AgileCraft was
built from the top down to support enterprise agile at scale.  Everyone from engineers to executives can use AgileCraft to optimize software delivery.

Play It Big

Use real-time data
to enable and align
strategic planning, analysis, forecasting and execution across portfolios, programs and teams.

Build It Better

With AgileCraft you
can blend collaborative team methods like SCRUM, XP and LEAN and scaled methods like SAFE, DAD & Waterfall.

Get In Sync

AgileCraft allows
you to keep tools like Atlassian, Rally, etc. for teams, build tools like Jenkins, test tools like QC and then leverage us to manage the big picture.

Keep It Open

Agile should be fun.
We provide gamifcation, innovation rooms, story mapping, information radiators, badging and live brainstorming to help you build something great.

Wow The Crowd




 
 
Through agile we make enterprise scalability, visibility and collaboration easy for large organizations.

Most of what's out there for scaled agile is hard to learn, painful to configure and clumsy to use.  We believe scaling agile will be easier to accomplish with a platform specifically built for large scale agile.  Our customers agree and we think that you will too.


Flexible
The AgileCraft platform can combine multiple team methods like Scrum, Lean, XP and hybrids under multiple methods of scale like SAFE, DAD and RUP.  The days of changing your process to conform to tools is over.
Scalable
AgileCraft enables tradeoffs between portfolios, products and themes in terms of value delivery, dollars, cost of delay and risk.  To truly scale up, backlogs must be managed to limit work in process and optimize dependencies.
Smart
Our team level solution is best of class but we do realize that some have already invested in tools.  We say no problem! AgileCraft simply integrates with your tools to provide enterprise program and portfolio management.
Fast
We build our solutions to be adaptive, intelligent and clever.  Our goal is to get you off and running with a small amount of custom fields, custom configuration and custom reporting.  We think you get the idea.

How To Scale
Have you noticed that companies with more than four or five teams or with multiple product lines struggle with Agile? The inability of an organization to scale its processes and technology will almost assuredly lead to disappointing results. To learn more about some of the keys to scaling agile click on the bubbles below.

Game Changing Platform
For organizations to realize the full promise of Agile, we believe that all "four levels of scale" need to embrace agile principles. Enterprise, Portfolio, Program and Team levels need to be aligned. Critical information must flow effortlessly up and down and side to side in real time, providing transparency and eliminating uncertainty. While many organizations successfully leverage agile at the team level, they often struggle to power the entire process with agile flow. To scale agile across your enterprise a platform that can address all levels of scale is required. AgileCraft was built to solve this challenge.




 

AgileCraft Works With What You Have
If you need a mature suite to manage your entire Agile process from soup to nuts, you came to the right place. If you just need portfolio and program management to work with your existing Agile products, then you still came to the right place. AgileCraft is designed to be a hosted application, however, the product can also be deployed in your environment.
We provide a scalable platform that is designed to help you deploy quickly regardless of the tools in your current landscape. We provide flexible APIs so that AgileCraft is able to connect with common systems like HP Quality Center or even API enabled homegrown systems.




 

AGILE PROJECT AND PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT
AgileCraft's Enterprise module provides a light-weight agile process to help organizations align business goals and balance risk in order to select projects that will deliver the most value with the best probability of success. With the new Enterprise Strategy module, strategy teams document their plans from mission, vision and values down through to goals, strategy and tactics. Next enterprise demand vs capacity can be visualized, analyzed and optimized to get a full view of business needs and to prioritize against goals and resource constraints. This top-down planning ensures that tactical project work is well aligned with the strategic business goals and eliminates unnecessary projects and investments.

With agile the need to adapt rapidly to changes in business objectives and resource fluctuations is critical. AgileCraft's strategic planning snapshots help to maximize the efficiency of resource planning and ensure the best use of resources with highest-value return for the business. As the resource mix, risk posture, budget and strategy evolves, everyone from the executive to the developer can stay informed of the current priorities as well as the status of all projects in process.




 

Scaled Agile Framework
The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) is a proven knowledge base for implementing agile practices at enterprise scale. The publicly available framework was created by Dean Leffingwell.

The framework's stated purpose is to 1) enhance the competitiveness, productivity, and delivered software quality of the software industry worldwide, 2) to help provide the business benefits of agile development to all software teams and to 3) increase motivation, empowerment, enjoyment and humanity to software development practitioners everywhere.  If you are new to the framework click the image to the right to visit the Scaled Agile Framework homepage.

Our Story
In 2007, the Agile tools market was just starting to form. A bright team of software developers who love Agile and what it stands for decided to start developing a broad agile-management platform to help harmonize Agile development.
