Agile Transformation

Agility in Mind focuses organizations on agile transformation outcomes, so that they can respond to continued and rapid change of any kind – digital, political, economic, social, technological, legal or environmental.

We have a flexible package of agile transformation consulting, to support you in achieving your outcomes. To set you off in the right direction, try our Agile Transformation Kick-Start. Our agile transformation coaching model has been adopted over many years of working with organizations of all sizes.

On your agile transformation journey you’ll need to consider the following:

Know why you're doing it

It may seem obvious, but many organizations never ask the question “why?”

Any change program has associated costs, so the business case needs to be clear. For the leadership team, it’s important that the characteristics of an agile organization are agreed, as it is easy to be misaligned. We help to achieve this through workshop activities.

Understand the constraints

We operate in the real world.

Organizations have particular constraints to do with geography, capacity, legacy, and governance. People also have perceived constraints, for example, because things have always been done in a certain way.

Some constraints can be challenged head-on and included within the transformation program, while others are more complex.

Prioritize

Unless there is an understanding of “why” and “what is valuable”, there will be little chance of prioritizing the approach.

The reason for prioritizing the change program is to ensure that we do the most valuable things first, building confidence and providing a return on investment.

Change incrementally

Many organizations take on too much in one go when it’s better to build momentum based on prioritized change.

This might mean beginning with one small team with fewer constraints, getting them working, and showcasing the progress and results. Starting small and scaling quickly, based on success, builds confidence that change will achieve the outcomes needed.

Measure Progress

It’s possible to identify key metrics that demonstrate the impact of change.
These could include specific delivery-oriented metrics or measures of confidence within teams. By making them visible, people can see that there is a point to the process. It’s important to realize that change can have a short-term detrimental impact on metrics, but also that this can provide valuable insight.

Improve continuously

An agile organization is one that constantly seeks to inspect the way things are done and adapt to changing conditions.

This requires a culture of continuous improvement, where individuals have the confidence to question processes and make changes for the better. With this philosophy, organizations can build a sustainable approach and remove dependencies upon external coaching.

Have impact

Our Agile Transformation Impact Model is designed to have an impact. Find out more.

Having impact at the beginning of an agile transformation means confidence is built so that people will put new ways of working into action.
