What Our Customers Say

Susan Courtney

SVP Technology and Operations & CIO at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska

I could not more strongly recommend Agile Transformation. They were absolutely critical to a very successful transformation of our Information Services department. We worked with them to define our vision, roadmap and supporting execution plan – and it has paid off. We have bridged the gap that we previously had between IS and our business partners, we have a much more empowered and high performing enterprise, and we have truly transformed our culture! Thank you Agile Transformation!!!
