When adopting Scrum, having goals that don’t match your business outcomes will lead to mixed signals and a lack of focus or, even worse,…
WE MANAGE YOUR SCRUM TEAMS TO HELP YOU ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS.
No matter how long you’ve been practicing Scrum, getting the right team in place, retaining talent, and achieving the envisioned product are just a few common challenges you might be facing. When you engage Evergreen’s Scrum as a Service offering, we don’t just consult on a solution, we deliver that solution and provide end-to-end management. We hire and manage the team, take the overhead work completely off your plate, and ensure your business goals are met.
ANSWERING YOUR NEEDS
WHEN TO CONSIDER SCRUM AS A SERVICE.
Whether you are still waiting to see the benefits that come with practicing Scrum or you just need some extra support bringing this methodology to your organization, here are a few key indicators that Scrum as a Service can make a meaningful impact for your business.
EXPERIENCING HIGH ATTRITION
Not only can Scrum as a Service curb the effects of attrition—such as tribal knowledge loss, capacity loss, and team disruption—but it can expose the root causes of attrition, including team morale and employee satisfaction.
RAPIDLY EXPANDING YOUR BUSINESS
Whether your organization is growing at an accelerated rate or just landed a massive project that requires support, Scrum as a Service can quickly inject high-quality talent while taking the management burden off your shoulders.
CONSISTENTLY MISSED COMMITMENTS
You’ve placed your dev team in charge of projects in the past, but delivery is delayed, there’s a lack of predictability, features are missing, and output is reduced. If this sounds familiar, Scrum as a Service can provide a clearer path to your next project’s finish line.
NEED FOR CROSS-FUNCTIONALITY
Without cross-functionality, your teams are missing out on the opportunity to learn from each other and work toward a common goal, and thrashing is a more common occurrence. With Scrum as a Service, cross-functionality becomes a top priority.
WHY CONSIDER SCRUM AS A SERVICE.
ALIGNMENT WITH STAKEHOLDERS
The Scrum methodology bridges gaps between the development team and other stakeholders, meaning everyone is always on the same page about goals and needs.
Consistent reporting, communication, and stakeholder check-ins provide transparency that goes well beyond typical software development projects.
ADAPTABLE TO EVOLVING NEEDS
Feedback is regularly solicited through sprint reviews, allowing the Scrum team to continually adjust features or functions on an as-needed basis.
PRODUCTS THAT REFLECT YOUR VISION
The continuous feedback cycle of Scrum ensures the final product reflects your vision and precise needs.
NO LONG-TERM COMMITMENTS
By leveraging Scrum as a Service, the team is hired specifically for your project, after which you can choose to hire them full-time.

HOW WE ENGAGE.
UNDERSTAND YOUR NEEDS
Whether you know the tech stack and dev environment of your next project or just have an end goal in mind, we take the time to understand where you are and meet you there.
LAUNCH THE PROJECT TEAM
We know each team is unique. That’s why we launch every project with Agile training, team building, workflow definitions, and stakeholder alignment. These sessions are led by our culture consulting division, Compass, and in-house Agile Coaches.
PROVIDE EXPERT DELIVERY
Our delivery team ensures every project stays on track through performance management, process improvement, and reporting. Our Agile Coaches stay involved as the team develops, providing quarterly coaching sessions to ensure the team is following and improving Scrum practices.
Transitioning a Fortune 500 Telecom Company to an Agile Environment
With a number of upcoming marketing data projects, our client was looking to transition to an Agile environment with self-sufficient DevOps teams that could handle these projects end-to-end.
Keeping cost optimization top of mind, we leveraged Scrum as a Service to stand up an Agile DevOps environment and deploy multiple Scrum teams:
- Scaled 14 Scrum teams across seven lines of business to support the client’s Agile transformation
- Utilized our offshore capabilities to optimize cost, ultimately driving $1.2MM in annual savings
- Focused on upskilling the teams, completing more than 200 tech trainings
Enabling Inventory Tracking on a Grocery Retailer’s Customer-Facing Website
To help increase their customer satisfaction scores, our client was in need of website development that would allow their customers to see product inventory at their local store. This project would need to include the development, launch, and A/B testing of the inventory function.
Evergreen launched a Scrum team that worked in close collaboration with the client stakeholders. Along with support from Evergreen’s Agile Coach, this team delivered the following:
- A process that allowed them to provide the requested functionality as defined, verify its operation, and prepare it for deployment
- Successful on-time launch for the website functionality
- Additional features at the client’s request to further support their growing website needs
Migrating a State’s Paper Records to an Electronic Document Management System
Our client, a state government technology services team, was looking for a method to move away from paper records and bring these documents into a digital environment.
We recognized the need to increase capacity, so the solution started with adding additional teams to the client’s existing resources. Along with hiring and onboarding the additional Scrum teams, we are providing:
- An accelerated conversion of files to the digital repositories thanks to the increased bandwidth
- A defined MVP for the project that will allow for iterative enhancements throughout the migration
- An increased level of transparency for the client by leaning into Scrum
