Agile Consulting and Project Management

Whether your team uses traditional project management, is a fully Agile team - or anywhere in between - we can help. For traditional projects, we can help to identify where Agile practices may enhance your team’s performance, while still providing the comfort to the business of traditional project management artefacts.

Agile Coaching

For teams who are transitioning to Agile, we can help to evaluate the stage of that transition and coach the team through becoming fully Agile using the methodologies, tools and techniques that best suit that team.

Training Services

We can provide bespoke training in technical practices (such as TDD), Agile processes, and Communication skills for your team to enhance performance, based on our 'deliberate practice' approach used in our popular dojos, the London Code Dojo and the London Comms Dojo.

Passionate about Performance

At Agile Environment, we bring tailored Agile approaches to product and services delivery for our clients, helping improve delivery to their customers, enhance their teams' working environments and creating lasting value. We provide Agile project management, Agile coaching, consulting and training services to help teams perform better in a dynamic and changing environment, allowing them to give their clients better value and higher performance.

@yogacat13@anthonycgreen @cgosimon, I wish people would focus on ideas rather than the labels people put on them.

@sleepyfoxRT @KevlinHenney A common fallacy is to assume authors of incomprehensible code will somehow be able to express themselves lucidly and clearly in comments.
