Agile Organization

A successful agile transformation is a complex, long-term process that is supported by all people in the organization. Agility requires methodological know-how as well as agile principles and values that are respected and lived by everyone involved. Ideally, this starts at the top: Only when the changed attitude becomes noticeable and visible in the leadership style can the organizational culture develop holistically.

In recent years, we have accompanied companies of all sizes through this change. One thing always remains the same: Agile frameworks can provide orientation, but they only develop their full strength when they are tailored to the individual dynamics of the company. This is exactly where our strength lies. We develop tailor-made strategies and accompany you on your way to an agile organization.

Digital Strategies

Thinking in digital dimensions and agile action go hand in hand. The success of digitization initiatives depends on organizational and infrastructural framework conditions: Compact teams with short decision-making paths. The greatest possible autonomy. A modern working environment. Agile basic knowledge in all departments. In order to develop contemporary digital solutions, you should first create the conditions for this.

But where to start? The best way is with learning by doing. We are convinced that there is no way around cold water. That makes support from experienced consultants all the more important. We work with you to develop an effective digital strategy and help you build digital teams. In the process, we make sure that awareness of agile values and principles also grows in other, classically organized departments and that cross-team collaboration can function.

Innovation Labs

Every company is a think tank – under the right conditions. In the Innovation Lab, unimagined creative potential can unfold because employees from a wide range of departments are involved in the innovation process. Thanks to agile support, ideas quickly lead to initial results. Ideally, this leads to product ideas for the company.

Keep in mind that an Innovation Lab can only work if you also work on the organizational culture. Strict departmental thinking, strict hierarchies and long decision-making paths have no place in the Innovation Lab and only inhibit creative potential. Make sure you take the necessary precautions – we are here to advise you.

Scaling

Why are agile processes so effective? Because small, cross-functional teams can work on product parts in a focused and self-organized manner. So does agile reach its limits for large projects? No. You can use agile methods for large projects as well, but you have to scale them accordingly. That doesn’t change the principles and values of agility – but the complexity grows.

Large projects are characterized above all by additional organizational levels. This slows down collaboration and increases the risk of failure. With sound consulting, you can counteract this uncertainty. Our consultants have accompanied many large projects in recent years and led them to success with frameworks such as LeSS, LeSS Huge and SAFe®. With myScaled Agile, we design the individual path for your organization with you. We know what is important – you too can benefit from our experience!

With myScaled Agile you can design your own individual path to an agile organization.

Prototyping

Innovative product developments usually have one thing in common: requirements and benefits are not fixed from the start. With agile methods, you can mitigate this problem to a certain extent because you obtain feedback from the outside at an early stage. The prototype shows the most important functionality of the product in a realistic environment. This allows you to see more quickly what works – and what still needs to be worked on.

We have already observed in many companies how the rapid completion of a prototype has a positive effect on further product development. With agile methods, you can achieve initial results after just a few weeks. Let’s talk about how we can support you in this.

Lean Startup

Startups usually have only a few resources at their disposal. The logical consequence: They work together with end users from the very beginning and present a Minimum Viable Product in the shortest possible time and without much effort. This allows them to illustrate the benefits for investors and check whether there is a market for the product. Instead of long-term planning, the lean startup method focuses on learning by doing.

But you don’t have to be a startup to reap the benefits of Lean Startup. With this method, you can react faster and more flexibly to changes in the market. You can rely on the know-how of the right specialists. We show you how to set up benefit hypotheses, prioritize product functionalities and keep the product cycle lean and agile.
