    Grow from 1 to 30 engineers. Ship 5 new products. Do it in less than 12 months.

    A revolutionary process fueling multiple teams on a rocket ship of success

    Growing a team from 1 engineer to 30 in one year is hard enough. How about shipping 5 new products at the same time? Not a problem. Through a lean implementation of multiple agile frameworks (dubbed The Agile Donut), this team grew to over 100 engineers spread across the globe continuing to ship amazing products. Companies from all over the world came to visit, learn, watch, and study the Agile Donut.

    A product and company re-ignited.

    Reviving a product and company that deteriorated to the point of freezing sales

    It's bad news when a company decides to stop selling their product for a full year. On-boarding new customers became so cumbersome and buggy that the company couldn't bear to add even one more. Then we arrived. Establishing proper engineering processes, architectural approaches/guidelines, and hiring amazing engineers reduced an on-boarding process from 8 months to 1 week. Oh, and we saved the company hundreds of thousands in operating costs while we were at it...

    Global agile in the face of adversity & disbelief.

    Deploying agile in a global organization when everyone said it couldn't be done

    Imagine a multi-billion dollar company with decades of success in the hardware business. Let's pretend that same company decides to go all-in on software, and they want to try this agile thing out.  Unfortunately, the world of waterfall permeates everything they do (including growing into a multi-billion dollar company).  We implemented agile with so much success that it turned into an "agile roadshow" as we travelled across the globe educating the rest of the organization on how they too could thrive with agile.
