Agile, Lean, Lightweight….Software development methods are slimming down and delivering better business value in terms of cost, quality, flexibility and speed. At AgileInnovation, we provide the expert knowledge and hands-on experience to accelerate your move to a more agile and lean way of working. We have led agile adoption programs with training, coaching and consultancy in companies like Intel, Prudential, Fleetmatics, Openet, Paddy Power and AXA.
