Rapid developments in technology, customer preferences, and employee expectations are transforming industries at a fast pace. But today’s organisations are often not built to cope with fast change. To survive and thrive, companies need to revolutionise how they operate. This entails creating a resilient configuration, and a culture that is focused on learning and improving to compete and win in today’s world.
An effective transition to agile empowers organisations to: increase the speed of execution at scale, better respond to customer needs, increase productivity, and engage and empower employees.
We have seen consultants fail by trying to impose the agile process in organisations from the top-down. As well as purists who weren’t willing to recognise that imperfect transitional states may be required to get agile to be applied at scale. This is why we build diverse teams of consultants and digital specialists. Their combined perspectives and lessons learned will ensure you reap the benefits of agile early on.
We work with you to define the ‘minimum viable team’ required to achieve your outcomes. No more, no less. We will complement the skills you have in your team, rather than duplicating them, so you are getting value for your investment. Our independent consulting model means that we can scale the team up or down if your requirements change. And that we can deliver strategic thinking as well as people to complement skills in your agile teams.
We lead change by doing. Any agile transformation will be delivered using agile methods – it is as simple as that. We maintain rolling 90 day plans, re-assessing the end-state vision and roadmap based upon how our understanding has evolved during the course of the transformation – while creating clarity, accountability, and measurable progress for everyone.
