Assessment and Planning
This service helps organizations understand how they are progressing in Agile adoption and results in detailed recommendations for process improvement. Our Agile coaches review your existing teams, their process and their past performance. We then compare those with the Agile themes and principles‑as well as our own best practices—to recommend and provide guidelines that will help your organization succeed.

- Courses on everything from best practices and organizational change to artifacts implementation and coaching
- Workshops on everything from Agile 101 and Team Jumpstart to Scrum master training
- Two-in-a-box Agile coaches, a personalized coaching model that includes an onsite client manager experienced in your industry working with you, as well as a dedicated delivery manager
Our Application Value Management services help address the challenging dual mandate of improving efficiencies and delivering outcomes.
To improve efficiencies we enable industrialization through a service catalog, hardwiring Continual Service Improvement (CSI) and transformation into it. To deliver outcomes, we perform intelligent analysis of data across the business-IT blueprint and continuously look to reduce "time-to-value" for applications. We deliver this through Microsoft proprietary suite of application management frameworks and tools.
Fortknox offerings are broadly classified under the following engagement lifecycle stages–Solution, Transition, Execution and Transformation.
To design a holistically sound solution and identify opportunities to transform the way you do business, we take into account your business challenges and provide an achievable roadmap for transformation, the ability to cater to demand variability and reduce your total cost of ownership.
Fortknox utilizes the Service Catalog as an enabler for industrialization and drives toward outcome based engagement.
Fortknox enables progressive engagement maturity by providing a transformation road map after assessing the current maturity level.
Fortknox enables context-based pricing model selection and accurate tool-based sizing.
Fortknox helps in base lining the application and portfolio maturity to improve the ROI of your applications..

Fortknox enables orchestration between multiple service lines to deliver business outcomes, thus maximizing the value extracted from IT
