Creating high-performance cultures

Empowering teams to deliver at pace

Your organisation is multi-channel already and you've been running digital services for some time but delivery is too slow. Great ideas for improvement take too long to get to market. Is the way we work slowing the ship down?

How can the teams and governance of your organisation be best organised? What culture is needed so that leaders lead and teams can focus their passion and energy to deliver at pace and with the right levels of quality?

Agile business at scale and breadth

Adopt the disciplines and tools to create a sustainable Agile culture across the whole organisation

Agility – the ability to collaboratively deliver the right value at the right speed, quality and cost – is essential to a modern organisation's ability to survive and thrive. Getting the whole business on board is essential to Agility so we work with you to:

  • Develop a repeatable, empirical process that supports continuous improvement at scale
  • Understand your organisational context and identify the best methods, tools and techniques for your environment based on our wide experience with public and private enterprise
  • Ensure transparency and alignment
  • Establish a regular inspection and adaption cycle, enabling all areas of the business to continuously improve, collaborate effectively, manage dependencies and deliver the right value at the right time through Agile
  • Define a process that works for you

We draw on the techniques that work in your context. These might include:

Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), Large Scale Scrum (LeSS), Spotify Model, Scrum, Kanban, Scaled Professional Scrum (SPS).

Making innovation central to the new normal

Written by Ben Hayman

With Innovation sounding like a great idea, we’d all support it within our organisations. Staff want to know they’re supported in being creative and looking for innovative ways forward. It’s a no-brainer in many ways, but to create the conditions for innovation to become part of the new ‘business as usual’ takes framing and sponsorship.
