Disciplined agile in the city

Session type:
Case Study

Session duration:
45 minutes

Presented by:

Giles Lindsay

Tungsten Network PLC

About this Case Study

The session revolves not only around an introduction to the Disciplined Agile Framework but also around the agile transformation of a fintech company in the heart of the city, using Disciplined Agile and the achievements of that business over the last 12 months.

On arriving at Tungsten Network in July 2016, I discovered that during the first 6 months of 2016, the company had delivered 3 programmes of work (of varying size) using a waterfall or JFDI approach to development, with no understanding of capacity, time or cost.

Having spent the next 3 months with all the teams globally, introducing the Disciplined Agile Framework, the development governance, the portfolio management and project management office and the right tools to support it all, Tungsten Network has now smashed the KPI set in September 2016.

It has delivered over 100 programmes of work in under 12 months, being able to understand the cost of each, the cost of delay and the return of investment. This has ultimately enabled us to start a digital transformation programme within Tungsten Network far faster, at an earlier start date than envisaged and with the right processes to make sure we deliver in 2018 on target.
