In 2015, Assurity celebrated its 10th Anniversary. Over those years, we evolved the business from a disruptive start-up which created the outsourced software testing market to a consulting and delivery practice with more than 220 people working across the whole software delivery pipeline. Our client list, the scope of our engagements and our own capabilities have grown dramatically in that time. But what about the future?

Late last year, we got together as a team to think about just that. We looked at the rapidly transforming business landscape where every organisation is having to change its thinking, business model, organisation, methods, practices and delivery capabilities. More

In a time long before the advent of computers and digital information – and indeed throughout the rise and settle of two industrial revolutions – manufacturing continued as mankind's favourite brainchild. So many brilliant minds worked at it, for so long, that by the time software development came along, the processes and guiding principles behind them were delivering such tremendous value that no-one thought to question their relevance. Like a cookie cutter, Software Development fell in line as yet another manufacturing minion.
Except it wasn’t. Software Development was intrinsically different. Requirements were fluid to the point that they were obsolete before the features could be delivered. Business wanted more and the industry promised to deliver. More

The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) seems to be one of the hot topics in the Agile community these days. Love it or hate it, everyone is talking about it.
There is a huge range of opinions in the community ranging from Ron Jeffries’ ‘SAFe: Good But Not Good Enough’ and Ken Schwaber’s ‘unSAFe at any speed’ to Lyssa Adkins’ ‘The Agile Coaches’ Coach Shares Her Views On SAFe’ and Al Shalloway’s ‘Why Net Objectives Supports The Scaled Agile Framework’.
