Wondering who we are

RiverGlide people are some of the most experienced you can find. Our people have been in agile transformation for as long as Agile itself, helping organisations of all sizes innovate in how they work.

Want to know how we work

We help you make a big impact with small changes. We understand that there's no "one size fits all" solution and work within your context to identify small experiments with big systemic positive effect.

Thinking how you'll benefit

We want to understand you, your goals and aspirations. We'll help you discover the benefits that will be unique to you. Sometimes all that's needed is a conversation, so why not get in touch...

Steady guidance and coaching from RiverGlide made all the difference in taking us from releasing once a quarter followed by frantic bug-fixing, to our present fortnightly high-quality deployments. Douglas Squirrel Former CTO — TIM Group

3 perspectives for Holistic Agility

True agility is your ability to change direction quickly, with ease; to discover and deliver what your organisation and customers need, faster. We won’t sell "Agile in a Box" with a rigid set of practices & models that hinder process agility. Our approach is holistically tailored to you, to help you achieve more, faster, easier with people, product and process agility.

People Agility

Are your people in fixed, functional roles or can they adapt to take on the role most valuable to their team at that time?

We coach your team-members and leadership to encourage people to exceed the boundaries of a fixed, functional job-role. This allows each team to move forward together, so your people achieve more, faster, easier.

Product Agility

Does it take weeks to add new capabilities to your product or can you have an idea in the morning and see it in production in the afternoon?

We get hands on with your code and continuous delivery pipeline. We improve the internal quality of your product, mentoring your team as we go. New capabilities are added faster, easier.

Process Agility

Do your teams have mandated process, needing approval to change it, or can they choose what works one moment to the next?

We help you evolve an adaptive process that meets your needs. We take your context into account, in a way that off-the-shelf Scrum and SAFe cannot. Process should work for you, not vice versa.

RiverGlide helped us discover how we were delivering and started us on the journey to where we wanted to go. They helped us realise how we could realistically lighten our process load. Barry Moses Senior Projects Manager — Sky Player

...On Effective Change

When introducing change, we should always expect reduced predictability and reduced productivity. It's just how people and teams work. The bigger the change the bigger the impact.

There is a better way to bring about change with far less compromise: by adjusting course, one small change at a time...
