Instead of jumping right into the Agile journey without any good preparation, I would recommend you to ask for advice from an agile coach as myself, who has build up a great expertise in succeeding and learning from failures during an Agile transformation. I will gladly listen to "WHY" you would like to pursuit the Agile journey, what vision you have yourself, which expectations and if the full scope and impact of an Agile Transformation is clear. Afterwards, we can decide about the next steps.
I apply a framework because the complexity and sensitivity of an Agile evolution necessitates consulting discipline.Learn More
Before you jump into the conclusion to run an agile transformation, think very carefully and consider to ask yourself a few questions. I would always advice to verify the organisational and cultural readiness to start the Agile transformation. The need can be high, but if you are not ready, you could negatively damage your organisation and we certainly don't want that to happen.Learn More
Measure and visualize which organisational components could slow down your Agile transformation. Afterwards you can discuss this within a group what needs to be prioritized and what needs to be tackled first before engaging into an Agile transformation.Learn More
Cultural transformation is more than just a phrase. It’s a commitment to shifting a company’s culture so that employees feel like they belong, and they can invest in the long-term success of an organization. And when an employee feels this way, your company wins; workers who feel valued in their positions are 50% more productive than those who don’t.Learn More
Involve your employees in the decision to transform to an Agile way of working. Make sure you get an alignment and it's not a top-down decision. Ask yourself : * How do we convince people to adopt the new ways of working? * How do we get the organization moving in the new direction? * How do we make decisions about how to implement the new way of workingLearn More
People are happiest and most productive if they can choose what they work on and who they work withLearn More
A lot of discussions have been made whether, as a transition coach, you should verify the readiness of an organisation to start with the agile journey. What is their business context? Do you think this is necessary or would you come up with a different idea?
