Increase speed, improve visibility and better manage change with our transformative Agile services.

Unlocking the power of Agile principles is about so much more than implementing a software development methodology; it requires a cultural shift across teams and organisations. As practitioners of Agile software development ourselves, at Box UK we’re ideally placed to support you in making this shift – helping transform your organisation into one that innovates, leads, adapts and delivers, successfully and consistently.

Transform your organisation

Whether you already use elements of Agile project methodologies and are looking to strengthen your skills, or have come to the approach to support your wider digital transformation strategy objectives, our consultants will begin by assessing your current setup. This allows us to understand what changes need to be made to ensure you get the most out of the approach – looking at the critically important cultural considerations as well as issues surrounding process, team formation and organisational structure.

Any insights we uncover are fed into clearly documented plans that will put you on the path to Agile victory. We know that one size doesn’t fit all, so your transformation plan will be unique to you – combining elements from disparate methodologies and supported with collaborative workshops and mentoring sessions from our Agile consultants.

Agile coaching services

While Agile has been popularised through software development, its project management principles are relevant and effective across a whole range of industries and departments, and can prove particularly valuable in supporting an organisation’s digital transformation strategy.

Our Agile coaching consultants design and deliver transformative programme to provide you and your team with the knowledge and skills needed not just to do Agile, but to be Agile – responsive, flexible and nimble yet constantly focused on the goal in hand.

Team members writing ideas onto post-it notes

With our team of expert Agile coaches, we specialise in bespoke and consultative Agile coaching services – where we’ll work with you to define a programme of activity based on your specific context and pain points; for example development in Scrum, Agile reporting, enterprise Agile coaching, remote working and Agile, or what happens in a Sprint.

Whatever your particular needs however, our Agile coaching consultants will give you an understanding of the core principles and practices associated with the Agile framework, and a roadmap for implementing these within your specific environment.

You’ll also walk away from Agile coaching having understood:

  • Roles and responsibilities in an Agile team
  • The importance of prioritisation, and methods to achieve this
  • Methods for Agile planning, scoping and estimation
  • The delivery structure in Agile projects
  • The critical importance of iteration, collaboration and feedback – and how these principles help deliver better projects and products

Agile services in action

Jaguar Land Rover

To stay competitive, it’s critical for automotive manufacturers to ensure their software engineering practices remain at the cutting-edge.

Our technical and business consultants have helped Jaguar Land Rover do just that, by delivering prioritised recommendations to support their diagnostics team in a move towards Agile methods of working, which not only help safeguard the velocity, quality and predictability of releases, but also enable the organisation to react more rapidly to new trends and opportunities.

BACP

When they embarked on a major rebrand, the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy wanted to ensure their processes were optimised to support not only its success, but that of all subsequent projects too.

Working with an expert Box UK Agile coach delivered against these objectives, not only increasing transparency, engagement and communication – and speeding up the delivery of tasks – but also helping drive cultural changes to ensure a solid and sustainable transformation journey.

Risk Decisions

When Risk Decisions asked Box UK to help enhance the performance of their risk management tool, we not only delivered designs that did just this, but also introduced them to new ways of working that would help ensure long-term success.

Through regular ‘surgeries’ the client was able to embrace Agile techniques that encouraged iterative review and testing, providing an efficient and effective way to resolve problems encountered as the new tool began to take shape and supporting a more user-centred approach.
