Marks and Spencer & Codurance

We helped transition their processes to cater for new projects

Our work

We provided mentoring and support at M&S, while there was a cultural transformation helping them prepare for their new projects and environments.

The Project

The Challenge

Marks and Spencers’ engineering department was entering a period of cultural change, with people being re-assigned to new teams ahead of several large digital projects.

Approach

With our connections to the wider community and passion for Software Craftsmanship, Codurance were seen as a partner that could help to raise both code quality and to help establish a new team with this department through mentoring and guidance.

Outcome

Through careful mentoring and support we were able to raise the technical knowledge and technical practices on our respective teams. We were also able to put in place practices and conventions that other teams were able to adopt and contribute towards.

Given an impending office move away from London and change in work practices, one of the biggest challenges was preparing the department for working in a remote environment.

To that end we spent a lot of time working with the teams to help them establish the appropriate toolsets and protocols to make remote working as effective as possible.
