Absolute Agile
 is not another agile methodology. It is our approach for building agile software development capabilities using principles and practices from a broad range of lean and agile disciplines. Our Absolute Agile approach does not mandate proprietary methods or tools. Instead, we select the best lean and agile techniques for your specific situation.

With more than six years of assisting our clients through successful agile transitions, the Absolute Agile toolkit draws from our extensive experience with a wide variety of processes, including Lean Software Development, Scrum, Extreme Programming, Design for Six Sigma, the Agile Unified Process and others.

Knowing the interrelationships of all these practices, and with our first-hand knowledge of the common risks and potential pitfalls, we work with you to design a tailored approach that selects, tunes and scales agile methods to meet the distinct challenges of your unique environment.

Your plan is promptly set into action with our Organizational Scrum seminars, innovative leadership workshops and our highly regarded team training and coaching. All of these services are carefully targeted to quickly gain momentum, measure progress and ensure a solid footing for your ongoing success.

Enterprise-class software development can be very challenging. Outsourcing, distributed teams, multiple product portfolios, complex architectures and large project communities all demand unique adaptations to standard lean and agile practices.

The effectiveness of our Absolute Agile approach is rooted in extensive real world, hands-on experience that spans the full range of enterprise development, from single team adoption of Extreme Programming practices to the coordination of multiple, interdependent Scrum teams across time zones and geographic locations.
The Absolute Agile approach specifically identifies and targets the benefits that are most important to your organization:

• Faster Release Cycles

• Adaptability to Change

• Higher Quality

• Satisfied Customers

• Greater Visibility

• Sustainable Delivery

• Increased Productivity

• Energized Teams

Ensuring the sustainability of your agile capabilities is a key objective of the Absolute Agile approach. There is an inherent danger that an organization can slip back into non-agile practices or otherwise fail to maintain the momentum of an agile transition. Our Organizational Scrum framework is specifically designed to address these risks, enabling you to realize the long-term benefits of a successful lean and agile transition.
As a process improvement strategy, Absolute Agile embraces assessment, planning, skill-building and measurement of results. To effectively promote and govern these critical disciplines, Agile Logic created a framework to help you steer your agile transition. We call this framework
Organizational Scrum

Organizational Scrum is a higher-level activity that implements tracking and steering for your agile transition and process improvement initiative. Running separately from the development team Scrums, your Organizational Scrum is a proven, effective mechanism for ensuring that you maximize the ongoing benefits from your transition to lean and agile methods.

Agile Logic primes your organization for sustaining a culture of continuous improvement. The Absolute Agile approach reduces risk, maximizes your benefits and generates immediate results. Each step of the way, your incremental investment produces measurable improvement in your agile capabilities, and tangible progress towards your successful agile transition.

Periodic reassessment of your lean and agile capabilities provides the standardized feedback needed for your Organizational Scrum and to steer your transition through continuous improvement. Agile Logic will help you build your assessment practices, or you can rely on our comprehensive services for independent third-party assessment. Either way, you increase your ability to avoid risk and to target new opportunities for ongoing innovation and improvement.
