Making the switch to #Agile can seem daunting, but it does not have to be. Agile has become an incredibly popular way to manage projects, and for a good reason – it can be extremely effective.

Both big banks and neobanks face unique challenges. The banking industry is rife with challenges and the two types of banks are up against it as well as each other.

Is your consulting firm too big to care?

Running a business is never easy. Sometimes the only easy thing is seeing that something isn't working. A business’ operating procedures can become engrained, making it hard to see where improvements can be made. To make it easier to make improvements, many organisations turn to business consulting services to gain an outside perspective.   At first [...]

Why Not to Play it Safe with Agile

2022-09-15T12:51:37+10:00July 18th, 2022|

When Agile first started, it was a grassroots movement. A rebellion against the heavy-handed waterfall/project management processes that were common at the time. It was about getting things done and working more efficiently.  Fast forward to today: Agile has gone mainstream, and with that comes all the baggage and politics of big business. Some [...]

After a tumultuous couple of years, remote working has become the new normal. Despite it being unexpectedly thrust upon us, many companies and employees took this transition in stride.

If you’ve ever dealt with an actual government department, you have first-hand knowledge of what governance bloat looks like.   There are so many rules and procedures that instead of helping to move things along, it paralyses everything. Paperwork lies in in-trays, waiting for the right signature and stamp to move on to the next [...]

Are You Project Selfish?

2022-09-15T12:36:53+10:00May 30th, 2022|

You’ve just got your dream project. It’s a career-maker, and if you do well, you know there are big things ahead for you. Chances are, you can’t wait to get started and prove yourself.

No matter how long you’ve been in business, how professional you are and how outwardly composed you seem, there’s no denying that the word “committee”, particularly a steering committee, strikes fear into even the bravest hearts.

If you’ve ever watched a movie where a character wakes up every morning with no memory of the day (or week) before, you know that it can complicate things.
