Random Analysis, a name you can trust
If you are contemplating transitioning your organisation to Agile ways of working, then you have probably already read numerous reports and editorials on the advantages of Agile delivery and all the improvements you can expect in terms of speed of delivery, quality of outcome and most importantly, reduced costs; but have you thought about the challenges you may face along the way?
When organisations begin their Agile transformation, one of their first challenges is understanding the roles necessary to support the initiative; for example, one of the most critical but often a new concept for many organisations new to Agile delivery, is the role of the ‘Scrum Master’. The most frequently asked question is "What makes the Scrum Master role different from that of a Project Manager?" The differences are important and, in our experience, understanding them is crucial to Agile success.
A strong corporate culture not accustomed to the Agile mindset can also be a difficult environment in which to implement Agile methods. In some cases, the company’s culture and practices may reward non-Agile milestones while inadvertently discouraging Agile success. In other words, If the correct framework for the new delivery concept is not in place, Agile adoption can be extremely difficult. When a company maintains a non-Agile framework and then tries to shoe-horn in Agile practices, they often end up accomplishing less at greater cost while also achieving lower quality results which, ultimately leads them to somehow conclude that, it is Agile that does not work.
Random Analysis based in Leatherhead, Surrey are Agile experts, specialising in helping SMEs and LEs transition from Waterfall to Agile delivery processes. Our services include:
Agile training workshops
We combine powerpoint presentations, business cases and discussions to create an effective learning experience; an optional online assessment on conclusion of the workshops assess the level of Agile knowledge transfer. Take a look at our Agile training workshop services for course features.
Our professional and highly motivated Agile coaches will be responsible for creating and improving Agile processes within your team or organisation by spreading industry best practices between different teams, integrate Agile teams with non-Agile practices and measure the results of the transition.
Business change and process automation
The COVID-19 pandemic refocussed businesses on resilience, for many that resulted in an acceleration of the business process automation agenda. Automation combined with contextual intelligence can provide a route to greater agility, reduced risk, a better delivery experience and stronger growth.
Working closely with your teams, we can map you existing processes using UML diagrams enabling us to identify process gaps, inefficient or repetitious tasks. Once the process optimisations have been agreed, we can proceed to automation with bespoke interfaces and system workflows enabling your teams to focus more easily on the business of generating growth.
We are also fully versed with the UK central government/public sector GDS Digital by Default Service Design Standards, G-Cloud and DOS framework procurement processes.
