About Celerity Consulting
Celerity Consulting was originally founded in 2005 as Celerity Technical Services, Inc., a defense contractor with the mission of leading the first widespread government agile project. In the years following this initial project, Celerity began branching out into other highly-regulated industries such as health care, education, and construction. During this time, we evolved into a full-blown agile training and coaching organization, including leadership consulting, strategic Agile visioning, and team training and coaching.
At Celerity Consulting, our deepest passion is inspiring others to think differently about how they attack tough problems. Whether a software application, school project, or major upgrade at a hospital, we believe Agile innovation creates the competitive edge that regulated projects and organizations need to thrive in today’s rapidly changing marketplace.
In true Agile style, Celerity Consulting seeks out teamwork whenever possible. In addition to being a founding member of The Agile Cooperative, our reach is facilitated through partnerships with groundbreaking organizations such as BrainTrust, Version One/CollabNet, and Accenture, among others. But our relationships don’t stop there. We enjoy nurturing ongoing relationships with our clients as well. Some of our favorites (that we’re allowed to mention here) include iHeart Media, Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Federal Government, GE Aviation, Indiana University, and Photoshelter.
Celerity Consulting is a small independent woman-owned business.
