The Monticello Difference:
Our consultants are Certified Scrum Masters with practical experience in the Banking and Healthcare industries. We customize our Agile approach for each client to drive the transition of your organization by enhancing your teams, aligning your projects, and implementing the tools necessary to deliver results.
MCG leverages its team of Agile experts to help our clients understand the feasibility and potential impact of implementing Agile in their organizations. When determining the value-add for implementing Agile, we create short, medium, and long term ROI analysis taking into account all impacted areas including personnel location, infrastructure, and culture. If Agile is right for your organization, we will engineer an implementation plan with a high level release roadmap that aligns with our client’s priorities, minimizes production impact, and maximizes value-add.
Monticello offers tailored Agile training by Certified Scrum Mastersfor senior managers, delivery teams, and product owners. Our senior management training helps our clients to understand the Agile value proposition while our delivery team and product owner training prepares our clients for the day-to-day operations, reporting, and processes. We don't just present the Agile methodology, we advocate why an organization should want to implement it ensuring all parties are on-board. During our training, our clients will have exposure to all aspects of the Agile methodology and delivery teams will have the opportunity to participate in interactive exercises to re-enforce learned content. We will ensure that our trainees end our training feeling they understand the benefits of Agile and can implement it successfully.
One of the key principals in the Agile Manifesto is “individuals and interactions” over “processes and tools”. While Monticello consultants value the spirit of that principal, we believe that there are situations when a robust toolset can increase the effectiveness and efficiency of delivery teams. Every organization is different. While small entrepreneurial companies with a few Scrum teams can leverage sticky notes on a storyboard wall, large organizations require more structure and standardized reporting attained via an end-to-end Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) solution. MCG is prepared to help organizations create toolsets aimed at increasing productivity and efficiency while capturing end-to-end traceability and transparency.
Agile Project Management:
Using the Agile framework, Monticello consultants have experience implementing PMOs for top investment banks and Fortune 500 companies. Equipped with years of industry knowledge and PMP and Scrum Master certifications, our consultants will help to build consensus across the organization while striking the right balance to achieve tangible business value for all stakeholders. We take an "evolution not revolution approach" to achieve rapid, yet sustainable results to maximize impact of our clients' initiatives. We start our projects by establishing global standards for operations and reporting along with corporate governance and compliance to ensure a solid foundation and set-up for success. We design mechanisms to promote interactive engagements, collect feedback from retrospectives, and track performance metrics throughout the entirety of each initiative.
