How we helped


The client wanted to carry out a review of its solution delivery processes, make recommendations and drive improvements.


We conducted a comprehensive evaluation of their current processes, held several stakeholder interviews and carried out documentation reviews, engineering team surveys, and tool appraisals.


Our process assessment and improvement services enabled the organisation to achieve its solution delivery objectives. We identified their strengths and weaknesses and recommended changes to optimize their efficiency, including streamlining their workflows and implementing best practices.

The Approach and conclusion

We adopted a coaching approach to ease the challenges of implementing new work processes and adapting to new procedures. We provided guidance and support in understanding the new processes and making the necessary adjustments. We also monitored and documented the engineering team's progress. At the end of the contract, the team members had internalized the new processes, absorbed the improved work culture, and become more efficient and effective.
