Planning service
How the planning service works
Our unique Cloud communications and culture audit service supports the planning of Cloud, agile and SAFe projects by supporting the communications elements of change management, project management and programme management. Our communications and culture audit service can diagnose communications issues within and between teams, and between teams and stakeholder groups. We can also help all stages of Cloud projects that are in support of a project following GDS Service Standard or DDaT Functional Standard principles, e.g. agile and lean, and includes inception, pre-discovery, discovery, alpha, beta and live phases (and their assessments). This important and unique service is of particular benefit where both agile and Cloud are a new to an organisation or a team within the organisation, or where the organisation operates to a strict hierarchy (e.g., many safety-critical organisations). The service can also support the planning of external communications around a Cloud, agile or SAFe implementation and the communications and functions for which Cloud services such as SaaS are intended to be used. The service can also support the planning of human factors considerations.

Setup and migration

Setup or migration service available
How the setup or migration service works
Our unique Cloud communications and culture audit service helps an organisation transition to and maximise the use of Cloud, agile or SAFe by identifying the often unspoken communications and cultural issues that hamper the transition to many Cloud, agile, SAFe and user-centred services. The service employs proven tools and techniques from anthropology, organisational ethnography, and socio-linguistics to deliver a rigorous analysis of an organisation’s communication (both written and oral) and culture styles. This unique service is invaluable in programme, project and change management or where two or more groups (including stakeholder groups) need to work together to deliver and maximise the benefits of Cloud, agile or SAFe. Our service also facilitates the inclusion of human factors analysis into the Cloud, agile or SAFe transition. In addition to internal communications this service can ensure that there is consistency of message and tone in your Cloud, agile or SAFe service content. Typically, the service will provide audits, reports and recommendations related to culture and communications, and work with you to iterate and improve.
