Clearly Agile’s Assessment Approach

Clearly Agile uses an assessment framework based on observations and elicitations from across the organization to capture findings and opinions of culture, engineering practices, quality and processes.  Attaining an assessment from an outside source provides the best opportunity to identify risks, issues, and opportunities for improvement across the enterprise. Clearly Agile is your ideal source for conducting assessments as we have no preconceived notions and base our approach from principles and values, engineering practices, and deployment throughput.

We start with a collaborative preparation in which we present our assessment approach in more detail, explaining our alignment to Agile / DevOps Principles.  We walk you through our engineering practices and tools and the processes, artifacts, and enablers we use.  Then, we describe our delivery and deployment throughput, infrastructure, quality and security, and supportive governance framework. 

After you have a better understanding of our assessment approach, Clearly Agile work with you to solicit stakeholder input by identifying and prioritizing desired outcomes, building consensus on the level of support needed, and setting a timeline.  We understand that every organization has unique needs, so we are able to tailor our series and adjust our assessment approach in order to best fits your needs.

During our assessment approach, we will identify teams and individuals within your organization, including leadership, management, stakeholders, delivery teams, and support teams.  Clearly Agile gathers input interactively, utilizing interviews, observation, and surveys, and document analysis to determine the Agile and DevOps approaches and tools to produce and measure the best outcomes for your organization.  This allows us to create a tailored report of our findings including potential gaps, perceived risks and issues, suggestions for improvement and next steps.

No matter where you are at in the Agile / DevOps maturity scale, Clearly Agile is here to help.  We have a defined yet tailorable approach to understand where you are now and where you want to go in order to provide an actionable plan within days.  Contact us today at, so we can help you increase your efficiency and outcomes!
