The minimum set of practices and solutions to make agility happen across teams, organisations and locations (wherever the set comes from)
Forward-Looking Organizations Understand
Departments and the complete enterprise need to operate with speed and reliability.
The focus needs to be on creating business value and a sustainable future.
Agile decision making needs to happen at all levels and without the fear of loosing control.
Insights We Found
Agility at the cross-organizational and enterprise levels is somewhat different than agile in IT.
Hidden root causes of cross-organisational impediments need to be solved.
Gaps in today’s agile thinking need to be closed.
Simple solutions are waiting to complement agile methods and to accelerate agile scale-up projects.
Examples of Simple Solutions
Guided Self-OrganisationTM with 30,000 employees provided the bridge to make agile decisions possible and to stay within the boundaries important to the company. Natural process flows provided one of the key features to make it possible. This method was published as the Strategy Management Process and far ahead of its time.
Cultural issues disappeared without a culture change project. They disappeared when straight-forward, technical problems, hiding behind the cultural issues, had been resolved.
The mounting conflicts between traditional and agile best practices can be solved with a single word.
How We can Help
Training, Coaching, Facilitation and/or Project Health Checks
We start by accepting that every environment is different.
We listen carefully to what matters, lessons learned and to the hidden causes of impediments and tough problems.
We apply practices to get people of conflicting views on the same page quickly.
We coach for going beyond the tipping point, where solutions become executable and durable.
We Fill a Structural Gap in Today's Solution Thinking
When the internal knowledge is exhausted, we contribute often seen lessons learned and hidden root causes of high impact. You decide which of them are relevant.
Together with some of your employees, we identify the executable solution framework.
With focus on ‘lowest-effort/highest-impact’, the solution framework is usually found after a few workshops and relatively simple.
