Agile Evolution Engagement

Case Study Agile

A major national bank transforms to an Agile model, driving organizational excellence and increasing tangible outcomes.

SITUATION

Our client needed a partner with Agile expertise to help them migrate 1,450 resources from Waterfall to Agile-based methodology. They wanted to build a ‘fail fast’ model for overall Agile evolution and were seeking a supplier who could provide skilled Agile coaches, scrum masters, and JIRA administrators to coach and teach their teams best practices for transformation. The client engaged us as their strategic partner for this multi-year project because of our extensive Agile transformation experience and deep team of subject matter experts. 

SOLUTION

We provided a team of Agile coaches and scrum masters who facilitated workshops, process improvements, role-based training, and incident resolution. After our initial support began and as the team excelled, the engagement expanded into assisting the client with building a full Agile Center of Excellence.

Our team coached client scrum masters, building the skill set and developing internal subject matter experts so our client could continue implementing Agile in-house. Additionally, our Agile coaches lead strategic discussions, presenting to C-level and senior leadership to help determine future direction and implement a cultural mindset shift among leadership.
