As manufacturers and suppliers of software-based systems face evolving market trends and disruptive innovations, they may find that keeping pace with these conditions requires a fundamental shift in the way they bring products to market. Through iterative processes and enhanced internal communications, agile product development can help organizations optimize workflows, reduce uncertainly and risk, and meet overall project timelines.  

Many companies adopt agile product delivery in efforts to overcome pain points such as decreasing time to market, understanding customer needs or mitigating the risks of late integration. Along the agile transformation journey, they seek an outlet to reflect on the status quo and brainstorm ideas for improvement. Other companies choose agile to scale their product development. Often, such companies seek the guidance of a knowledgeable, neutral expert on their agile development processes.  

UL Solutions Software Intensive Systems can help. We offer interactive, customer-centered checkups to provide independent, individualized insights to help businesses improve product and process quality and meet business goals.

 

 

ParkCheck for Agile Product Development

ParkCheck for Agile Product Development engages your employees’ active participation while providing an external perspective on your agile processes, artifacts and practices. As an experienced, neutral partner, we offer a unique opportunity to reflect on your team’s status in your agile transformation. We use your reflections and our independent observations to identify gaps and develop a plan for improvement.

Through guided self-reflective workshops and investigative sessions, we work together to consider the following aspects:

 

  • Common understanding of agility – Why should you care about agility as a business practice? What challenges do you want to overcome with agile principles and practices?
  • Technical agility – How do your engineering practices support agile product development and delivery?
  • Team agility – How do your teams embody agile values and principles?
  • Agile product development process – How do agile principles and practices guide your product definition, planning and delivery processes? How do critical systems support your quality system?
  • Collaboration architecture – How do you facilitate collaboration across multiple teams to build a product together?
