Solving problems, building products and delivering great services through exceptional teamwork

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not currently able to deliver any classroom based training courses. We are in the process of adapting all of our content so that we can provide an equivalent service online. For more information please get in touch.

We can achieve great things when we work together.

But we're finding more and more, that in todays first-paced, complex, ever-changing world that our traditional ways of working can be more of a hinderance than a help in delivering products and services that people want to use. In some cases, so much so, that we deliver things that people don't want to use - now there's food for thought.

We need to find better ways of working together.

Let's turn on the lights. The answers are there, people just can't see them if they're in the dark.

There isn't one answer - there are lots of answers.

And therein lies the problem and the solution.

There is no one-way to solve any given problem, and the greater the complexity, the greater the number of ways in which the problem can be solved. The trick is knowing which one is going to deliver the best solution for users and the business.

Add on top of that, that the world does not stand still. Ever.

So, not only do we need to find the best solution for users and the business, we have to do so while the sand is shifting under our feet.

Scrum, Kanban, Lean UX, User Centred Design - the list goes on. Take your pick, mix & match.

In our armoury of methods, tools and techniques we have a huge arsenal that we can use to help us solve problems. Some of them solve specific problems, some solve bits of problems, and sometimes we might need to adapt them or use several tools together.

They all have value but it can be a full-time job just understanding where and when they prove their worth. Is scrum better to use for the delivery of digital services or is kanban? What approach is best to use with teams that are new to agile? How long should a sprint be?

We love learning about different tools, techniques and methods and our coaches have years of experience in using them in practice.

We approach all problems with an agile mindset.

Being agile is not about applying a process, framework or method. It's about thinking and working in a way where we value people - as individuals and as a team, we focus on continuously understanding users needs so that we can be sure that we deliver real value to them, and we resist imposing too much control.

It's about believing in honesty and transparency in everything we do to build shared understanding and believing that the key to being agile is building trust within teams, organisations and with customers.

That's what we're really about - helping organisations solve complex problems by getting people to work together in effective teams.

With an agile mindset we apply tools, techniques and methods to solve problems, deliver products and services. But more than that we shape people and teams - we change culture.

We help teams and organisations deliver the best possible products and services for their users, by equipping their teams with a user-centred, delivery-focused agile mindset, together with some agile techniques and skills.

We educate, coach and deliver solutions by being agile, rather by doing Agile. We can show you and your team how to be agile too.
