THE WHOLE IS
MORE THAN THE
SUM OF ITS PARTS.
Projects leave their mark on the economy and many areas of our social life. And: projects mean change.
With ever faster development and increasing complexity in the markets, the classic waterfall models in project management have long since become obsolete in most companies. “Let’s do agile!” has been the buzzword in the corridors for years.
„But how does it actually work – this ‘agile’ thing? And: is there even THE right method for US?“
For us, agility means more than applying an agile methodology. Agility is a concept of preparing for the unpredictable. It is the quality of an organisation to react flexibly to changing conditions, while continuously learning, improving and evolving as a whole.
One of the challenges in the successful implementation of projects is to clearly define the project goals – even if the concrete project result is not yet clearly defined. And then to implement these goals in parallel with day-to-day business, usually with tight deadlines and costs and often with scarce resources.
Project Excellence comes from finding and applying the right approach for your project and your team, rather than following “pure doctrine” or trying to squeeze the project into a methodological framework.
For the success of your project, the method is only a means to achieve a goal. From more than twenty years of experience in coordinating projects, we have an extensive “toolbox” of different methods that we can use flexibly and according to the situation so that they exactly fit to your project and your organization. To support you and your team in achieving your individual goals in and with your organisation.
As Agile Coaches, we support you, your team, and your organisation in aligning their work along agile principles.
We accompany you from the brainstorming stage through the planning of the project, the team set-up and development, the analysis and optimisation of your business processes, the recording of professional and technical requirements to the successful implementation and completion of your project. To do this, we use various tools from frameworks such as Design Thinking, Lean, Kanban or Scrum – and when it makes sense, also in combination with classic project management tools.
NOTHING IN THE HISTORY OF LIFE IS MORE CONSTANT THAN CHANGE.
Business Analysis and Process Optimisation
Processes are business-critical levers of an organisation. A close look at the actual business processes with a focus on added value for your customers is the first step towards continuous improvement.
We support you and your process owner in capturing and analysing your end-to-end processes. Together with those involved in the process, we identify the optimisation potential with focus on planned change and develop the new target process together.
Requirements Engineering and Development of a Product Backlog
Determining the relevant requirements is the most important step in the development of business-relevant innovations. This applies to the introduction, replacement, or further development of IT systems just as it does to the development of a new product or service or changes to organizational structures.
IF I HAD ASKED PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANTED, THEY WOULD HAVE SAID »FASTER HORSES«.
The challenge in requirements management lies in considering and reconciling the many wishes and needs of different people and business areas (stakeholders). And to keep the focus: namely on the added value of the individual requirements for the innovation to be developed.
We support your product owner in scrutinizing the individual requirements with regards to their added value for the product or service and prioritizing them accordingly. Always with a view to the overall goal of the project. To exclude feature creep from the very beginning.
IF YOU AREN'T EMBARASSED BY THE FIRST VERSION OF YOUR PRODUCT, YOU SHIPPED TOO LATE.
