Raman Technologies, Inc.

Work Smarter. Deliver Exceptional Value.

Raman Technologies Inc. is an international agile and management consulting company that works with organizations to improve their product and service delivery model. Our niche is working with global, large organization, government, and accredited startups. We often step in when other companies fail to deliver on client expectations. The reason why we deliver results and they don’t is simple – they don’t have the breath nor depth in all areas required to help the organization truly improve their bottom line, which is getting solutions, products, and capabilities to the market sooner and in the hands of early adopters. Raman Technologies is able to deliver value time after time for their clients because we can assess, strategize, explain, present, train from the executive level to the team level, and then help them execute the transformation and sustain afterwards. Our knowledge is cutting edge and well respected because we speak at international conferences, provide thought leadership, publish articles, books and tools, and obtain the highest certification credentials in the industry.

At Raman Technologies Labs, we are also developing a cloud-based, agile project management tool, called Cognosco. This tool is truly collaborative with no hassles. Log in using your social credentials or register an account to create or join a project. You can manage any type of project with our tool - not just software projects. It is intuitive, interactive, offline capable, and easy to use. Your project dashboard will display agile metrics to help monitor the progress, milestones, and interact with other team members that are online, etc. Cognosco will help you facilitate and record your notes from sprint reviews to retrospectives, and provide a repository of real time agile information to make your project a success. We are also working on extending Cognosco to facilitate Kanban and Scrumban practices. Look for updates via Social Media in the coming months!

Enterprise Agile & Lean Assessment

We apply the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) to help organizations transform to being more lean and agile for their enterprise solutions and capabilities. When applying the Scaled Agile method, we look for value streams to understand, organize, and deliver value. At the SAFe enterprise and portfolio level, value streams are a series of steps to provide continuous flow to the “Customer” - that are funded and nurtured as a set of solutions development activities. These activities either deliver end user value directly or support other operational value streams.


Scaled Agile

Value Stream Economics is critical when restructuring organizations to being more lean and agile. Don Reinertsen states 5 elements for an economic framework and the necessity for understanding the relationship between them.

These 5 elements are:

Development Cost The cost to implement a decision or capability
Cycle Time The time to implement the decision
Cost Manufacturing, deployment and operational costs
Value The value of the decision to the business and customer
Risk The increase or decrease in the uncertainty and/or technical viability of the solution

In order to optimize the whole, you have to understand all the steps and associated costs in the flow from concept to cash. Understanding the actual flow of value at the enterprise is challenging and can only be addressed in its specific business context. Therefore, portfolios are re-structured to support one to many value streams as fit for purpose.

Fortunately, Raman Technologies has propriety tools to initiate your Agile|Lean transformation, and assess your Enterprise and value flow based on the 5 elements from the economic framework.

We also take a detail look at Cost of Delay as shown below:


Scaled Agile

We often deliver the following artifacts as part of our Agile|Lean transformation assessment:

  • Lean|Agile Transformation Vision & Business Case.
  • Questions based on business context to understand flow of value.
  • Evaluation of organization’s empirical data for current flow of value.
  • Propose lean value streams.
  • Value streams characterization (e.g. Operations, Development, etc.)
  • Financial forecasting and modeling - projected cost savings.
  • Propose Strategy to launch Agile Release Trains (ARTs).
  • Agile maturity assessment if appropriate.

Management 3.0

Management3.0

In few industries the benefits of new, agile forms of working were more visible than in software development. Strict deadlines, highly intelligent knowledge workers, and products that – if not built correctly, were very vulnerable to errors. The philosophy of Agile offered many answers and solutions to improve working methods in software development. Management, however, was hardly addressed. Management 3.0 helps to address this lack of visionary management.

Tools and Information

Raman Technologies Labs has developed an Agile Project Management tool called Cognosco (www.cognosco.us). This tool is hosted in the MS Azure Cloud and supports offline capability (Android mobile/tablet, and iOS mobile/tablet). On that note, we must say that our mobile/tablet apps are the most robust on the market. Via social logins and sticking to the Scrum basics and nothing else, this tool is the ideal companion to track your Scrum projects and team’s progress. It is intuitive with built in Scrum metrics – no complicated configurations or setup needed. It is also the most cost effective tool on the Market - $50 per project with up to 15 users per project for the Enterprise Cloud offering or FREE for the stand alone mobile/tablet app. Go ahead and check it out.

cognosco

For the next phase of Cognosco, Raman Technologies Labs is developing enhancements to extend Cognosco for Lean Kanban in Practice. When we coach, we are very pragmatic with our approach - we know one size does not fit all like some dogmatic coaches like to believe. Therefore, we know the community needs a tool that can facilitate different Agile methods. With Lean Kanban, you will be able to implement System Thinking Approach To Introducing Kanban (STATIK), facilitate your Kanban teams based on the core practices like visualization, WIPs, flow, policies, feedback, and improved collaboration. You will have automated calculations for Little's Law, cumulative flow, lead time histogram, and flow efficiency.

Raman Technologies can help your organization customize your Agile Project Management Tools to fit your needs and expectations. Whether it be complex program level reporting or rote calculations, we have most likely done it before. By being a development partner with the main stream tools and our advance expertise, we are the best in the market for customization and API integration. Ramantech can also provide custom training for your commercial Agile Project Management tools.

Community

Changing an organization to deliver more value and be innovative, requires a collective, conscious effort of out-of-box, like minded thinkers that value learning, trust, collaboration, adapting to change, and team accountability. These principles go beyond just organization development, it applies to a lifestyle and how you live and perceive your life. Using Meetup.com, we will be creating Agile Communities across the globe. If you are interested in working with Raman Technologies to start a community, please contact us. With Meetup.com, users can log in and add our communities via Facebook. Stay connected with our community at large and join our Global Facebook page. We will post updates to where we will be, photos from our conferences and meetups, and dates to upcoming training classes and webinars.Raman Technologies will also be hosting a Lean Kanban and Agile Asia conference series in the APAC Region.
