THE CORE OF THE AGILE EXTREME APPROACH
We use a number of international best practice frameworks including SAFe® (Scaled Agile Framework) as well as BIG FRAMEWORK in combination with books and articles and we’re strongly influenced by thought leaders such as Peter Drucker, John Kotter and William Deming.
With more than thirty years of hands-on experience using Lean & Agile and business strategy in well-known organizations such as Volvo Group, Nordea, Stena Line plus small and quickly growing start-ups, we know what to add to frameworks such as SAFe® and BIG® to make them work all the way for you.
OUR 7 step system
1. TRAIN THE LEADERS
It is crucial for success that leaders understand the latest and best organizational design patterns as well as the 7-Step System to Accelerate the Business. The training covers both Leading Lean & Agile as well as Leading BIG® (Business Innovation Growth).
2. STRATEGIZE THE ACCELERATED BUSINESS MODEL
We train you in defining your strategies in a way that can be communicated to all of your people, and ensure we are moving towards an improved business model. Everybody (the entire organization) needs to be working towards the same vision.
3. DESIGN THE ORGANIZATION
In joint cooperation with you we design a customer-centric organization for Higher Productivity, Faster Delivery, Happier Employees, and Joyful Customers by changing the structure where needed and placing your people in the right roles.
4. TRAIN THE TEAMS
Everyone needs training to understand the new roles, value streams and concepts that accelerate your business. We train all teams, team-leaders and the key people the teams depend on.
5. LAUNCH IT
We launch the new improved organization in one week. You never lose more than one week of production, even for a full re-organization.
6. DRIVE HOME THE BENEFITS
Working in the right way (Agile & BIG®) is one thing. Ensuring the benefits arrive and arrive fast is something else. To ensure this, we build a Drive Home the Benefits concept together with you to ensure there is measured and proven success. Key to success is continuous improvement as well as coaching and training by experienced professionals. We help you maximize the benefits.
7. PREPARE FOR THE NEXT CLIMB
When performance improvements stabilize, it is time for the next climb! Climbing up the business agile maturity mountain requires much more than traditional team agile. There is no real business agility until we fully unite agile delivery with innovation and business growth practices that span across the entire business model and enterprise.
