Transforming your organisation to become agile is about people, culture and behaviour, more than it is about systems, structure, processes and tools.
Going agile is more than selecting a method or framework. We need to synchronise structure, culture and behaviour. Established methods, frameworks and Agile best practice such as Scrum, Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS), Kanban, Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD) and Lean are all useful sources for inspiration on the structure. But this should be secondary to focussing on people, culture and behaviour.
In our opinion, the purpose of agile transformations is to unlock human and business potential – in that order. We are committed to leaving people and organisations in a truly better place: more changeable, more engaged and better equipped for creating a better future.
We help leaders create organisations that are more fit for humans and fit for the future. This requires a shift in our mindset, as going agile means going:
To set your agile transformation up for success, we have developed a model covering six activity tracks that we recommend you to cover:
Have you defined the impact of introducing agile ways of working for your organisation? Do you have a unified vision enabling you to grasp opportunities to build better products for your customers?
Have you clearly defined behavioural targets and agile values in your organisation that are being pivoted by catalyst leaders? And do you have the right development and learning opportunities to reach your vision?
Do you have governance and processes in place to support heartbeat and ceremonies in the agile way of working? Do you have prioritisation which focuses on business outcomes and enables quick decision-making to optimise customer outcomes?
Is your organisation organised around value streams with cross-functional competencies for minimal handovers delivering end-to-end value with clear roles and responsibilities?
Do you have the right IT architecture, infrastructure and tools to enable agility and faster release cycles?
Is your organization ready to embrace a culture which supports delegation of responsibilities and empowered employees? And do you have communities with shared values and a clear link/collaboration between units?
Implementing agile metrics allows you to make fact-based decisions to set a direction in your organisation.
