OUR #1 GOAL IS TO HELP YOU

Reduce Project Costs. Shrink Delivery Times & Have More Fun Building Apps on Dynamics 365.Power Platform.

You should be consistently winning more projects and delivering them fast. If that’s not happening, we can help.

FOR YOUR TEAMS

Let’s Succeed With Scrum Together

Your teams work hard on winning and delivering projects. Yet, they run into challenges. There’s an awful lot of inefficiency. Sometimes with how you estimate new agile projects. And sometimes, it’s with delivering them.

Complex work needn’t necessarily be hard. Our courses and masterclasses are designed so that:

  • Your sales teams can qualify, pitch, and win new customers (fully backed by the confidence of your delivery teams)

  • Your delivery teams can work together in harmony to complete projects on time and on budget

  • Your Teams can Estimate your Dynamics 365 and Power Platform projects like experts

COURSES FOR YOU

The Scrum Superhero

You are a part of a Scrum superhero squad. And you attend the daily scrums. You sit with your team during estimations. But you feel like an outsider. You don’t speak the same language.

Or maybe none of that is true. Maybe you are not doing Scrum yet. You’re working in a traditional software development team. But your team is trying to build working software incrementally in a hybrid fashion.

We have specially designed courses to help you sell and deliver using Scrum. We help you:

  • Estimate Dynamics 365 and Power Platform applications so that your projects get approved (and you never lose an opportunity)

  • Apply the Scrum framework effectively for your Dynamics and Power Platform projects (and get certified too)

What Customers Say

What I’ve seen is there’s more efficiency from the teams because things are more organised. There’s a process in place. There’s a structure that people look and say, ‘Okay, yeah, this is how things are being done and this is better as compared to what we’re doing before’. In terms of saving time, after going through the Scrum course, what I now have is a process to filter through the backlog, put those things into sprints on the backlog itself. So basically, it saving us time in terms of where work items which are related.

Alexio Chandiwana
Solution Designer at D365 Consulting

We’ve got a lot of really good feedback from our very first customer that we applied the framework to, to the point where we got a case study out of it with Capgemini, like it’s on our website and public. For me, the mental health thing has dramatically improved in terms of like what I think we’ve agreed upon versus what they’ve agreed they think that they’ve agreed upon. Being confident, using the framework, being on time and on budget gives us confidence. Every time that we know that we’re going to use the framework, it’ll actually happen. Just having the baseline, which is the Scrum for Business Applications course really helps us all stay aligned and true to that.

Andrew Rogers
Senior Manager, Dynamics 365 at Capgemini

We have increased significantly increased the size of our development team. One of the reasons that we’ve been able to do that is because the business has had confidence in the framework that we’ve got to deliver, and that has seen us been given an increase in budget. The work aspect of my life is different after during the course because I definitely have a better framework in order to run the project that has been led to decrease in stress around overruns and risk management.

Louise Astorgano, Head of Technology at Evolv Super Audits

The main difference that adopting Scrum has made to our business apps projects within Incremental Group is it adds structure to our teams. It allows our guys to work in iterative sprints, and it enables our project managers to keep a track of the work that’s going on. Ultimately, then we’re able to work together as a team towards a goal and deliver the best application, the best solution, to our customers.
