Advice for Digital & Agile

Agile advice and coaching: Making digital teams more effective: I provide advice on agile working and digital business to leaders and teams creating digital products – usually software. The companies I work with come from many fields as different as healthcare and surveying.

“As a result of working with Allan our processes have improved, we are more efficient, more creative and our projects are increasing in terms of measurable output. He is highly recommended if you want to develop your programming department to achieve more.” Toby Parkins, Director, HeadForwards

I have a track record of helping teams and managers improve delivery – meet deadlines, improve quality – and increase value delivered. Each case is different and some take longer to fix than others. Sometimes a few hours of agile advice can make a real difference, other times I give advice on agile over a period of months.

Agile advice

You can hire me for a little as a day! – Although I usually work with executives and teams for longer periods I like to space days out, that allows you to put my agile advice into action and together we have something to reflect on.

Agile advice sessions often follow Agile development training, or a Development Health Check. Other times we just start having agile advice sessions and see where we go.

Agile advice sessions usually happen in one-on-one or in small groupsm typically teams. Reoccurring session allow individuals and organizations time to think and optimise for the digital future.

I won’t lock you into a long contract. I usually price Digital and Agile consulting services supermarket style: “Buy some days, get some more free”, say “Buy 3 agile consulting days get 1 consulting day free”. I find this aligns our interests without locking you in.

My expert associates allows me to call in specialists in particular area and skills. For example I commonly involve a technical coach to help and different technology stacks require different coaches. The right coach for a PHP team is probably not a C++ coach!

Clients

Most of my work is with smaller technically focused companies, e.g. Sullivan Cuff Software Ltd, Research, Instruments, Thunderhead, Science Warehouse, and many others.

I also work with larger technology companies like ARM and Siemens, and technology departments of corporation, like Virgin Atlantic Airways, Merrill-Lynch and Fugro Intersite and other companies in the Fugro group. Some of the larger companies have had multiple runs of the same course, e.g. Fugro have had over a dozen deliveries of the Agile Foundations in the UK, Holland, Norway, Australia and the USA.
