Agile work

Agile working in a non-developmental company

Quantum works in an agile manner, especially in areas that are not classified as traditional software or product development.

Scrum, KanBan, ScrumBan – you name it!

Agile working now accompanies a majority of IT companies because it has become a standard tool for software companies around the globe in the last 10 years.

As a counter-design to “classic” methods such as the waterfall process, agile methods do not assume a planned end product, but rather an iterative approach. Here, rather, the final result is approached. In small project steps, called iterations or, as in Scrum, sprints, an attempt is made to reduce complexity by simplifying the planning effort through a shorter time interval. At the end of this interval, they reflect on what was good, not so good, or in need of improvement. In this way, the team is constantly engaged in a so-called build-measure-learn process, which constantly seeks to improve its own actions.

Quantum, as an HR consultancy, now embeds the whole company in an agile approach: in addition to the principles of the Agile Manifesto, which we have adapted somewhat to our specifics, we use the Scrum Events as the Artifacts . These were also slightly modified – in a non-developmental context – to meet the needs.

Define goals, focus, reflect

Quantum lives and thus transports the values it proclaims through its experts. All internal employees thus become true Agile experts.
They live and breathe the Agile mindset.

In addition to the vision of creating an agile, excellent community of IT experts, for whom we are a constant partner and reliable mediator through our value-added solutions and services, we are now going one step further by consistently living agile values ourselves.

Our customers thus benefit from our colleagues who not only know this method from the “textbook” but are professionals in its application. With the difference in our play style of assigning the roles of PO’s and Scrum Master to a different colleague per iteration, our team understands the requirements of these roles. In many ways, this brings advantages in understanding regarding the performance of the roles. 

This allows our agents to screen candidates not only for the right fit in terms of skills, but also for the right fit in terms of the experts’ personalities.
