Agile + DevOps Combined Coaching, Consulting and Training

Over an eight-month period in 2016, ASPE was engaged by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to coach and train a wide variety of technology and development teams on Agile practices and next-generation toolchains and methodologies to help mature their Agile engineering capabilities and promote their newly instituted enterprise CI/CD practice.

Coaching was conducted as a series of seven onsite engagements and working sessions, during which ASPE evaluated, collaborated and assisted with a number of issues and projects. Across this eight-month timeframe, ASPE’s team worked with managers, branch chiefs, and teams, while simultaneously training their teams on Agile and DevOps practices.
