Consulting to help you do what you do, better.
It’s not easy to become a Broadsword consultant. Our professionals have years of hands-on technical, process, and project management experience and all have spent time with software, engineering and management consulting firms honing their unique combination of skills. They have been in the trenches and have lived the challenges you live with every day. While we’re proud of our Scrum, PMP, ISO, or CMMI Institute certifications, where we really add value is our expertise with planning, communications, organizational change, facilitation, coaching, and implementing sustainable change. Add to that Broadsword’s tools and methods, and you have a powerful, positive force at your disposal.
Sometimes you need strategic advice from an experienced leader or you just have questions about what the future holds. Maybe you need help framing the value of process improvement to your management, or need to better understand the value of CMMI, agile, or Organizational Change Management. Our Executive Consultants give you face-to-face access to our most senior professionals to discuss your most important and complex issues.
Our Senior Consultants are leaders in their respective fields and know how to make you successful. They serve as coaches, facilitators, mentors, teachers, and trusted advisors. They will help you drive your program to a successful conclusion, working with you on a scheduled basis to incrementally put you on the path to greatness and help you reduce process debt using Broadsword’s methods and tools.
Our Senior Consultants are all certified and experienced Scrum Masters and Scrum Product Owners who can help accelerate and improve the performance of your agile teams. Whether you are considering adopting Scrum, want to learn more about Planning Poker or retrospectives, or are struggling with agile values, our team can help.
