Agile Teams

Beneficial Consulting provides Agile Samurai Coaches for teams, Agile programs, and Enterprise Transformations. Our Samurai focus on providing you with independent advice whether by the hour, the day or longer. Our Samurai help your organisation to transform assisting as Agile teams to adopt your new ways of working. They focus on enhancing productivity, gaining measurable improvements, ensuring that each team displays the appropriate Agile discipline and control level. 

Our program-level coaches are experienced, often Certified Agile Practitioners, who are used to designing, planning and controlling activities in programmes with multiple teams.  We take a framework-agnostic stance, preferring to use the right approach rather than following a prescribed solution.  Our Samurai may assist you with implementing one or more of the Agile frameworks. Our Agile Enterprise coaches are focused on Organisational Agility in both the IT and Non-IT context. 

We seek to use Lean-Agile principles and mindset to enable organisations to compete or achieve competitive advantage in this digital era. We use Lean-Agile to increase customer satisfaction, improve operational efficiency and improve employee satisfaction.  

In addition to the organisational redesign, our Enterprise Coaches can also develop your coaches. This is because we believe that relentless continuous improvement doesn’t only apply to teams; it also applies to the coaching of those teams.

Unleash the potential of your teams and take your projects to the next level with our Agile Samurai! Get powerful, relevant advice and coaching to help you succeed today so  you’ll be confident that your team can do anything!
