GOLD SPONSOR (International Category)
IndigoBlue was established as an Agile consultancy in 2002, specialising in the transformation of IT delivery capability. We help organisations build highly responsive digital teams through the effective application of Agile techniques. To excel, a team needs both ‘Basic’ Agile skills and to learn to operate effectively in the broader context of the organisation.
IndigoBlue consultants are experts in improving flow through delivery. We engage with the wider business stakeholders and product owners to enable end-to-end improvements in delivery capability, ensuring Agile skills are fully embedded and that the organisational objectives are achieved.
Truly effective Agile teams think differently about IT delivery; engage the wider business and other IT functions to ensure high levels of collaboration; focus on delivery of value; and have sophisticated governance approaches and understanding of uncertainty management and incremental planning. IndigoBlue builds such capability for our clients.
