Twenty-first century industries face accelerating complexity and change. To adapt to dynamic business and technical demands, companies need product, design, and IT teams that continuously learn from customers and each other. Jeff Sussna has a unique ability to help clients integrate Agile, DevOps and Design Thinking into design-build-operate feedback loops. He teaches organizations how to continuously improve efficiency and customer experience by building user-centered experimentation into the entire service delivery life cycle.


 

Jeff offers coaching, workshops, and speaking engagements that guide teams from where they are to where they want to be.

 

Be Agile

Does it feel like you're doing Agile, but not being agile? Go beyond just doing things faster and optimize your Agile processes  for discovery, adaptation, and truly continuous value delivery.

Be Lean

Agility, lean, resilience, and collaboration aren’t just for start-ups or cloud-native innovation silos. Implement DevOps practices across all areas and modes of your enterprise IT organization and beyond. 

Be Creative

Digital operations teams need to continuously make their work more useful and effective. Integrate Design Thinking into daily operations and make continuous improvement the heart of operational management. 

Be of Service

Responsive customer service depends upon responsive mutual service between teams. Transform silos into user-centered, resilient services that continuously learn from each other.
