With agile transformation, there's no one-size-fits-all

You've heard it all before—faster time to market, happier customers, more engaged employees—the benefits of agile practices are clear. That said, implementing them is tough. As your business scales, the need to break down silos and improve company-wide collaboration becomes more important, and more difficult.

It may be cliché, but every organisation really is different, with varying needs and challenges. Adopting agile ways of working allows you to react and respond to change positively while ensuring the customer remains at the heart of everything you do.

Where to begin?

It's important not to be daunted by the prospect of agile transformation. Remember, you're not starting from scratch. Our experts meet you where you are and guide you through the right practices specific to your business needs, and the needs of your staff.

From choosing the right process framework and tools to go with it, to changing your mindset to one that embraces innovation and autonomy—there are many layers to getting agile transformation right. Here you'll find our most useful resources to equip you with the knowledge and understanding to help drive real transformational change.

The Four facets of Agility: The foundation for transformational success

Going beyond just people, process and tools, the four facets of agility offers up a new lens with which to view agile practices and kickstart transformation in your organisation. From questions to help you shift your mindset as a leader, to practical advice based on years of experience, our experts lay it all on the table.

Putting people first

When it comes to successful agile transformation, people must come first. Breaking away from outdated, hierarchical ways of working requires a mindset shift across your organisation.

Our Agile Mentoring aims to do just that—helping to unlock innovation, collaboration and autonomy in businesses of all sizes.

Top down, or bottom up?

Becoming a more agile organisation can’t (and definitely shouldn’t) be imposed from above. Nor can effective change come solely from the grassroots. For true change to take hold, getting people on board is crucial.

Once seen as only relevant for software development teams, agile practices are being adopted by teams across organisations from Marketing and Sales to HR and Finance—helping the whole company break down silos and work towards common, visible goals.

Planning the way

Choosing the right process framework

Agile process frameworks are the glue that guide your teams and keep you on track when scaling agile practices. They allow you to connect business value to delivery, keeping the big picture front of mind right through your entire organisation.

With a whole host of frameworks out there—from Scrum to LeSS to SAFe®—or even the option of following your own, it can be hard to know where to start. With over 70% of the fortune 100 adopting SAFe®, it may seem like the natural choice for an enterprise organisation, but our experts work with you to choose, or create, and implement the right framework for your business.
