Agile Technical Delivery Services

our teams follow the Agile delivery approach, having regular daily meetings to enable the communication of issues,  and opportunity to ensure progress is maintained. This approach allows the client’s business product managers to work alongside the project delivery members ensuring the promotion of the evolution of the solution, with close and regular communication.  Ensuring that time and scope are not compromised, any backlog developed is prioritised and focused on the delivery of critical items.  Sprints and associated meetings are strictly time-boxed to ensure they are efficient and agile delivery cloudfocused.  Outputs are regularly reviewed, with the client, to evidence progress and gain early feedback. Our approach is built on and around the Agile Manifesto, where the focus of all our interactions with the client, and other suppliers, is to maximise the benefit to the customer, by providing a continuous delivery of an  evolving solution. To do this successfully, we expect to embed all the relevant stakeholders involved into the delivery sprint teams.
