customer process improvement stories

We are proud of our customers and their great process improvement stories. It’s our privilege to be part of them.
After all, the thing we love most is to see our customers improve their processes and business results.

Our customer’s team needed to make peace between their managers’ desire to be involved and the team’s need for agile self-organization. We helped them solve it and get some exercise, too.

It turned out our customer was incredibly agile in all of the parts of their business, except software delivery. We helped them make the connection and win their top executives’ support.

When it came to process change, our customers’ developers were certain they had seen it all before. We persuaded them that we still had a few useful tricks up our sleeves.

Kanban boards at our enterprise customer went viral in ways we never expected. The finance, HR, and training teams were clamoring to learn how those boards and stickies could help them, too!
