Nisum Helps Reduce Feature Costs by 40+% with Lean Labs and Agile Pods

Dec 17, 2020 8:50:59 AM

Nisum’s Lean Lab team utilized the Agile Pods model to reduce project costs and timelines.


The Client’s new business model launched and continues to operate successfully, leading to:

  • 50+% reduction in time-to-market
  • 24+ labs nurtured through the Lean Labs program

Business Challenge:

A Fortune 500 mega-retailer was several years behind the competition with outdated project management and delivered features that were no longer relevant at completion, leading to:

  • A long lead time to market due to focus being placed on planning and documentation 
  • Bad feature investment due to being inflexible to building features based on customer feedback, making the feature irrelevant at the time of market launch
  • Inflated budgets due to using an end-to-end execution plan with dedicated teams across domains


Nisum’s Lean Lab team (a cross-functional team that enables an idea from inception to production-ready) adopted the Agile Pods model (self-sufficient teams focused on delivering a module) to split the project into smaller, independent project modules that were distributed to the pods, resulting in:

  • Reduced time-to-market by introducing parallel execution in the Agile Pods model, shortening the timelines for the project
  • Reduced feature costs by allocating right-sized, self-sufficient, and cross-functional teams and removing management costs
  • Nurturing 24+ Lean Labs by introducing a model team using Nisum’s Scrum-Team-as-a-Service (STaaS) offering to showcase the ROI by executing the project and training the client’s teams simultaneously
