EXPERT GUIDANCE IN SCALING AGILITY
Agile (or agility) is more than just a mentality-an alternate state of mind. Transitioning from ‘doing agile’ to ‘being agile’ requires something other than just an assortment of practices; it requires an organization to embrace agility as the way of operation and to thrive. It requires a new way of living and working for those organizations.
Many organizations have been building software and related products for decades or years. Gone are the days of “shrink-wrapped” software that were delivered in a strict serial model called “waterfall” that went from requirements to delivery in big block of steps. The world has decided to move much faster and build smaller software in incremental steps. This may be a quantum leap for many product development organizations and the challenges faced to make it happen may be mountain high.
Change Management is the first step in your agile transformation journey. We start by setting up the business objectives and sort out change authority groups necessary to meet those objectives. Each change program is built to fit particular customer needs from field-tried change designs adjusted with change models and agile practices. Some changes may be global that impact the entire development and connected organizations. Some changes may be more localized to specific development groups, such as, software development or device manufacturing. Regardless of scale of change, managing the change in a rigorous way exhibits the discipline necessary to successfully complete any agile transformation project.
Delivery Agility changes your skilled people into high-performing, autonomous teams who can deliver software and product rapidly and reliably in a well-coordinated manner. Once change management captures the entire transformation steps and flows, delivery agility bridges the gap between agile hypothesis and practice.
