Lean Governance

Can you easily assess the Health and Status of your Lean-Agile Enterprise?

Lean and Agile comes in many flavours and is applied with varying degrees of rigor and formality at many different levels (team, project, program, value-stream, portfolio, enterprise).

A key challenge is how to maintain good governance, with appropriate oversight and risk coverage, to ensure that investments are well-directed and protected, but without impeding responsiveness or delaying customer value.

We can help:

  • Calculate cost-of-delay of current governance procedures
  • Identify essential gaps in governance of agile projects
  • Prioritize improvements to minimize cost-of-delay & maximize effectiveness
  • Provide a roadmap to in-flow governance

Lightweight and In-flow

IJI can consult, coach and train on lean governance that provides:
  • A lightweight approach that does not impede the flow of value.
  • Method-neutral controls that work hand-in-glove with agile development.
  • Continuous status and health monitoring to avoid delays associated with traditional governance checks.

IJI consultants, equipped with experience, knowledge and a number of simple but powerful tools, can help your organization enable non-invasive governance for a heterogeneous and empowered lean-agile delivery organization.

  • Deploy clear and objective indicators of the status and health of any endeavour
  • Ensure transparency of status irrespective of chosen methodology (waterfall, lean, agile, …)
  • Define method-neutral quality checks for effective but non-intrusive lifecycle governance
  • Enable local-empowerment and flexibility of lean-agile practices without losing transparency
  • Objectively assess the coverage and adequacy of locally-tailored lean-agile ways-of-working
  • Use self-assessments to enable teams to inspect and adapt lean-agile working practices
