Sustainable Agile Transformation Approach

Achieve Rapid and Sustainable Transformation

Sustainable change is about achieving consistent and lasting adoption of agile techniques across broad communities of practice - our approach helps the change “stick” so our customers achieve rapid self-sufficiency.

One of the biggest challenges with agile change programs is achieving lasting change. Our goal is to help you to change culture and behaviours in a lasting way, so that you can become truly independent and self-sufficient in new ways of working. Another challenge with change programs is knowing how well you are doing, and demonstrating improvements visibly and measurably to ensure continued buy-in and support for the change. By setting targets and measuring performance from day one, we can help set you on a path to sustainable change.

  • To sustain the new way of working long term requires an organization to invest in its people and focus on building internal capability in new practices.
  • It requires a focus on developing and empowering internal communities; which means developing in-house coaching capability and enabling for the propagation of sound, professional working practices.

Capabilities to Enable Sustainable Agile Transformation

Three supporting capabilities required to achieve and then maintain a state of effective self-sustainability are Practice Hubs, Coaching Hubs and Communities of Practice.

Practice Hubs

Practice hubs are the focus for guidance and learning materials, harvesting new and evolving practices from the communities and sharing these for wider usage.

Coaching Hubs

The coaching hubs will build the capabilities of teams in those practices provided through the practice hub, with training and agile coaching activities.

Communities of Practice

Communities of Practice are groups of people that are utilizing shared practices. Different members within the community will have different levels of skills at the practice, the more skilled being able to support and assist the less skilled.

Coaching hubs enable the change, offering inspiration and support to practitioners under the leadership of experienced agile coaches. Practice hubs are the focus for guidance and learning materials, harvesting new and evolving practices from the communities and sharing these for wider usage. Within the practitioner communities, clearly defined individual achievement levels provide coaching objectives that enable measurable skills uplift.
