Expertise

Business reinvention is a journey. Therefore, it needs to be carefully planned and managed. This needs a methodology.

That is why Digital Value Creation has developed a unique methodology we call Lean Startup Innovation which is especially well suited to serve the needs of business reinvention for the digital economy. It drives and sustains agility as it strikes a balance between the chaos of no method to the ultra-prescriptive methods that are rapidly being recognized as serious dampers to achievement and success.

A delivery model, born in the digital economy serving the digital economy

We use a federated delivery model that is agile and cost effective. A combination of the methodology and our teaming capability enables us to ensure that every outcome we’re committed to deliver has the right skills and capacity at the right time. This is the foundation of our ability to deliver ambitious projects without overhead. With delivery partners across the US, in Europe and India and an offshore development center we can pull together the right combination of skills at justified cost levels and deploy them at the right time and place to meet any need and timeframe challenge.

Our methodology enables clients to swiftly implement new services and/or processes and to integrate them with legacy and/or new systems.  For instance, a multi-function application can be value released into production to the user community in a more efficient fashion then most other approaches.  This is done by progressively delivering incremental, feature rich functions of a system in waves, comprised of 3-5 sprints each.  With a value release approach, the product is in user hands earlier (even though other functions may not be available yet), has higher quality (standalone components are less complex then larger, multi-function sub-ssytems), and begins delivering on the system goals faster (profitability, cost reduction, etc.) than a monolithic approach will allow.  As releases occur, the production operations organization gets better at supporting the new releases, giving users more confidence in the reliability of the newly introduced components.
