HIGHLIGHTS OF OUR AGILE CONSULTING COOPERATION
Tailored KPI-driven consulting engagement
We define the scope of the Agile consulting service based on the analysis of your situation, covering the areas of Agile project management consulting and software consulting where applicable. Next, we define target KPIs that will measure the efficiency of the adopted Agile methodology from different perspectives:
- Software quality (software availability, bugs found in production/per iteration, user satisfaction score).
- A team’s performance (amount of work completed per iteration).
- Business outcomes from process improvement (actual budget vs. planned budget, time to market).
Agile adoption across all team functions
We organize an end-to-end Agile process that covers the development and related functions, including business analysis, UX and UI design, DevOps, and QA.
