Agile Construction is a new project delivery methodology that is improving accountability, transparency and accuracy on construction projects. Derived from agile methods commonly leveraged in other industries, Agile Construction provides a framework for project teams to improve team planning engagement using sprint planning, stand up meetings, and scrum boards.
Agile provides a framework that challenges traditional waterfall project delivery methods; waterfall programs typically encompass substantial early planning efforts and long-delivery cycles with core outputs only delivered at the end of the project. Agile Construction, conversely, requires iterative planning, consistent scope refactoring, and regular work scope delivery throughout the execution phase of the project. By reducing the delivery cycle duration and increasing team engagement within the planning process, teams may improve transparency and accountability, reduce health and safety risk, reduce project costs and schedule durations, and improve workface coordination to derive and develop a competitive performance edge.
We work closely with organizations and project teams to develop and deliver bespoke procedures that augment existing workflows. We ensure that the programs we develop fit the needs of your team, while maintaining alignment with agile best practices and construction project delivery standards.
Our consultants provide tailored Agile Construction support to project teams, throughout the project lifecycle. From remote online advisory services to on-site services and resource augmentation, we provide the right level of support to ensure your team is successful in the deployment and sustainment of Agile.
Training and Coaching
We deliver training and coaching services on location or remotely. Teams may select from standard training content delivery modules or may request the development and delivery of bespoke training. Our consultants also offer scheduled Agile Construction coaching services, tailored to the needs of the project team.
PILOT PROJECT SUPPORT
We work with forward-thinking teams to develop and deploy Agile Construction pilot programs on key projects.
Pilot programs enable organizations to explore and test Agile Construction workflows for a specific work scope to better understand the costs, benefits, and impacts of agile to the organization. By focusing on a limited scope, results can be studied in depth to verify return on investment, prior to implementation across the broader organization.
