About Us

We are a team of Agile coaches, consultants and trainers
who are focused on helping organizations improve.

Our staff includes consultants who have diverse skills in Agile coaching, facilitation, interaction engineering, and teaching. We exist to serve client organizations who are seeking process improvement … and the ability to more rapidly respond to opportunities as an organization.

We hold a set of values, and work from a set of principles that support these values. These values and principles govern and guide everything we do.

Creating Independence over generating billing
Championing Learning over avoiding risk
Building Relationships over building transactions
Inviting Participation over assigning responsibility

We help our clients develop the ability to rapidly learn, develop great products, and respond to change. We coach Agile teams, facilitate productive meetings, and deliver Agile coaching, consulting and training.

We believe that training is necessary and that coaching accelerates a successful transition to an agile organization. We hold a radical belief that less is more with coaching; that long term dependence on coaches works against you becoming truly agile as quickly as possible. We strive to work with our clients in ways that enable them to establish agile practices free of outside consultants sooner ….rather than later.

“FSA was instrumental at facilitating process and culture change required for us to create a high performing organization.” – Andrew M.
