Maximum Software Velocity with Ascendle

Peak performance for software teams requires the optimization of people, processes, and tools. Though each plays a vital role, the synergies that occur when all three elements are maximized drive organizations to higher levels than previously achieved. Ascendle’s custom software development training and coaching help teams ship mission-critical, quality software faster.

Ascendle has extensive experience conducting tailored assessments on the factors preventing your team from achieving their potential. From team chemistry to agile performance through DevOps, we find where you’re outperforming the competition and where your agility is being compromised.

Gaps in agile or engineering are then addressed via custom components from our Ascendle AcademySM training system, delivered both in-classroom and on-project.
