Better HW/SW integration is often a driver for using Agile Software methods in hardware, but that traps hardware teams into structures and tools that don't suit their work.
Align your hardware, firmware, software, and connected app teams around a common delivery plan while allowing teams to use processes and tools that work for them.
Hardware teams often find that Agile Software Development methods lead to too many unproductive meetings that erode their productivity and can consume more than 25% of their development time.
By resetting teams to use structures that fit physical PD, we can help you regain almost all of that time back for real value-creating work.
Rapid Learning Cycles Founder and CEO Katherine Radeka describes her experiences with what creates a full stop for teams, and how they can get unstuck through an Agile Rescue Mission with an expert consultant.
We've rescued teams that tried Scrum, Scaled Agile, Modified Agile for Hardware and other flavors/mixes of Agile SW practices.
No matter where you've been, this is how we'll bring you back.
LISTEN TO YOUR TEAMS' CONCERNS TO BUILD ENGAGEMENT
We talk to the teams, starting with those that are most frustrated, to affirm their experience and help them find a path forward that acknowledges the journey they have been on.
We give them the opportunity to share their experiences confidentially, and incorporate their feedback into the plans so show that we've heard them.
REBUILD CONFIDENCE BY REINFORCING POSITIVE CHANGES
Groups usually move to Agile because their old system had problems. Agile may even have solved some.
We'll look for opportunities to sustain the positive changes you may have experienced, which help the teams transition out of Agile without losing faith in themselves or in their leadership team.
ELIMINATE KNOWN "WORST PRACTICES" FROM AGILE
We give the teams permission to stop doing the things that often cause problems for physical product teams using Agile software practices.
This provides immediate relief to restore motivation and team empowerment.
RESET THE TEAMS TO GET THEM BACK ON TRACK
We rebuild their plans from the ground up to remove the clutter from the Agile software process.
The reset restores productivity and the team's ability to keep track of the long-term project schedule.
RLCI will reinforce your position as an effective product development leader who is responsive to the needs of your teams.
