|How To Scale|

The inability of an organization to scale its processes and technology will almost assuredly lead to disappointing results.

|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.
If you work with the Scaled Agile Framework, then we can help. AgileCraft is specifically designed to help you succeed with SAFe. Some of the SAFe specific capabilities include:
|What if We DON'T USE SAFE?|
|No Problem! Our platform is designed to support hybrids of not only SAFe but also Large Scale Scrum (LSS), Enterprise Scrum, DAD, RUP, Waterfall and custom hybrids. We provide the broadest list of capabilities that you can mix and match at all levels of scale to match your process within each of your divisions and teams. If you are embracing Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD) drop us a line. AgileCraft is currently conducting market research to further explore this framework within large organizations.|
|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. Over the years, the team leveraged this solution at several public and privately held companies, and as the user base and product lines grew in number and complexity, the product matured and scaled to meet their diverse needs.|
|Fast forward to today and it's clear that many companies need better processes and platforms to scale their enterprises. AgileCraft is uniquely designed to do just that and our people are extremely passionate about making our customers successful. We are doing what we love and our mission is scaling agile to the enterprise. Finding solutions through agility is what we do.|
