Traditional Leadership vs Agile Teams
Leaders must understand their roles in the Agile process in order to effectively lead an Agile organization. When proper Agile leadership is not in place, it can be frustrating for leaders as well as team members. In addition to damage caused to company culture, improper Agile leadership can impede progress and reduce revenue.
Leadership training is critical when making the transition to Agile. Our leadership courses are great when it comes to clarifying leadership roles in the Agile process, and allowing leaders to understand the significance their actions play when it comes to the success or failure of an Agile team.Read More About Leadership Training
Where Do We Focus
When business priorities are in a state of constant flux, it becomes hard to know what to work on.
Agile training can put you on the right track, prioritizing backlog items so you always have a clear vision of what to work on now and what to work on next.Improve Focus
Silos, Handoffs, Lack of Collaboration, Lack of Trust
Many things contribute to heavy processes. They’re often built with the best intentions, but end up dragging time to market.
Please talk to us! We started One80 Services because we have seen too many companies build the wrong level of process at the wrong time. They either build crushing amounts of process that drags time-to-market, or not enough structure to control the chaos. Our mission is to help teams to build a practical approach to managing and prioritizing work that leads to innovation and quality deliverables.Let’s Lighten Your Load
Missing, Changing, Incomplete, Ambiguous Requirements
When requirements are unclear, progress is impeded as you’re running around asking what you should build. Bugs come back and pile up because you either didn’t have clear requirements to work with, or requirements have changed as you were working.
Your team needs Agile training. Let us show you how to gather requirements, and then build the perfect backlog. We’ll show you how to manage requirements in a way that will be simple and better than what you’re doing today.Define Your Targeted Goals

What Our Clients Say
Could you tell us a bit about One80 Services?
“No one process works for every company. One80 understands the business problem and business domain we deal in, and are flexible in their processes to say what’s important and what’s not. They come up with a unique custom process that will help you and your company be the most efficient.” – Mike S.
“One80 is very knowledgeable about Scrum. They stay very current, very true to the parts of Scrum that work. They are good teachers, very personable, easy going, great at their job. I trust them completely, which is why I wanted them so badly. The One80 team still gets critical, high profile work from me because I know I don’t have to worry about it.” – Dea M.Rely on One80
Why did you choose One80 Services?
“During the interview process, we heard solutions, ideas and foresight from One80 that other candidates were nowhere near giving us at that point. This was the biggest thing that stood out and it still does. One80 provides solutions and thinking. They are not just checking off boxes.” – Kiley H.
“It almost felt like we were consulting with One80 even before we hired them. Our gut feeling was that they were going to be ultra flexible and find something that worked for us and understand our business rather than trying to jam a process down our throats.” – Michael S.
“I needed people I could trust who would get to the bottom of what was going on. I needed someone to get teams back to high performance. I had good experiences with One80.” – Dea S.Talk to Us
What makes One80 different from other Agile training companies?
“Their experience – they have not just been Agile coaches or specialists or trainers their whole career, they have lived in my world.” – Michael S.
“One80 Services can teach it and do it. A lot of companies in the Agile space…they are just there to teach. They learn the buzz words. They learn the training piece of it, but they have never done it – or have never done it well. It’s one thing to go through training, another to have a problem and need help. One80’s coaches have enough experience to ask the questions and help with problems. We’ve worked with people nationally — in Chicago, other places around the country. They teach it and preach it, but don’t know how to do it.” – Dea M.
Understand the Why
“The one thing a lot of others tend to do is give you the rituals of project management, but they don’t help you understand why. There are several different methodologies out there and they tend to blend together. One80 doesn’t just give you facts and rituals, they give you the why and the when so you understand how to be effective as a PM.” – Sean B.Experience the Difference
What are your favorite things about One80 Services?
“One80 does a great job of teaching. They really teach the people around them. Very good at that. They are not just going to put process in place and leave. They teach you how to fish. They are patient and professional, but easy going and laid back. They get buy-in really quickly from the people they work with, which helps get the team become really effective really fast.” – Dea M.
“During the process of engaging One80, they weren’t trying to nickel and dime us as they were getting in the door. They wanted to build a relationship. It was not high pressure. We had very open and honest conversations from the start.” – Michael S.
