A tailored approach to agile

The common thread that’s driven success for our clients—across all industries and projects—is an approach that’s tailored to the particular needs of their teams and their business. It’s the same for Agile: it comes in many different flavors, and can incorporate practices ranging from lean to kanban to scrum. Our project leads are versed in all methods and can recommend the right approach. Whether it’s a time-boxed project with strict adherence to estimates that lends itself to scrum, or a project that requires continuous delivery that’s better for kanban. We’re familiar with what works best for you.

We originally selected Headspring based on their knowledge on mobile apps and were extremely pleased to learn that they could bring a lot more to the table, including agile development experience, project management, and design. Their flexible and pro-customer style proved to be invaluable in helping us deal with changing market demands.
