Most IT teams have improved flexibility, productivity and quality with Lean-Agile methods like Scrum and Kanban. However, organisations as a whole often remain ineffective due to weak business-IT alignment, project-based funding, a management-heavy culture, and a disconnected delivery pipeline.
agileXL helps organisations ‘be’ Agile and Lean end-to-end, with total alignment and collaboration, a thriving culture, and high customer value. Our expertise is to transform and “scale-to-fit” Lean-Agile culture, organisation structure, and multi-level life cycle methods.
This is a showcase of typical elements in our custom-fit training and coaching.
"Single-team" Agile methods like Scrum or Kanban generally do not suffice for 5+ teams and large programs, especially not when many dependencies exist. How do all IT teams align with business strategy, marketing, sales and finance? How are programs or platforms driven? How is the work of multiple inter-dependent teams planned, defined, architected and integrated? And how can engineering changes be synchronised and deployed frequently?
Since frameworks are a means to implement strategy, we select and fit the framework to your needs. The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) and Spotify Model with customisations have often helped us do this in a very effective way. Alternatively, we help you build and implement a complete custom-fit set of roles and processes.
Industry surveys such as VersionOne's annual State of Agile survey demonstrate that Enterprise agility is increasing throughout organisations at an accelerated rate. The Agile scaling success factors and challenges measured in these surveys highlight the importance of culture, skills and experience.
