Agile Transformation and Software Craftsmanship


Being an ‘agile’ business doesn’t mean using certain tools or off-the-shelf programs. Agile is an organizational behavior learned, executed and refined over time.

Yet adopting a truly agile culture can be tough. Transformation efforts often expose inefficiencies between application and operations teams, misalignment among delivery organizations and a lack of executive buy-in. 

WWT Application Services can help. We offer a range of agile transformation and software craftsmanship services to simplify and accelerate the journey. We partner with your leaders and teams to design and execute an agile plan that facilitates transformation for both your organizational systems and teams.


Organizational system transformation focuses on:

  • Objectively assessing and addressing your current state of agile maturity and adoption
  • Accelerating the realization of business goals through streamlined software delivery
  • Improving dev team quality and velocity with applied learning from coaches and technical mentors
  • Enhancing delivery efficiency by upskilling developers on leading-edge software development practices
