Agile Consulting

Agile Consulting with SitePen

Achieving agility is more than instating some popular practices. Agility is measured in real outcomes rather than checkboxes and involves dynamism and responsiveness to market forces. Sitepen has the experience to understand a software team’s dynamic and fine tune a process that helps it excel, as well as to understand cultural factors that can impact the achievement of the desired results.

We provide the following as part of our agile consulting offering:

  • Analysis of your current scenario to understand culture, opportunities for improvement, and desired outcomes

  • Recommendations on short term changes to help your team make quick course corrections to get operational and productive quickly

  • Recommendations on medium term changes to build momentum and bring your teams up to a high functioning level

  • Training for your teams to ensure shared understanding of target practices and culture reset

  • On-going coaching to “run beside” the team and assist with issues until they are fully independent

We specialize in Scrum, Kanban, and Lean Startup methods, and our agile consulting practices will greatly accelerate your team’s ability to deliver the high quality products at the right moment for the market.

Agile Consulting Benefits

A truly functional agile process not only helps your team level up, but gives them the tools to continue evolving and solving deep problems so you can reap the benefits of a responsive and engaged team.

Improved Clarity

Agile consulting helps your team realize added clarity in its web development. At any point in time, the team knows what everyone else is doing and can adjust or collaborate as needed to keep things moving. Obstacles get recognized and solved for quickly, and product managers always know what the team needs of them at any point in time to deliver requested functionality.

Faster Deployment

The market evolves too quickly for confidence around the long term releases that were the norm a few years ago. Agile consulting helps your team understand how to identify the most targeted product that is needed to determine viability and get it out the door quickly. Not only that, but because the team is building to high quality standards continuously, you have the flexibility to deploy on increasingly short timeframes, providing a continuous flow of value to your users.

Increased Team Satisfaction

Agile consulting provides the basis for a well implemented agile practice that results in sustainable, regular pacing, provides teams with a predictable meeting cadence, and gives a flatter, more empowered organizational structure. Teams get more satisfaction from a productive work experience, benefit from less burnout, and are able to directly impact their own practices and working agreements. All of this leads to greater morale and more engaged team members who are better able to bring their creativity and productivity to the table.

Accelerate Innovation

When a team builds a product from a set of preconceived requirements, the chances for misses are high. One of the most powerful aspects of agile methodologies is the feedback gained through rapid iterations of the entire lifecycle: requirements, design, development, and testing. Full, rapid iterations get a working product in the hands of the end user as quickly as possible, allowing for early verification that needs have been met and sparking new ideas about how to best adjust the next goal.

Greater Control

Using an agile framework, team members are empowered to collaborate on solutions, bringing their individual strengths to the project. This process sparks building realizations, allowing the team to be greater than the sum of its parts. This also increases buy-in, energy, and engagement across teams, and ultimately results in a better product.

Choosing an Agile Consulting Company

Many companies have a shallow, rules-based approach to agile implementation. SitePen understands that what matters is outcomes and team fit. We’re prepared to work with you to customize a solution that takes your organizational scenario, culture, and team personality into account, and not just offer a templated approach. Don’t just “do agile” - be agile.

Agile Consulting FAQs

How Can Agile Consulting Help with Development?

Agile consulting helps teams understand the mindset required to effectively use the agile process, as well as the end goals that their process should support. As a result, development becomes more collaborative and more efficient, with higher quality outcomes.

Why is Agile Consulting Important?

Agile consulting helps teams understand where their opportunities lie and how to transform to achieve their goals. It gives teams the tools and training they need to implement a high-functioning and continuously improving agile process.

What is the Difference Between Agile and Other Methodologies

Agile provides teams with a lightweight process that supports them in collaborating with stakeholders and quickly creating valuable, working product increments that keep visibility high. It reduces the risks inherent in the waterfall methodology, such as out-of-date requirements and cascading schedule impacts, and minimizes wasted work when product pivots are needed.
