Portfolio and Program Consulting

focus on outcomes.

How can you align governance and project and portfolio management with Agile processes and practices? How do you manage the change associated with Agile adoption?

Broader organizational issues are often overlooked in Agile transitions. Delivery teams are constrained when the other parts of the enterprise are not aligned with Agile processes. This results in frustrating planning sessions, lower team morale, and difficulty delivering high-quality products in a timely fashion. At the enterprise level this usually means that priorities are not communicated effectively and that teams are not provided the support and training they need to be successful.

LitheSpeed consultants are world leaders in scaling agile. We will partner with your organization to develop a mindful, strategic approach that best fits your organization, and helps you drive towards desired business outcomes.

  • Speed decisions by empowering teams as small entrepreneurial units that own the full product lifecycle.
  • Improve adaptation by equipping teams with more direct access to stakeholders and users.

Shift Right:
DevOps

  • Focus first on known bottlenecks in the delivery pipeline.
  • Get meaningful operational data around usage patterns, revenue and defects through the latest deployments.
  • Use the data to learn and improve both what you build and how you build it.

Our development team was in a state of disarray, we needed education, process, and solutions to the chaos. We were hoping Lithespeed could give us a base level of Scrum knowledge for the entire team as well as the executive team so we could be aligned in our efforts. We absolutely feel like the Lithespeed engagement gave us what we were asking for and more, they gave our team a sense of excitement for the process and what it could bring to the team.
