of destroyed reputation. 

Our assurance approach provides you with a real-time early warning, buying you valuable time to course correct and manage expectations appropriately.

  • Independent and expert – a safe pair of hands
  • Increased transparency enables you to make the better decisions when they count
  • Your ‘critical friend’ to provide true project status
  • Pragmatic and constructive guidance to course correct distressed projects
  • Real-time early warning preventing your teams from ‘going dark’ on you.
