IMPROVING YOUR BUSINESS AGILITY
Doing business today is a complex endeavor. Markets and technologies continuously evolve. Business agility is no longer an option.
Using our proven approach, we help you to safely and pragmatically achieve real success with business agility across these five key outcome categories:
PREDICTABILITY: Improving your capacity to plan & predictably deliver
RAPID RESULTS: Improving results through quick wins and early ROI
LOWER COSTS: Improving & reducing costs by improving your process
INNOVATION: Improving by creating the conditions where innovation can happen
RESPONSIVENESS: Improving by rapidly sensing & responding to opportunities
The first step if you are new to Agile is to clearly define your desired outcomes and success criteria.
And then assess your current state against those criteria, identifying any gaps.
Once that assessment is complete, we look at what training may be needed to begin the process of closing that gap.
The next step is to identify the set of teams who will participate in your pilot program. The learning process during the pilot may be bumpy at first.
During the pilot phase, we measure in these 4 specific domains of improvement, at a minimum:
Scaling change is a complex endeavor. Successful pilot programs do not guarantee success at scale. A lack of experienced Scrum Masters is a common challenge to achieving success at scale.
We identify where there may be some gaps in required skills and exprience. We then address those gaps, by temporarily staffing up with talented consultants who have the right skillsets.
The primary mission of our consultants is to teach and mentor your people, so they can take over, after we leave.
The risks of scaling are actively managed by defining direction, defining “guardrails,” and delivering guidance. Leading enterprise change is a key executive skill that can be taught.
We convey this skill to your executive team, while working hard at coaching your delivery teams as well. In this manner, your entire organization reaches a state of freestanding, self-sustaining business agility.
