To be competitive, today’s businesses need to be faster and more adaptive to change. That’s where we come in. We work with businesses and government agencies to help them to adapt when confronted with constant customer, market, and technological changes.
We specialise in new ways of working to support businesses to improve the things that matter most to them – speed of delivery, solution quality, and customer satisfaction. Through consulting, coaching, and courses, we'll help to build the mindset and practices that create more productive workplaces and more engaged workers.
From local start-up to agile pioneers
SoftEd was first formed in 1990 as a result of a management buy-out of Datacom Education from Datacom Systems, one of Australasia's largest IT services organisations. As early adopters of agile, we have provided agile services since 2001.
From start-up beginnings in New Zealand, we now operate from a network of offices that span Australia, Asia, New Zealand, and the United States. Today we have built a team that boasts internationally recognised thought leaders in agility.
Over our 30+ year history, we have built up a wealth of experience in building organisational capability and have helped some of the world’s best-known brands to grow their culture and capabilities to be more adaptive, responsive, and future-fit.
The SoftEd difference
At SoftEd, we like to do things a little differently. We believe that there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to change, so we work with your business to develop a change program that works best for you - one that is fit for purpose, fit to work, and fit to last. As pragmatists, we don’t believe in throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Rather, we believe in positive change that is incrementally implemented at a rate that works best for your organisation.
Our aim is to become part of your team. We’ll work closely with you to understand your needs and aspirations and help you to deliver innovative solutions and drive the change your organisation needs in the here and now – and into the future. And with our international reach and knowledge sharing, you’ll benefit from local insights and global skills, no matter the engagement size or location.
Above all, you can expect a wealth of agile experience, a collaborative approach, and sustainable solutions.
Relationships are at the core of what we do. We work closely with our clients to really understand their needs and aspirations to deliver smart solutions for their unique challenges.
Our trainers and consultants are not only the best in the business, they are also passionate about what they do. Our team have a rare combination of experience-based knowledge, razor-sharp technical skills and excellent communication skills.
Some things just go better together – like theory and practice. Our programs offer the best mix of skills and knowledge to maximise your learning experience.
Our programs are world-class and encompass the tried and tested, as well as the latest trends, technologies and methodologies.
Our global reach and local connections mean that our customers benefit from local insights and global skills. We actively share knowledge and foster cooperation across our teams to bring a global best practice approach to problem-solving and delivery.
