What is “Define Agile” ?
Define Agile is an agile agency that provides “just in time” Agile solutions.
How Define Agile differs from millions of others ?
While most Agile solutions focus on providing industry certifications and giving theoretical knowledge, Define Agile is focused on practical applications of Agile in 2018.
You won’t find any other solutions that provide in-depth learning of such tools as Jira and Confluence as part of an Agile on-boarding. We believe theory is important — but it’s just as important to leave our customers with a set of tools and principles based on their business needs in 2018. We work in Agile environment ourselves, not just conducting trainings, so we know what is important for teams, what is in-demand right now.
Who are your coaches ?
Our coaches are technical. For over 20 years we have worked as Web Developers, Engineering Managers, Freelancers, Scrum Masters and Agile Coaches. We understand this industry in and out,
and we know exactly what your organization needs to succeed in Agile transformation. We have implemented Agile transformations with the Canadian Government on Toronto Pan American
Games, in successful IT companies like Chimp.net and Hootsuite, in Fortune 500 companies like TELUS.
We transformed more than 20 teams from infancy to being fully fluent in Agile. We provide our customers with custom tailored packages based on their current needs.
What is your mission ?
Our mission is simple but profound – move 1 million teams around the world through an Agile transformation.
We want your company to be a part of this goal!
Our mission is to transform 1,000,000 teams (you read it right ONE MILLION)
What Do People Say ?
I have a huge amount of respect for Anatoly, and his approach to working with agile teams. I had the pleasure of coaching alongside him, as we supported a number of teams through large organisational change. He is an incredibly focussed, observant, intelligent coach - who would continually & positively challenge the way I see the world. Really enjoyed our time working together, and look forward to collaborating again one day.
Anatoly and I worked together on a team that wrote APIs to connect our website with legacy services deep in TELUS. Anatoly joined us in a time of crisis: we had no Scrum Master, no Product Owner, and only a team of developers and QA. We had just doubled our developer count and we had a hard time keeping track of what work was happening as well as what the most important work was.
Thanks to Anatoly's hard work and diligence to keep us inline, we went from a disaster to a properly functioning team. Suddenly we had stories with actual Acceptance Criteria, all work was being done through Jira issues, we split the team in two to keep our standups focused, and we started to get trust from other teams. This is basics for a lot of teams but without someone who had the experience, I don't think we would have got here in a timely fashion.
Not only did Anatoly get us working together, he was an advocate for our needs. He was able to get our team a Product Owner as well as more developers. He worked behind the scenes to keep the chaos at bay for our team and he made sure we had the necessary information. Anatoly is the driving force behind a number of promotions that have occurred in the past year, my own included. Without his support, I don't believe I would have taken the risk to try something new and really push outside my boundaries. He regularly had one-on-ones with all team members to get a health check and to provide anonymous feedback from our peers, if necessary.
Keep in mind, this is just my experience with Anatoly on one team. While at TELUS, he simultaneously supported two other teams who were in a similar or worse state. Working with Anatoly has been one of the best experiences in my career and I am sad to see him leave our team.
