Graham Lee: Your team’s helpful labrarian.

Often, what’s needed on those frustrating problems in delivering high-quality software is a fresh pair of eyes, and some external experience. A mixture of experimentation in the lab, and research in the library. Because you simultaneously want to stop and think, and move fast.

Labrary offers a consulting labrarian for your software or research software engineering team. Don’t think “I need to implement a big transformation programme and want to get a consultant in”. Instead, think “Most of this team’s work is great, and I wish these other things were going so well.” Or “We’re going to try something new, and want to make sure we’re solving the right problems.” You don’t need someone to tell you you’re doing Agile wrong, you need to locate and address a bottleneck, open the team’s eyes to a surprising blind spot, or bootstrap the team with some extra experience.

As a first step, set up a free, one-hour “office hours” session with Graham. Then let’s see how your team can combine a few hours in the lab with a few in the library to become even more awesome.

What sorts of issues?


The Labrary developed the PETRI framework to help decision makers handle the fact that managing a software product means understanding emergent behaviour arising from the interactions of three complex systems.
