Lean-Agile Management Business Line
We don't sell Big-A Frameworks that make clients dependent on Big-A Consultancies. We build self-directing portfolios of self-managing streams of self-organizing teams of the client's existing staff. XSCALE is about de-scaling the complexity of large organizations and large projects to the simplicity of Agilism. The result is a high efficacy organization with increasing throughput capable of achieving exponential growth.

High Collaboration Frameworks
Value-added work is, well, highly valuable so it is better to do it in a way that brings deep understanding, rich detail, and high quality. High collaboration frameworks do that for you and more because they motivate people to get involved and have fun while getting things done, sometimes in less time than the usual way of doing the same work.
Kanban for Knowledge Work
The Kanban method is a disciplined way to improve the organization continuously where the starting point is its current state. It has important economic advantages.
Kanban doesn't replace your current practice, allowing your organization to still leverage years of investment instead tossing it out to do something radical increases risk and roles are also kept. This soft start makes it easier for stakeholders to agree on pursuing evolutionary change. Through a small set of practices and principles, the Kanban method increases awareness and understanding of the value flow by making it visually evident, such that opportunities for improvement are identified more easily than with other practices. Flow improvement accelerates by limiting the amount of work done at one same time, increasing collaboration, encouraging acts of leadership at all levels of the organization, enhancing communication through explicit policies, and by establishing feedback loops
Scrum is the most popular of the agile methodologies. Its success is due in part to its simple framework that is easy to put into practice, allowing a jump on improvement in relatively short time. Its simplicity may result is malpractice because novice practitioners fail to realize that is hard to practice it properly.
