Pandera Introduces Agile Analytics, Taking the Agile Methodology to Whole New Levels

Over 60% of companies have become Agile, a method that was once used primarily for software development processes, but is now being used across the board, in areas such as marketing or human resources. With significant investments being made into adopting the Agile methodology, the big question is how do we know how those investments are really impacting the business?

Pandera is transforming the way companies use Agile by combining key executive goals, the Agile mindset, and analytics to drive change within the most important investment of a company: its people. This transformation of combining analytics with traditional Agile services will drive measurable change within a company’s human capital to drive realtime team productivity, velocity, quality and a team’s self-managing maturity.
