Agile advisory services

If working successfully in an agile way was easy, then everyone would be doing it. Experience shows us that it takes expert direction to enable agile practices to become embedded in an organisation’s working processes.

That’s why we offer a blend of agile training, agile coaching and agile consulting and advisory services to ensure your new knowledge sticks and becomes second nature.

Our expert agile advisors will help you identify your pain points, work with you to identify solutions, and help you develop a strategy for agile improvement and transformation.

Types of agile consultancy

Our agile consultancy services are tailored to each client’s needs and are designed to be sustainable in the longer term. Clients approach us at many different stages in their agile journey. What we offer you depends upon where you are in the process of adopting agile and which services are most cost-effective for you.

Here are three examples:

Project launch consulting

Ironically, in the rush to become agile many organisations compromise the fundamental building blocks of a project. They then suffer the consequences over the longer term.

Our agile consultants will help you lay the agile project foundations correctly by creating tailored training events or workshops. These can range from a few hours to a few days, and will give your team focused hands-on help on any aspect of your upfront project work. This could cover things such as agile roles and responsibilities, scoping, planning, risk assessment, agile management strategies for quality and governance, and so on.

With the help of our experienced consultants you can be confident you will do it properly – saving you future headaches, improving delivery times and delivering greater value to your business.

Targeted consulting

Our agile consultants find that our customers suffer from many common agile problems. These are often about applying more general aspects of agile such as team collaboration, servant leadership, or value creation. Teams and organisations also struggle to apply what on paper are simple agile approaches and frameworks such as Scrum and Kanban, but applying these in a more traditional organisation becomes problematic.

Whatever the issues you are facing, you will find that specific targeted advice from an agileKRC consultant can save you many hours or even days. It is quite likely that the problem you’re struggling with is one we have solved many times before. Choose the easy route!

Remote support

Wouldn’t it be great if you could ‘phone a friend’ any time you had a problem? Well with agileKRC you can.

We provide several off-line consulting support packages that provide a very cost-effective solution to keep you moving forward. This type of consulting allows you to maximize the business benefits of agile working without slowing you down.

Agile consulting that works

As an agile consultancy that has worked with hundreds of organisations we have the experience to know which agile solutions work and which ones don’t. At agileKRC we have a tried and tested formula for taking you on your journey to agile so that you don’t get sold costly agile consulting solutions that don’t work for your organisation.

Assessment

We assess how you’re currently working and what you want to achieve.

Ignition

We take you through an initial building phase to strengthen your capabilities and carry out initial pilot work.

Implementation

The new ways of working are rolled out in a series of key steps, with built-in inspection and adaptation as you go along.

You could be looking to improve quality, reduce costs, increase throughput – whatever your goal, we can help you achieve it.

    Our agile consultants

    Choosing which agile consulting firm to work with is an important decision. To get the maximum benefit from consulting it is essential you pick an agile consulting company whose consultants have the experience, credibility and the proven ability to impart their knowledge and wisdom in a useful, accessible way.

    Because we understand how essential this is, we spend a great deal of time checking out and referencing all our agile consultants. We like to use the realists and not the theorists. There really is no substitute for learning in the heat of the battle! It is this experience combined with powerful communication skills that make our consultants stand out from the rest.

    Our consulting style

    agileKRC does not believe in off-the-peg consultancy. We believe that any agile consultancy package has to be tailor-made to suit your needs.

    This is why we like to run highly collaborative workshops to build a clear understanding of your agile transformation needs and thereby generate a feeling of partnership and ownership that will survive the test of time. Our style is friendly and professional, but importantly we tell it like it is.

    We are passionate about improving the way you work with agile. To succeed, we need to work with you, listen to you and understand you. That’s the way our help will have a lasting and beneficial impact on your business.
