CDG has significant experience in providing Agile Delivery Management resources and has delivered a number of customer projects based on the methodology including Post Office.

Post Office had little experience or capability of agile but was keen to understand how they might realize some of the obvious benefits. They also had an historic reliance and dependency on single incumbent suppliers that were commercially restrictive. CDG led on the definition and implementation of a practical agile methodology that would help Post Office to incrementally move towards agile. Based on Scrum Agile, CDG engaged with Post Office to deliver the architectural design, platform build and implementation of a showcase Carbon Digital Platform.

This initiative is also being used as an exemplar by Post Office to demonstrate how agile development and control could be applied across other organisation initiatives. In order to support this, CDG proposed the introduction of a Technology Office. CDG’s Technology Office has been responsible for ensuring the agile and rapid development of Post Office digital services, architectural models and supporting process requirements which are aligned to pre-qualified business needs and strategies.

The Technology Office supports an iterative approach to software build, development and implementation which ensure that Post office users and services needs are continuously addressed and the delivery of software milestones are achieved in a timely manner (and in line with best practice architecture and design requirements).

Post Office is currently seeking to expand Technology Office as an in house capability with the full support of CDG.

Byte Night

Byte Night is Action for Children's biggest annual fundraiser; a national ‘sleep-out’ event. Each year, hundreds of like-minded people from the technology and business arena give up their beds for one night to help change the lives of vulnerable young people. It all began in 1998 when 30 individuals slept out in London and raised £35,000. Since then Byte Night has grown to 8 UK locations and over 1200 people slept out in 2015. Byte Night is one of the UK’s top 20 mass participation charity events and is the largest charity sleep-out having raised over £7.2m since the first event.

Fauna and Flora

Fauna and Flora (FFI) is no stranger to innovation. As far back as the early 1900’s they were devising and applying innovative models of conservation which helped create some of the earliest protected areas in Africa, including South Africa’s Kruger National Park in 1926. FFI was also one of the earliest conservation organisations to electronically tag and track wildlife, and has helped rescue countless species from the verge of extinction, including the Arabian Oryx.

Conservation Labs

Conservation Labs is a new FFI initiative looking to explore the potential application of new technologies for global conservation. There remains considerable untapped potential, and a growing need for dedicated technical expertise to help the conservation community understand, adapt and deploy new and appropriate technologies in their work
