How Infinity Works, works

All projects have different constraints, requirements and definitions of success and quality. That's why we're never dogmatic about following any one set of "best practice" principles, or any pre-conceived notions of quality. Instead, we seek to understand the constraints within which we’re working and build systems within them.

Aligning priorities for successful delivery

Change and compromise are inevitable in any project. We present trade-offs clearly and objectively though, allowing everyone to reach agreements. Internal teams can also have a natural focus on the immediate problems they face in their particular area of concern (rather than considering the bigger picture or the overall value of a project or programme). This can result in conflicting objectives within the business.

Our challenge is marrying these conflicting drivers, delivering a positive outcome to a shared set of objectives. Our philosophy of Practical Engineering and our toolkit of Agile@Scale techniques help us achieve this goal.

The philosophy of practical engineering

Our approach to our work is based on pragmatism, openness and honesty. We begin by making the most effective possible use of your team, optimising your own delivery capabilities. We work with a focus on operability - always looking ahead to the operation, monitoring and ultimate purpose of a system. We think in terms of service delivery, not just software engineering.

Our approach

Agile@Scale: A toolkit, not a methodology

Many frameworks, even in the world of agile, are heavyweight, inefficient, and often ineffective. In their place, we've developed Agile@Scale - a toolkit, not a methodology. It's been developed to make us more responsive: we listen to your objectives, challenges and constraints and adapt our approach accordingly, rather than forcing a rigid methodology upon you.
