A small, independent, agile consultancy that has been delivering successful projects for many years.

We started our journey back in 2005. With the experiences of working with top-100 clients, it was clear that there was a need for a better way of delivering projects. We used some of the early techniques from the early adopters of agile, and found them to work very well.

From a project perspective, we had a lot of success from working with clients around project delivery. We built great teams and delivered some really great products. For us, successful and reliable project delivery was not enough - the projects needed to sit correctly within an organisational system to be most successfull.

We looked at the projects, and how they exist in the context of the organisation. The projects created perceived value, but to be truly valuable to the organisation, we needed a method of creating flow. We found Deming, and with his wisdom around System Thinking, we were able to create a model that meant that running the business with frequent releases became a lot easier and provided a lot more valuable to the end customer.

Dr. W. Edwards Deming taught that by adopting appropriate principles of management, organizations can increase quality and simultaneously reduce costs (by reducing waste, rework, staff attrition and litigation while increasing customer loyalty). The key is to practice continual improvement and think of manufacturing as a system, not as bits and pieces.

We have continued to work with some really good clients, and we continue to refine and work through are approaches.

Energy

Energy consumption has reduced globally which has forced many of the key energy companies to question their responsibilities and positioning within the market.

Enlightened organisations have placed their focus away from generation, to looking at key customer relationships and connected energies strategies. We have worked with generation, distribution and retailers within this market to deliver innovative agile-led projects.

Customer engagement and customer insights are key enablers for the retail sector. Customers wants seamless interactions, with bespoke product offerings tailored to them at a precise time to suit their needs.

For retailers, the back office operations is now as critical to customer success as the store front. Fraud detection, distribution, wholesale and customer aftersales are key processes that drive customer retention.

Echoing trends within the main retail sector, the challenge for automotive companies will be to offer a bespoke product, with an impeccable aftersales service.

All interactions with the manufacturer or retailer network needs to be consistent, and be data driven. For established manufactures this places large demands on their legacy data estate, and manufacturers are able to tap into this information through microservice data-driven strategies.
