Greater customer expectations. Getting products and services into market faster. Increasing regulation. Regardless of industry, many organisations are having to do more, and often with less – whether that’s time, people or budget.
Taking an Agile approach, at both a programme or organisational level, is proven to help business leaders not only deal with these challenges but also to thrive and grow. But achieving the benefits of Agile is more than just a methodology – it must be supported by the right leadership, culture, governance and organisational structure.
We have extensive experience in leading successful Agile programmes for organisations around the world – including the largest Scaled Agile transformations in banking, life sciences and the UK Government. With over 350 qualified Agile practitioners, we combine Agile techniques with deep industry expertise and knowledge in delivering long-lasting business change.
In our view, there are five key characteristics of an Agile organisation:
Rapid and ongoing understanding of what your customer wants is essential to drive value.
time to value
Organisations deliver to customers in short cycles. Shortening time to value enhances the financial performance of an organisation and makes customers happier.
Through an empowering, collaborative, entrepreneurial culture, employees take ownership of company outcomes. This gives better engagement and improved morale.
Using higher-fidelity and lightweight processes, organisations find it easier to pivot their focus according to priorities and value. The organisation is always working on what is most important at any given moment in time.
Agile organisations have fewer layers, a reduced management overhead and seek to build simplicity in. This makes organisations less brittle under change.
