DELIVERING AN AGILE TRANSFORMATION IN PRIVATE EQUITY

LeadingMile Consulting has recently completed a long-term project with one of its key clients. The main goals of the long-term effort consisted of implementing an Agile structure whereby the client was able to turn around change in a continuous fashion. As such we managed to deliver tangible and measurable results consisting of bi-weekly releases.  

The permanent change to the business means that not only large-scale projects (including an upgrade) were delivered, but progress can also be seen in the smaller releases, tweaking data flows and existing systems.
