Raman Technologies, Inc.

Work Smarter. Deliver Exceptional Value.

Raman Technologies Inc. is an international agile and management consulting company that works with organizations to improve their product delivery model. Our niche is working with clients that do embedded and firmware development. We often step in when companies like McKinsey, Boston Consulting Group, and so call agile transformation shops fail to deliver on client expectations. The reason why we deliver results and they don’t is simple – they don’t have the breath nor depth in all areas required to help the organization truly improve their bottom line, which is getting products to the market sooner and in the hands of early adopters. Raman Technologies is able to deliver value time after time for their clients because we can assess, strategize, explain, present, train from the executive level to the team level, and then help them execute the transformation and sustain afterwards. Our knowledge is cutting edge and well respected because we speak at international conferences, provide thought leadership, publish articles, books and tools, and obtain the highest certification credentials in the industry.

At Raman Technologies Labs, we are also developing a cloud-based, agile project management tool, called Cognosco. This tool is truly collaborative with no hassles. Log in using your social credentials or register an account to create or join a project. You can manage any type of project with our tool - not just software projects. It is intuitive, interactive, offline capable, and easy to use. Your project dashboard will display agile metrics to help monitor the progress, milestones, and interact with other team members that are online, etc. Cognosco will help you facilitate and record your notes from sprint reviews to retrospectives, and provide a repository of real time agile information to make your project a success. We are also working on extending Cognosco to facilitate Kanban and Scrumban practices. Look for updates via Social Media in the coming months!

Agile Transformation

The Enterprise Agile Transformation Journey

Raman Technologies has helped several clients transform their traditional processes to Agile and sustain those processes going forward. Some of our transformation clients have been JP Morgan Chase, PayPal, Cisco, and Costco. We pride ourselves in being pragmatic versus dogmatic in our approach. Therefore our coaches have in-depth background in several Agile frameworks and methodologies like eXtreme Programming (XP), Scrum, Kanban, Scrumban, and SAFe. Raman Technologies has work with clients in very challenging environments like embedded software development, compliance, and distributed teams. We have the experience and we know what it takes to be successful at an Enterprise level.

Our model focuses a lot on quantitative assessments and Agile leadership training in the beginning. Having been through several Transformations, we know the type of questions to ask and what to observe to get a clear understanding of the potential challenges and concerns before embarking on a Transformation Journey. Our leadership training is more than just reviewing the Agile Manifesto Values and Principles but rather getting you and your leadership team in the mindset to what propels teams to be hypo-productive and what support is needed to make this happen.

Agile Transformation Success = Leadership Mindset + Agile and Team Values + Principles + Culture + Practices

Our Strategy does deliver work products to ensure your Organization is getting full value from our services. We not only deliver training at competitive rates, we also work side by side with pilot teams to demonstrate Agile success via constant reflecting and improving the process, and at the end, we deliver a scale-able playbook for your organization to roll out. In this approach, we also identify internal champions that cans serve as Coaches after we are gone to sustain and continue improving.

However, before a large scale transformation can start, it is recommended a well formed coaching team must be assimilated. The coaching team must be comprised of seasoned, diverse group of people that bring breadth and depth of transformation experiences. You do not want a team full of just Scrum coaches, but rather a team full of Agile coaches from all aspects of the paradigm. Once you have a coaching team that understands and knows how to implement Kanban, SAFe, Scrum to Agile Engineering XP practices like Accepted Test Driven Development, Continuous Integration and Deployment, and so on, then you the organization is equipped to get the best advice and recommendations based on the corporate culture and environment. Raman Technologies can deliver this with our global network of highly experienced and skilled coaches. below are the key steps to an Agile Transformation.

STEPS DESCRIPTION
Education Mindset and support needed to transform to being Agile
Assessment Conduct surveys, interviews, and observations to understand pain points and challenges
Recommendation Make Recommendations to Leadership and get buy-in to initiate Pilot Programs and Teams
Monitor Executive, Program, and Team level Agile Metrics
Transformation Retrospective Inspect and Adapt
Improve Enhance and Fine Tune Agile Practices to reach the agreed benchmarks
Playbook Compile playbook to roll out organization wide

Since the transformation setps are dependent and in some cases iterative, a Kanban board will be used to manage the work queue. For more details on how to implement an Enterprise Agile Transformation model that is logical, measurable, incremental, and guarantees success, please contact us!

Management30

In few industries the benefits of new, agile forms of working were more visible than in software development. Strict deadlines, highly intelligent knowledge workers, and products that – if not built correctly, were very vulnerable to errors. The philosophy of Agile offered many answers and solutions to improve working methods in software development. Management, however, was hardly addressed. Management 3.0 helps to address this lack of visionary management.

cognosco

For the next phase of Cognosco, Raman Technologies Labs is developing enhancements to extend Cognosco for Lean Kanban in Practice. When we coach, we are very pragmatic with our approach - we know one size does not fit all like some dogmatic coaches like to believe. Therefore, we know the community needs a tool that can facilitate different Agile methods. With Lean Kanban, you will be able to implement System Thinking Approach To Introducing Kanban (STATIK), facilitate your Kanban teams based on the core practices like visualization, WIPs, flow, policies, feedback, and improved collaboration. You will have automated calculations for Little's Law, cumulative flow, lead time histogram, and flow efficiency.

Raman Technologies can help your organization customize your Agile Project Management Tools to fit your needs and expectations. Whether it be complex program level reporting or rote calculations, we have most likely done it before. By being a development partner with the main stream tools and our advance expertise, we are the best in the market for customization and API integration. Ramantech can also provide custom training for your commercial Agile Project Management tools.

Community

Changing an organization to deliver more value and be innovative, requires a collective, conscious effort of out-of-box, like minded thinkers that value learning, trust, collaboration, adapting to change, and team accountability. These principles go beyond just organization development, it applies to a lifestyle and how you live and perceive your life. Using Meetup.com, we will be creating Agile Communities across the globe.
