Our Approach

Whether you are transitioning from waterfall to agile or improving your initial agile practices, our industry recognized experts customize an approach for you. We pull from team-level Agile frameworks (Scrum, Kanban, Lean, XP) and Agile at Scale frameworks (SAFe, LeSS, [email protected], Disciplined Agile) and Agile delivery practices (DevOps, LeanUX, Design Thinking, Continuous Delivery) to help you achieve your desired outcomes.

Continuously improve

We focus on your goals – delivering value and making your customers happy – and we use Agile principles and practices to help you:

  • Orient around the Continuous Improvement Backlog.
  • Assist organizations, programs, and teams provide value aligned to your outcomes through improved product quality and greater customer satisfaction.
  • Facilitate team improvement of product and collaboration and increase employee morale and retention.

 

Build a learning organization

Excella’s Agile Coaches understand that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to supporting organizations, programs, teams and individuals. Our approach strives to build a learning organization:

  • We focus on what’s working, what is not working and drive change in the organization to improve outcomes.
  • We challenge how the organization thinks about its entire portfolio of work and foster cross-functional collaboration to accomplish priorities.
  • We facilitate regular retrospectives to inspect and adapt our coaching approach and confirm everyone remains aligned with the highest priority needs.

Empower change

Transforming is about organizational and cultural change. We implement agile principles to iterate and realign practices:

  • We establish feedback loops to captured metrics and achieve the defined success outcome.
  • You get an adaptive approach to sustained delivery and consistent communication.
  • We use visual tools, templates and models to build trust and increase transparency, leading to sustainable change.
