Agility is not a GOAL. It’s a means to achieve your business goals
Is your Agile transformation sustainable?
Billions of dollars spent over 20 years, 1000s of trainings, millions of person hours of coaching and ‘trying to be Agile’, but 22 years after the Manifesto for Agile Software Development was created, we seem to be still missing the trick.
Less than 25% organizations adopting Agile practices have reported significant long term and short term benefit. So, what’s that secret sauce we are missing as an industry ? It is not Agile trainings and coaching but Sustainable Agility, which creates a true value both for the business and teams
Sustainable Agility is all about using the correct practices driven by a meta change management framework which doesn’t just try to fit Scrum and SAFe into every team, but helps the organization become a learning organization, which continually evolves to ensure true enterprise Agility
My team and I are on a mission to ensure that Agile adoptions for our clients are not just a process change but a truly sustainable, self organized and managed solution. Our goal is not to coach you forever, but to make ourselves redundant as soon as possible
Agile by Invitation (not by force…!!!)
The very first tenet of Manifesto for Agile Software Development asks as to value Individuals and Interactions over Process and Tools but are they really allowed to do that in our current Agile transformation efforts?
When a change is top driven and managed through tools like JIRA. Rally et al, the ownership, the passion and zeal for change is missing. For Sustainable Agility to take roots, it is important the the Agile adoption is invitation based where team members, managers, customers, business owners (and everyone else) are invited to be part of the change, not coerced to undergo it by someone from the top. Our Agile coaching and advisory services help designated leaders and teams build a true Agile culture together and sustain it through the ages
Key Elements of our AGile COACHING ENGAGeMENTS
Invitation based Change
Helping designated leaders create an invitation to kickstart the Agile transformation. Open Space based meta change framework to help people and teams choose Agile practices that work in their context and space. Continuous Organization wide retrospective to Inspect and Adapt the practices to ground realities
Once the team has chosen their Agile practices, they need setting up role mapping, new organization structures, tools and KPIs to help them get them realize the full benefits of using Agile practices. We also work with HR, Sales , Marketing and Operations teams to ensure that Agile teams realize their full potential.
Internal Agile coaching capability creation
The best way to understand if our Agile coaching is working for you, is to make us redundant.
Yes!, you heard it right. Our focus is not to bill you for months and years for our advisory services but to identify and coach your team members to take over the role of coaches as your transformation initiative grows, so that they can be there with the team when needed

We help you by building a transformation roadmap that works for you and your team. Flexible and Relevant

“The coach from worked with us for the purpose of Agile Transformation.
The coach’s knowledge and expertise in Agile from both training & coaching perspective were instrumental in successfully migrating the team from waterfall to Agile Software development methodology. The coach always
kept cool head and guided the team very effectively. The coach was very passionate on agile principles and communicated that to the team very well. This motivated the team in difficult phases of agile transformation.
