Distributed Agile

Our Philosophy

Agilitate was formed when a group of developers and testers from eastern Europe, who wanted to build software "the right way", met a project manager who wanted to build an elite software development team to deliver products "the right way".

Whether Agile is "the right way" or not, the concepts of highly skilled cross functional teams in eastern Europe, high quality software product management, pro-active risk management and transparency have been our core principles from day 1. Scrum is the delivery methodology that we have chosen to use to deliver all our projects.We have found over time that it has not only delivered fantastic Return on Investment for our customers, (in two cases saving them millions within a single year), but that it has also led to award winning products and empowered teams with high levels of performance and job satisfaction.

We have mastered a method that not only gives added value to our customers, but also to ourselves. We would be delighted to share it with you.
