Embracing Agile Transformation

Business as usual is no longer good enough.

Customers and employees expect higher quality products and tailored experiences. The stakes to achieve mission and business objectives are higher than ever and teams must keep pace with change. There are many ways to tell that “business as usual” is no longer working and it’s time for transformational change:

You spend more time managing dependencies and patching up existing problems than creating new value.

Your efforts to introduce change or improvements have consistently failed.

You’re not keeping pace with market shifts that demand faster and better results to achieve your goals.

Truly agile organizations can adapt quickly to change and respond faster to market and customer demands. Getting there requires more than simply adopting an Agile framework or purchasing a new tool, it requires a diligent approach and the right mindset across an entire organization.

The results speak for themselves. Organizations that embrace Agile Transformation see benefits like:

Evolve For Tomorrow

We’ve been on board with Agile since the beginning and have seen the positive impact it can have on organizations of all sizes. It doesn’t matter what your role is—developer, manager, analyst—or the type of project you are working on, taking an Agile approach is more rewarding for everyone involved and leads to better business results.

Using our collective expertise, we empower your teams to adopt a transformative Agile mindset. Equipped with the right tools and support, your teams will challenge traditional thinking and remove roadblocks in your technology and processes.

Whether you are transitioning from waterfall to Agile or improving your initial Agile practices, our industry-recognized experts customize an approach for you. Since there is no one-size-fits-all approach, we pull from team-level Agile frameworks (Scrum, Kanban, Lean, XP), Agile at Scale frameworks (SAFe, LeSS, [email protected], Disciplined Agile), and Agile aligned delivery practices (DevOps, LeanUX, Design Thinking, Continuous Delivery) to help you achieve your desired outcomes.

Empowered Agile Transformation Partners

Silverline

For Silverline Communications, clients are not just customers. They’re partners. For many years, a client-driven mindset fueled Silverline’s success, but as the company grew, competing requests and unclear priorities created challenges, like a difficulty anticipating staffing needs and predicting delivery.

 

By working with an Agile coach experienced in coaching non-IT teams, they found an approach after discussing work styles, processes, and overall needs. Through the implementation of Kanban, they unlocked their teams potential as they evolved from client-driven to value-driven marketing.
