Welcome to the Gilb Academy
fads, watered-down popularisation, and oversimplification used by many to make techniques easy to sell to any fool.
We all know that waterfall project styles don’t work. But what almost no one understands about Agile methodologies, is how Agile, simply by not focusing on what success is for their customers, is failing in creating success as seen by these customers. We have found that to succeed in projects; you have to capture the real needs of the customers, the improvements they desire. This improvement is not a function, not a technical solution nor a user story. It is improvements in their lives, improvements in their work. We have found that to succeed in your projects, you must get this right, you must prioritize stakeholder value first.
For our clients, OK is not good enough. Their projects can be complex, and their environments competitive.
We are here to ensure that they (you?) excel in project management and product development, with ecstatic customers and a relaxed team.
We are obsessed with delivering the absolute most effective and helpful techniques known.
