Clearly Agile Granted Provisional Patent

August 16, 2017 – Clearly Agile, Inc. is pleased to announce we have been granted a provisional patent for a computer-implemented system and method for applying a class of library rules to a collection of data. Specifically, it uses a multi-level organization of rules to enable evaluation, management, modification, analysis and recommendations of software development and delivery processes and behaviors in order to identify waste and increase efficiency.  

Businesses frequently require numerous projects to function profitably, which often creates a need for many employees, contractors, facilities, software, tools, support, information processing capabilities, and communication systems.  This creates a high level of complexity within an organization, and as a result, often times businesses are not functioning as efficiently as they could be.  To counteract this issue, companies may hire more employees to monitor efficiency or contract with outside consultants.  However, these solutions are costly and become a hindrance for profit. 

Currently, there are software applications that provide evaluation and analysis of the actual computer language, while comparing the computer language to a set of rules. But that is where they stop. Clearly Agile’s computer-implemented system and method goes beyond this by applying a set of rules to an entire workplace, which is where there is usually a significant amount of waste, risk, and opportunities for improvement. 

Clearly Agile is proud to hold a provisional patent for this innovative technology, which we use to help a variety of companies and government organizations to increase organizational function faster and at a significantly lower cost. 


Clearly Agile’s unique web-based solutions improve organizational function much faster and at a much lower cost than if coaches were employed. Our services are for organizations of all sizes and maturity levels, regardless of whether you are just starting to integrate Agile or Lean or have experience with it.

These solutions are centered around the single theme to provide quantifiable data and qualitative opinions to enable organizational leadership to attain actionable insights for immediate impact.

The integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI), using Microsoft Cognitive Services, and our patent-pending Waste, Opportunity, and Risk Engine (WORE) technology allows these solutions to get smarter over time.

Our finite focus on providing disruptive tools to organizations differentiates us from other Agile-Lean tools on the market. For more information, please visit us at, and follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.
