BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

IHS Markit provide financial data infotmation and analytics to various participants like Investment Bank, asset managers, Hedge Funds etc. I lead technology development for securities finance and dividends forecasting products.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Benzne?

We needed to organize agile teams for a usability improvement project that involved rewrite of a web application with major upliftment on user experience.

What were your goals for this project?

Self organized teams on designing , developing and testing various parts of web applications. We knew that this would in many cases require multiple iterations to develop web pages after gathering feedback from multiple stakeholders.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I heard good recommendations from my engineering friends who worked with Benzne team on successful implementation of sekf organized teams.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Benzne took over the task with the agile trainings first to make everyone aware of the chnage they all would be going through. These trainings helped on everyone understanding that agile adaptapation is a mindset change and would help on transparency and quick iterations on development.

After a week of training with brainstorming , high level estimation and carving out an agile implementation that works for most of the stake holders involved, Benzne helped us to start to do biweekly sprints.initially, Benzne took the scrum master role for a few weeks making everyone familiar with agile practices and later transitioned that to the team for managing scrum meetings.

Benzne helped us to create right tools to create transparency in the development process and helped us to reach to a point where team velocity is consistent. They also encouraged us to have right team composition and made us to hire 1 UI/UX designer which turned out to be a great asset for the project's success.

What was the team composition?

7 Developers 3 Tester 1 UI/UX designer 1 Business Analyst/Scrum Master

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

Benzne left a great impact on team having a good camaderie and a consistent development velocity. We would be working with Benzne on other development teams to set up the teams for a great agile journey.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Dashboards for burn down and velocity measurement were great way to have a complete understanding on sprint progress and easily setting up larger projects on multiple sprints.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

People. These guys are go-getters — true professionals who get involved with any part of the process and not leave that incomplete until every sorted to perfection. Their command on various agile practices is amazing, and they can help one build practices from multiple agile frameworks effortlessly.

Are there any areas for improvement?

None, i can think of.

Feedback summary: 

Benzene’s work met all expectations. They delivered a useful workshop that gave their client a succinct understanding of the Agile methodology.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a senior technical program manager at a delivery services app.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Benzne?

We wanted an aligned mindset on how Agile project management would be.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They provided a one-day session on all of the Agile processes we should know.

What is the team composition?

One person provided the training.

How did you come to work with Benzne?

They presented themselves well, based on the requirements we gave. We were looking more for a mindset training and a push on the processes that support that mindset, which they also provided.

What is the status of this engagement?

It was a one-day workshop in December 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement? 

Our team was successfully familiarized with Agile. We gained the desired mindset, as well as the basics ceremonies, based on the principles.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The workshop was very clean and organized. It definitely solved our needs.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I would suggest a more interactive, hands-on workshop; that’s probably not possible since everything is done in one day.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Hi I am Executive Director of a financial services. Additional functional role is of Senior Director Engineering Projects. I head up global product development

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Benzne?

My group embarked on the new product development. For a few years we have been working with multiple Agile consultant. The problem I observed is that all the Agile knowledge assimilated over the years is theoretical and there is a big gap knowing agile and implementing. I was looking for real ground level Agile transformation.

What were your goals for this project?

Complete Agile transformation at the root level

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We went through 3 vendors including local and global vendors. We had exploratory discussions with all these three vendors and understood individual approaches. All the vendors except Benzne were theoretical and did not actually tried to understand the expectations. Benzne understood our processes and tried to map the Agile on the our processes instead of changing the processes.

Describe the project in detail.

After we selected Benzne - we had 1 week assessment of all the following aspects 1. Existing Process 2. Existing Impediments We have reports generated to understand the Agile Maturity level of the organization overall. Then the short term goals were identified.

What was the team composition?

Started with Senior Development/QA managers. Once the initial assessment done different agile roles were identified that included Software Engineers as well.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

The overall Agile transformation over last 12 months has been very successful. The overall process is mapped on the existing organization process

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The Agile Coach and Scrum Masters aligned were very efficient. They got inculcated in our process and mapped agile at every stage. Very effectively worked with 12 scrum teams across the overall organization.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Practical approach with the existing processes.

Are there any areas for improvement?

None
