AGILE DELIVERY, COACHING & TRAINING
Vana is dedicated to providing best in class agile delivery to support our initiatives and our clients. As such, we have a dedicated Agile Practice Office to ensure we are consistently improving and never stay satisfied with the status quo. We employ a consistent feedback model in whatever we do. This allows us to stay ahead of the curve to ensure we are delivering the maximum value within the time and budget given.
Vana is your agile partner – not just a vendor. We will meet you wherever you are on your agile journey and help take you to the next level. We take a highly pragmatic approach through our workshops, coaching, and mentoring so that each of your teams can be as high-performing as possible.
AGILE BEST PRACTICES
Our teams employ Project Charters, story mapping, frequent backlog refinement, clear acceptance criteria, sprint planning based on team velocity, continuous delivery, daily standups, sprint reviews and retrospectives while our customized tool sets optimize efficiency and efficacy at each juncture.
AGILE COACHING AND TRAINING
Our EpicAgile Scrum workshops focus on what it takes to actually employ Scrum from a day-to-day tactical perspective. You likely have a conceptual understanding of Scrum. We give you the day-to-day activities and tools to actually use it at a tactical level in your day-to-day. So you can be about it not just talk about it.
HIGH PERFORMING TEAMS
Certified Scrum Masters, Certified Product Owners, and high performing project teams understand stakeholder needs and provide technical expertise to deliver the solution. We eliminate wasteful activities and continuously refactor our processes so that everything we do continues to add value.
You have direct access to the status of all work at all times. Daily standups and Kanban boards provide insight into work-in-progress and any impediments. Every 2 weeks, new features are demonstrated and reviewed with stakeholders. Burnup and Burn Down charts and other KPIs keep you apprised of the overall health of your initiative.
We take highly complex needs and lead sessions to untangle them. Teams obtain a shared understanding of each requirement, the value it provides, and to whom. We are in constant collaboration with Product Owners to refine requirements, prioritize, and plan ahead.
DISCOVERY FEEDS DELIVERY FEEDS DISCOVERY...
Teams collaborate with stakeholders throughout the initiative to discover needs and deliver in small increments. Delivery is then reviewed to further discovery. Discovery then feeds the next iteration of delivery.
