Practice Architecture on Top of Essence

A Key Enabler to Manufacturer’s Agile Transformation

An IT division of a large global telecommunications equipment manufacturer with approximately 3000 staff and 700 contractors needed to keep up with business demands for shorter application development lead times, higher quality and productivity, so they embarked on an agile transformation initiative. Working with Ivar Jacobson International the client established a common ground and a practice architecture based on Essence to shape its adoption strategy and align coaches. The client has received tremendous results to date and progress continues:

  • An agile way of working spread to 5,000 practitioners within two years by using an Essence-based Practice Architecture
  • A sustainable path to agility was created - teams could incrementally improve their way of working and growing
  • Practices provided standardization which helped practitioners share and learn best practices
