Video case study: Agile implementation sparks up innovation

09 Mar 2016

In the rapidly-changing digital environment of today, companies need to constantly adapt in order to keep up with the pulse and not fall behind.

Spark Ventures approached Assurity Consulting to spin up a new Scrum team in their ‘Digital First’ unit. They wanted to see whether an Agile mindset could help them deliver technology at the speed and velocity required of an industry leader.

Over three months of training and coaching by Assurity, the team developed the Agile mindsets to better deliver their solutions. By challenging requirements and taking ownership of delivery, they were able to innovate beyond expectations and deliver New Zealand’s first telecoms wearable app.

Implementing Agile properly has helped a group of smart and motivated individuals become a truly high-performing team. Here is their story here.
