The Maximus Agile Approach

Demonstrated experience in Scrum, XP, Kanban, SAFe, and DevSecOps

Our teams leverage a broad range of software development, IT operations, and program governance experience to determine how best to serve our agency partners. Our teams utilize a holistic, often hybrid Agile approach that combines best practices from across various Agile disciplines to deliver value, achieve outcomes, and maintain a strong focus on quality and security. 

 

A mix of approaches is key to success. Our experts can help you find the right balance.

Many agencies are already using Lean-Agile, SAFe, and DevSecOps mindsets, principles and practices, but are still looking for pragmatic ways to leverage these methodologies to their fullest potential.

STORMing for Transformation Success

We don’t just preach the STORM framework. We leverage it in our own practices – and customize it to your organizational structures.

 

The journey to Agile is not one-size-fits-all.

We understand that the journey to Agile is not only about transforming how we work, but how we manage that work and the teams performing it.  Our transformation approach utilizes a combination of Organizational Change Management (OCM) best practices, the SAFe - recommended transformation roadmap, and our lengthy experience in performing transformation services.

The journey to Agile is not one-size-fits-all.

Agile is a journey, not a destination – and no two organizations have the same goals.

For agencies just starting their journey, our greenfield assessments help identify which Agile values and principles make sense to adopt, and identify potential challenges.  For those currently practicing Agile, Scrum, Kanban, SAFe, DevSecOps, our brownfield assessments help define future goals.
