With a focus on guest wellbeing, a record of operational safety and efficiency, and a "Develop. Own. Operate." business model, Civeo provides integrated accommodation solutions that support the success of their clients over the life of their projects.
Civeo is growing rapidly due to a strategy of acquisitions and the IT Application team is under increasing pressure to roll out new application solutions quickly. The Civeo team were wanting to adopt agile as a better way to deliver new application solutions for the business, however they needed to standardise on a single proven approach and ensure all staff were trained in the latest thinking.
DB Results were chosen to help Civeo with this project due to DB's delivery experience, not only the classroom agile fundamentals but also how to put agile in to practice in terms of project team structures and engaging with the business.
Over the course of a week, DB Results delivered a combination of tailored training sessions, including Train the Trainer, workshops and discussions. All staff attending were extremely engaged during the courses. The focus for these courses was on practical theory with real life examples rather than interactive learning. The DB Results team took Civeo through common and existing problems, and how Best Practices could be adapted to their business. The benefit was that the fundamentals were adopted, and staff could see how the agile methodology could be applied in Civeo's environment.
This initial engagement has allowed Civeo to commence a pilot project using agile, supported by a team from DB Results, and are now in a position to embark on their agile journey.
The DB team were great – very experienced and easy to work with. We look forward to continuing our relationship with DB Results with ongoing review, advice, and hands-on coaching.
