Latest information from Radtac
Great news is worth sharing quick, which is why we’re very excited to tell you what we’ve been working on lately: we’re opening a new Radtac location in Finland! The Finland hub is joining our global network, enabling us to further support our Nordics and European customers. Please join us in saying Hei Suomi! [Hi Finland!]
At Radtac, everything we do revolves around our passion to help organisations become more responsive, and we do this through enabling them to adopt, embed and evolve Agile ways of working.
Over the years, we have worked with you, our customers, to support you on your Agile journeys. We’ve been all over the world with you - from Silicon Valley, to New York, Zürich, Berlin, Copenhagen, Helsinki, Amsterdam, Kigali, Dubai, Delhi, Beijing, Singapore - you name it. And while we love travelling, having local hubs close to our customers enables us to support you even better. This is why we’re so excited about the latest Radtac hub in Finland.
Expanding our British roots into the US: Radtac launches office in the US
‘Radtac’ - if there’s an American way to say it, then please imagine it now. Why? Well, you might need it.
Because we’ve always loved our American cousins, we’ve decided there’s no better way of showing that, than by effectively marching in there. Ok, what we actually mean is by expanding across the pond.
You’ve read that right. As of now (well, actually a little while ago, but we’ve been busy debating ‘color’ and ‘colour’, ‘organisation’ and ‘organization’), British roots have extended to the United States of America.
At the moment, you can find us in the tech hotbed that is Silicon Valley, California, with our office located near San Francisco. Come say Hello if you’re around - we’ll treat you to some tea!
Last year, prior to Toni and I joining Radtac, our colleague and Head of Training Alex Gray wrote a blog about “How to Prioritise Using Mince Pies”, which you can view here before reading on. So, inspired by the previous year, we went on to maintain this new-found tradition while also learning more about prioritisation ourselves.
Now don’t get me wrong, the M&S Star Mince pies were good but they were not quite what we had hoped for from Marks & Spencer. Which is why they ended up getting what would turn out to be an only slightly below average score, especially let down by the pastry and price. However, this gave us a benchmark for the rest of the pies to live up to, or hopefully exceed.
Have you ever wondered what a Leading SAFe Training Course would be like? In this blog post that’s exactly what you’ll be able to read.
First of all, what is SAFe®?
The Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe) helps businesses address the significant challenges of developing and delivering enterprise-class software and systems in the shortest sustainable lead time. It is an online, freely revealed knowledge base of proven success patterns for implementing Lean-Agile software and systems at enterprise scale.
You may have already read our recent blogs announcing that Professional Scrum Master and Implementing SAFe 4.0 with SPC certification courses are now available within our training portfolio. Our training portfolio is set to be enhanced further - we have joined the International Consortium for Agile (ICAgile) as a Member Training Organisation (MTO).
ICAgile is a leading global Agile accreditation and certification body that helps organisations design learning experiences that cultivate an Agile mindset and enable sustainable organisational agility. They collaborate with worldwide Agile and industry experts to design world-class learning tracks that guide organisations in the development of their curriculum. ICAgile’s approach is not tied to any specific Agile methodology, thus giving people the flexibility to blend flavors in a way that make sense for their reality.
The ICAgile learning roadmap provides clear paths for professionals and organisations who want to start or continue their Agile journey. The learning roadmap is made up of the following certifications.
Just in case you missed any of them, or would like to refresh your learnings reading them again, here are our top six blog posts of 2016 from the Radtac Blog.
Can you map a certain type of organisational culture against an Agile framework? Is a certain Agile approach better suited to a certain culture? How can various culture types affect the success of your chosen Agile approach?
To keep pace with an ever-changing business environment and with increasing business challenges, organisations are faced with the need to transform. However, the transformation itself isn't enough - it has to be successful, effective, and ensure growth and competitivity. How can this be achieved?
Peter Measey, CEO of Radtac and Agile expert, builds on his 20+ years of experience with Agile, in order to provide you with a deeper understanding of Agile business transformation - what it is, why you need it, and what difference it is going to make. The learnings are captured in a series of white papers on Agile Business Transformation, with the first one looking at the 'why' in Agile Business Transformation.
The below is an extract from the Why 'Agile' Business Transformation white paper.
As 2016 is almost over, we want to take a moment and look back at the Agile Awards 2016, where, with great honour, we have received the ‘Agile Consultancy of the Year (Enterprise)’ award.
The Agile Awards ceremony is a ‘celebration of global Agile talent and achievement’, recognising the merits of individuals, teams, and organisations who have had outstanding results with Agile. We’ve been extremely honoured to receive the award, and would like to thank Barclays for giving us the opportunity to work together on their Agile transformation. Thanks to a great collaboration, we are now both in a place where our achievements together have stood out among a notable competition.
We’d like to congratulate all winners and participants of the 2016 Agile Awards: thank you for all your contribution to the Agile community, and for helping keep up great professional standards!
This year’s awards ceremony marks the third consecutive time Radtac has been awarded in the last three years, directly or in collaboration with our clients, which makes us turn around to you and thank you. Thank you for choosing us and thank you for achieving excellent results together.
Before ending this year and moving towards the new, exciting challenges that we hope 2017 will bring, we’d like to take a look back at an important 2016 milestone for us: our website redesign.
Why is it an important milestone? Well, firstly, because we wanted to make our website more friendly for you. We wanted you to find quicker what you’re looking for, to browse through the content more easily, and to have a pleasant experience when using our website.
Second, as with any Agile approach where you inspect and adapt your work, we wanted to make sure our website reflects our beliefs, our brand and our identity. This is why we have turned to Brand it Guru (BiG), a creative, London-based agency of ‘Gurus’ that we have worked with in the past. The team at BiG have known us for a while now, and were ideally placed to help us communicate our message in the best possible visual way.
