MAHD Service Providers

Introduction to MAHD Service Providers

MAHD services providers are experts in the MAHD Framework and can help guide your team to agile success. Each provider has been been trained and certified to assess your situation, develop a customized learning and implementation roadmap as well as provide the following services: 

  • Agile for Hardware Workshops –  Learning programs to build new agile skills for teams. These can be customized for your goals and situation.

  • Team and 1-on-1 Coaching – Coaching for team members in key roles such as agile project leaders, product owners, product managers and technical leaders as well as team-based coaching to facilitate pilot project activities, refine skills and guide implementation.

  • NPD Assessment & Transformation – Help with analyzing your current situation throughout the product lifecycle and identifying bottlenecks, challenges and areas where agile methods can provide significant improvement. The result is a clear path from your current state of NPD to your desired state. 

Why Work with a Certified MAHD Consultant?

We’ve heard from many companies that have tried to implement MAHD methods by researching agile and using the tools we provide on this site. Some have been very successful, but overall most struggle due to one of the following reasons:

  • There is a strong voice in the company that guides them to focus on current agile for SW methods such as Scrum
  • Only one or two people learn the methods and then try to implement without getting everyone on board
  • There is an attempt to use a small part of the MAHD Framework so their results are very limited or they give up
  • The teams struggle to adapt specific elements such as user stories or Iteration Plans, so fall back to their traditional methods

Working with a Certified MAHD Consultant can accelerate the benefits you’ll see from agile methods and help you develop an implementation roadmap what works for your situation.
