Agile adoption is successful when smaller organizations attempt a transition. However, when companies that have global or multiple locations, a mix of contractors and full time employees, time zone differences, a multi-million dollar portfolio embedded with traditional project management, the challenges of implementing agile at the enterprise scale level is not a simple straightforward process.
We provide consulting for executive leadership and senior leadership in enterprise organizations to raise awareness of the practical challenges that they should expect with agile adoption as well as pragmatic real-world tried and tested tools and processes that enable large scale enterprise agile adoption.
Based on the industry and your organizations goals, we conduct executive workshops that are designed to enable organizations to achieve Continuous Business Value Delivery (CBVD)®. We provide insights into the transformation journey, the preparation required to be successful as well as governance structure for executives to conduct organizational change management.
