organizational problems, and is driven to fix them, and along the way influence
the industry to move in a better direction.

a break from the mainstream

software and provide consulting grounded in reality; obsessed with delivering
value, we help organizations become efficient through Agile and Lean practices
and principles, facts not lost on the growing number of customers who see us as
a trusted software partner.
