BUILD BETTER SOFTWARE

Dramatically lower software development costs and improve performance

WHAT WE DO

Our mission is to elevate the performance of software engineering teams through the proper application of agile principles. We do this through a customized combination of professional services and proprietary coaching and training software. Our software uses artificial intelligence and expert training content to ensure your teams reach their full potential, and continue to perform at their highest level.

SOFTWARE ONLY

  • Connect software to existing agile tools to identify potential improvement opportunities.
  • Quick training (4 hours) to align on concepts, terms and goals.
  • Establish velocity and predictability.
  • Coaching software provides visibility and links back to training.
  • Fixed bid: We share the risk of the transformation.
  • Goal is to prevent backsliding into old/bad habits.
  • Coaching software provides ongoing behavior support.
  • Once we are no longer on-site, the software is available to maintain good agile practices.

lucidLIFT Outcomes

Expertly Trained Teams

Teams will be trained in agile/scrum at a very high level with reinforcement delivered by expert coaches and software. Training is biased toward predictable software delivery.

Product Backlog

Teams will create, prioritize and size a backlog of user stories. The backlog is monitored 24 x 7 x 365 by our proprietary software, and alerts are generated when potential problems are detected. Nearly 100 facts about each backlog are constantly being evaluated.

Sprint Cadence

A common sprint cadence will be established for every team and each team will go through planning, backlog grooming demos and retrospectives during each sprint. The software will alert if sprint cadence deviations occur.

Velocity

Each team will establish velocity metrics and know how to use velocity for estimation and planning. The software will ensure that velocity is visible to all team members, and will alert if teams overcommit based on velocity history.

Visibility and Reporting

Management will have up to the minute visibility on the status of all projects, and will know how to use velocity to predict release timelines and budgets. The software will produce sprint-end reports in a human-readable, narrative form.

Risk Management

Through proper use of agile/scrum processes and aided by our software, teams and management will know well in advance when projects are at risk of missing commitments or due dates.

OUR SOFTWARE

(Patent pending, Serial #62/398.472)

Our proprietary software seamlessly connects to your existing agile tools (Jira, VersionOne, CA Agile Central, TFS, etc.). No external licensing is required.

The software collects nearly 100 facts (and counting!) about your projects, and uses artificial intelligence to send alerts and targeted training content based on your needs.

No agile coach can be with all of your teams at once, and continuously monitor all of your backlogs, but our software can, and at a small fraction of the cost!
