New perspectives with agile software development

New products and services are needed to respond to changing requirements on the part of markets and customers. This not only demands flexible software solutions, but also new business models.

New digital ideas can be implemented quickly and coherently thanks to agile software development, with the methods used also supporting innovations directly. This is because the learning-driven error culture and transparent handling of findings encourages an eagerness to experiment in the company.

Keeping an eye on value creation with individual software

Agile principles mean greater flexibility, faster speed and better-quality results. Prototypes of software solutions that you can test, assess and enhance are created in short development cycles.

During the course of collaboration, our experts focus on ensuring the greatest possible benefits for your customers and added value for your company.

Shortening time to market

Our expertise in agile methods is the key to a fast time to market. Moreover, important findings can already be established during the project and the further course of action optimised. Our teams work in a consistently agile manner, regardless of whether Scrum, Kanban, LeSS, Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), Nexus, Scaled@Scale or other methods.

Zero-bug policy – An amusing project empirical report

The entertaining empirical report looks at a project that threatens to fail under the pressure of too many bugs. By switching to a zero-bug policy, error mountains were successfully dismantled and the motivation of the developer teams – which had hit rock-bottom – was restored. Almost as an aside, we learn many details about what a zero-bug policy involves.
