Agile & Lean Coaching

Are your stand-ups too long? What about your retros? Does it really matter?

Since the advent of Agile software development techniques, a great deal of hype has come along with the success that being agile brings. Because of this, it can be easy to lose track of what matters from what does not, particularly when it comes to selecting ceremonies (practices) from the myriad of Agile frameworks, like Scrum, Extreme Programming (XP), Lean and DevOps.   Unfortunately, this makes it a little harder to adopt Agile. 

Even worse, many organizations successfully adopt Agile software development, but never align it with their business strategy. Consequently, their successful software development work yields little business value.

Cedar Point Consulting provides common sense Agile Coaching in a domain often dominated by hype.  By helping our clients to apply “just enough” structure and process for their Agile teams, we help to achieve optimal performance based on your organization’s size, culture and industry — without creating the same type of straight-jacket that the SDLC once brought.  Because of our business acumen, we also specialize in aligning your Agile development with your business strategy — an area where other Agile Coaching organizations struggle.

Our Agile and Lean Coaching services include:

  • Agile transformations at the small team and enterprise-level.
  • Agile assessments to help you gauge how agile your organization truly is.
  • Business – Agile alignment to ensure your new-found agility brings strategic business value.
