Agile Project Management
Deliver What Matters
Building and running an agile business is the goal for every business owner, stakeholder, and investor. This mindset allows them to operate and adjust their operations and investments in a world that changes rapidly, while continually delivering value to their end customers. We apply agile methodology to non-software enterprise projects and to traditional enterprise software projects.
Applications For Your Business
The methodology described can be used in many aspects of your business including:
- Execution & delivery of technical & financial studies and reports
- Team, vendor & stakeholder management to ensure delivery of timely, under budget solutions and deliverables
- Implementation of Agile methodologies to deliver what matters and reduce project risks
- Execution and management of third-party due diligence to reduce project or deal risks
- Post-Merger Integration, turnaround and restructuring

Benefits of Agile
The Agile Methodology and its effectiveness for project execution, and delivery is built upon a set of values and, principles, which was popularized by the software industry in the early 2000s. This methodology allows teams to prevail and, overcome challenges to achieve project/deal goals. The Agile Method focuses on:
- Individuals and interactions over processes and, tools
- Working software over comprehensive documentation
- Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
- Responding to change over following a plan
Today, this approach has been adapted and adopted by non-tech teams in many organizations worldwide.
How We Apply This Approach In Practice
At Red Sky Intelligence, we apply the Agile approach in practice by using the Scrum framework, as outlined in the following steps below. These steps are followed in a loop until all deliverables/tasks are satisfactorily complete.
A team’s success with Scrum depends on five values: commitment, courage, focus, openness, and respect. — Scrum Guide
- Backlog - A complete list of tasks for the entire project is created
- Sprint planning - A team meeting to define the work to be executed in a defined period, usually 2 weeks depending on the scope of work
- Sprint - A Kanban board displays tasks (pulled from the backlog) that the team commits to during the defined period
- Daily Scrum - The team works on tasks assigned and displayed on the Kanban board. A 10-minute daily standup meeting is held with all team members to discuss progress and roadblocks
- Sprint Review - At the end of the current sprint, a review is held with the team, and stakeholders to confirm completed or in-completed tasks
- Sprint Retrospective - A retrospective meeting is held after the sprint to discuss what went well, what went wrong, and what could be improved, for upcoming sprints
