We founded ConsultoraBK® in 2003 to provide the best consulting and development services, maintaining long-term relationships with few large companies. Providing high-level services performed by high-performance teams using the best methodologies gives us the opportunity to offer our services to large corporations, in many occasions, from South America to Central America, North America and Europe.
Our first case of success was published in 2011 by Brenntag Corp LATAM (headquarters in Houston) to whom we have been providing services since 2006, including management, mentoring and coaching in the development and implementation of applications in more than a dozen Latin American countries.Our latest case of success in IT products, documented and used as a case study in several universities since last year, has been the coaching of the first Agile digital product "Corporate Go" of ICBC (Industrial and Commercial Bank of China) made in Argentina for Argentina.
Our latest documented success case of non-IT high performance teams has been coaching and mentoring in various areas of Human Resources, Sales, Marketing, Communications and Operational Support to branches of a multinational bank.
We are currently dedicated to training Scrum teams and inducing the change of mindset necessary for the Agile transformation of companies, including Coaching and Mentoring for groups that wish to become high performance agile teams.
This includes selection of teams, integral assessment of the company including its dynamics, processes and communication styles, identifying strengths, risks and opportunities for improvement and Agile assessment of the agility level achieved.
Not only do we implement Agile methodologies and tools, but we also train their internal coaches so they can better implement the Scrum framework at a 100% with Lean and Kanban to guarantee both the continuous improvement of the Processes and the Empirical Control.
This allows us to demonstrate in practice in a short time how to naturally scale Scrum, allowing companies to reduce their bureaucracy while their teams are synchronized with Scrum@scale framework.
