Agile Transformation

In the world of software development, one of the main goals of adopting and transforming to agile is to produce working, quality software in short, fast increments. This requires teams that are able to accept and implement fast changing requirements.

The authors of the Agile Manifesto did not provide a prescription or a formula on how to become agile. The Manifesto does not mention Scrum or any other process or methodology. They simply described a small set of values and principles that act as a guide to an Agile way of working.

Becoming Agile

Agile is best described as an umbrella of values and principles and under it are many different sets of frameworks that help an organisation achieve agility. Agility is the goal while DSDM, SAFe, Scrum, Lean, Kanban and other types of framework are the “how”. We see our job as one of helping you navigate through all the options of how to achieve your goal and deciding on what works best for your unique organisation and environment.  

Agile Transformation

Agile transformation is as an act of transforming an organisation’s form or nature gradually to one that is able to embrace and thrive in a flexible, collaborative, self-organising, fast changing environment. The Agile Manifesto values and principles can be taught and exercised throughout any type of organisation as it does not just apply to software development teams.

The entire organisation needs to understand the definition of an agile transformation and the value of it in order to benefit from the rewards of achieving agility. The complete cultural and organisational mindset must change to one that embraces a culture of self-organisation and collaboration. We can partner with the leaders in your organisation to make this happen. 

Lean Agile Transformation

Agile Lean transformation is transforming to agility while implementing and recognising Lean practices and values. Lean, originally intended for manufacturing, was later recognised as applicable and appropriate for software development and any other kind of knowledge work. The main goal of Lean is to maximise customer value while minimising waste.

By Adhering to the core values and principles of Agile and Lean, AgilePM Group can help your organisation to become more Agile.
