GENERAL LEAN-AGILE COACHING SERVICES

LEAN-AGILE DELIVERY SERVICES


If your organization is more interested in "doers" working alongside coaches, then AgileSavant can provide highly skilled agile practitioners, software developers, system architects / engineers and DevOps professionals who can step in and accelerate the delivery of value to your internal stakeholders or external customers.  We can bring in the resources and skills needed to rapidly stand up an Agile Team, or a Team of Agile Teams such as an Agile Release Train, or ART, that effectively defines, builds, tests and releases software leveraging the cadence and synchronization that is indicative of the Scaled Agile Framework, or SAFe.  AgileSavant has software developers / testers who are experienced in top coding languages such as JavaScript, Python, Java, Ruby, PHP, C++, C#, CSS, Go, etc., who are also experienced in leveraging Scrum for project management, Kanban to manage product flow, and XP engineering practices that increase velocity / throughput, lowers lead / cycle time, and increases code quality.

Our partnership in this business agility transformation effort shall allow you organization to focus on both the innovation and growth of new ideas as well as the execution, delivery, operation, and support of existing solutions.  SAFe is not just for technical teams!  You can run your entire business through the dual operating system.

SAFe ART LAUNCH AND EXECUTION COACHING SERVICES


For organizations seeking to align their entire enterprise to Lean-Agile processes and methodologies as defined by SAFe-- or a subset of its enterprise portfolio, AgileSavant's Senior Enterprise Transformation Consultants can work with your organization's leadership to assess the enterprise strategy, mission, vision and plan of execution and better align these to Lean-Agile concepts-- with the goal of accelerating the organizations' ability to deliver value to its clients, customers or constituents through the formation of Agile Release Trains, or ARTs.  Our Lean-Agile Transformation engagements start at the enterprise level (preferably the C-Suite), where we review the enterprise Strategic Themes, establish a Lean-Agile Center of Excellence, or LACE to steer the transformation effort, and create one or several ARTs to develop and support the organization's value streams.  AgileSavant will take your organization through all of the steps within the SAFe Implementation Roadmap to help you establish your first ART, then continue the transformation (if need be) to extend to additional ART launches.  Once your ART(s) are successfully launched, our Enterprise Transformation Consultant(s) will stay around through ART execution as long as you need us-- be it one Program Increment, 10 or more!
