We’re All About the Flow
Where Lean & Agile Meet
The concept of FLOW is at the heart of how we help clients build and leverage what Agile development teams are capable of producing. While others focus narrowly on training and coaching Agile teams, we recognize that achieving real transformation must also include helping clients re-synchronize the broader organization so that the benefits of Agile team cadence and speed can be realized. We call this Getting In the Flow.
If speed, agility, productivity, efficiency and continuous innovation are important to you, then FLOW is everything. When we effectively connect Agile Teams with Lean Flow, all of these outcomes are possible.
When launching Agile teams, we must harmonize the up and downstream workflows of an organization, otherwise we have failed the team and our client organization. Brad Murphy, CEO of Gear Stream
Agile is the Foundation, not the Destination
Will succeeding with Agile assure you of better financial and innovation outcomes? The answer is maybe, and that’s where Gear Stream can help.
We believe passionately and have consistently proven that Agile values and practices are the bedrock of helping teams produce software faster, at higher quality and with greater agility than ever before. We have also learned over the last ten years that while Agile teams can and should experience tremendous breakthroughs in performance, it is how this new way of working influences a companies long term sustainability, innovation and bottom line that matter most.
A Pragmatic, Holistic Approach
Our success in enabling Agile and Lean transformation in organizations stems from our consideration for how Agile teams function in a broader context and ecosystem including Sales, Product Marketing, Operations, Compliance and last, but not least, your PMO. These stakeholder communities and customers all have expectations that Agile teams must somehow satisfy or constructively overcome.
Agile teams can and should flourish, but they will do so only when others in the organization know best how to collaborate, feed and consume what Agile teams are capable of producing… that’s where Lean and Agile meet. It is this understanding of the larger context and our end-to-end approach to harmonizing work flows across stakeholders that allow us to optimize cycle-time, value creation and continuous innovation.
