Everyone needs a hand sometimes.
We know it can be very difficult to maintain a right-sized, stable team for your need – challenges often call for an extra set of hands, or a skillset missing around the table. We’re well-versed in Enterprise challenges of all shapes, bringing fresh eyes, extra hands and specialist skills when you need it, and are most effective when able to contribute to output, quality & process to empower the combined team.
Flexibility is key
Flexibility is key
We regularly check in on the business goals & team fit to be ready to iterate the team shape as the business needs inevitably evolve. These checks can be as often as fortnightly, keeping a pulse on the team’s delivery, health, process, solution, budget burn-rate, and the upcoming backlog, to advise and be ready for change in team or direction.
Our approach, and our contracts, are designed flexible – malleable notice periods to get moving quickly and ready for inevitable changes in business direction, allowing a more dynamic approach to our clients’ needs.
Strategy & Process Coaching
Our experienced senior team and Practice Leads, from covering industries from retail to construction, neuromarketing to financial services, always enjoy engaging in more strategic IT planning whether it be infrastructure, architecture, resourcing, or non-trivial technical decisions e.g. offshore vs. nearshore, outsource vs. inhouse, off-the-shelf vs. bespoke, rebuild vs. refactor and numerous other complexities that come with being a CTO today.
Agile & SCRUM Coaching
From our experience in augmenting numerous functional and dysfunctional teams, our SCRUM certified Business Analysts are well-equipped to engage in Agile, SCRUM and overall process coaching whether it be onshore, offshore or hybrid – not merely by sprouting best practice (which is easy), but by immersing within the team to affect change, embarking on iterative improvements one sprint at a time.
Release & Change Coaching
Downstream of code, a lot is often left to be desired. Our experienced Architects, Team, and QA Leads really enjoy the challenge of introducing team-changing improvements around QA strategy, release/pipeline strategy, branching strategy, and environment strategy – again, not merely by sprouting best practice, but by immersing within the team to affect change.
Architecture & Code Oversight
Reporting to provide insight and recommendations into the structure, security, performance, testability, extend-ability and suitability of a given architecture, from the coded solution and design patterns used, to 3rd party components and release pipeline, to guide technical decision making around complex refactors, state of technical debt, and/or feasibility for rebuilds.
