Securing Successful Deliveries

How Agile coaching helped this cyber security firm find the keys to consistency


A cybersecurity firm hired us to help them implement Agile, with the hope of reducing overtime, and increasing on-time deliveries. Our Agile coach helped the client start with a few well designed cross-functional teams and then expand to a total of six Agile teams, each of which was trained in Agile, coached in estimation and backlog creation, and aided in learning and improvement. The results have been impressive so far. Features that used to take six months just to be planned are now being planned and implemented in two weeks. Overtime has been reduced from three months to about two weeks, with some teams actually finishing early. Release cycles are down from 18 months to 3 months, with quality up and features more in line with end-user expectations. The best news is, this company is just beginning and continues to improve with every sprint.
