As digital solutions become so ingrained in our services, many businesses are looking to optimise their digital operations. We have extensive experience supporting large and complex organisations as they adopt agile practices. This includes working with multinational, distributed project teams and scaling to large multi-site, multi-team implementations.
If you’re looking to move to an agile delivery or to undertake an agile transformation, we can help through a comprehensive program of training and coaching. We will help you to lay the foundation for agility through the creation of high performing delivery teams. This includes adopting and embedding the principles and practices of agility, creating an agile culture and becoming a learning-centric organisation that is nimble, adaptive and productive.
We can help you build an agile transformation plan that meets you where you are currently, but can take you where you need to be. Our Kanban 'start from where you are now' approach focusses on three core values: sustainability; service-orientation; and survivability, and enables change to be implemented at a rate and to an extent that best works for your organisation.
We are brand agnostic in our approach - our only preference is to find a model that best suits your needs. We support the thinking embodied in the Agile Manifesto and are well versed in applying many of the approaches that fall under the 'big agile tent' such as Scrum, Kanban, Scrumban, eXtreme Programming, Lean Startup, LeanUX, Design Thinking and many others that may be used to build your agile toolkit.
The traditional place to start an agile adoption is with a shift in project delivery practices. This stage is essentially about teamwork; fostering a more collaborative and productive way of working with a strong sense of purpose and customer focus. There is a shift here, away from functional milestones towards a focus to become more output-led through continuous integration and delivery.
The next step in the journey is to consider the strategy and planning behind your portfolio and programs. Like adopting agile practices in a project setting, this requires a different way of working and impacts many parts of the business including the PMO, Risk Advisors, Finance, Procurement, Product Managers and others. These groups all have deep expertise in their chosen domains with the common thread that they all want to add value back to the business.
As the agile journey matures, there is a shift towards the concept of enterprise-wide value management. This level of maturity provides the greatest benefit as leaders are empowered to solve the biggest challenges they face, drive organisational change, and create a sustainable learning culture for the future.
Agile development increases business value, adaptability and visibility whilst at the same time reducing risk. It offers the following benefits:
Stakeholder engagement:Agile provides regular opportunities for customer engagement - ensuring the right solution is implemented.
Reduced risk and waste: By delivering more frequently, agile helps businesses respond more effectively.
Faster to market: Solutions are implemented quickly and frequently through time-boxed sprints.
Lower costs: Implementation costs are lower and benefits are returned earlier. Because each sprint is a fixed duration, the cost is predictable.
Focus on value: Highest priority items are delivered first enabling benefits to be realised earlier and the backlog to be constantly refined and reprioritised to deliver maximum value.
Quality: By breaking down the project into manageable units, the project team can focus on high-quality development, testing, and collaboration.
