Develop your organization’s unique Agile approach with guidance and support

Every organization has unique challenges and constraints. It’s often helpful to have the benefit of expert guidance and support as you make the transition to an Agile approach in your workplace.

Each engagement begins with assessing the team’s Scrum maturity and collaboratively devising a path to maturity at a pace that is comfortable and sustainable for both the team and organization. Goals and activities might include the following:

  • Setting up the Scrum framework (Roles, Artifacts, Events)
  • Implementing the Nexus framework to scale Scrum at the enterprise level
  • Understanding and implementing Scrum practices such as creating, ordering, and estimating the backlog and the definition of Done
  • How to use Agile/Scrum practices and values to build the right products
  • Optimizing self-organization
  • Using empiricism to maximize inspection and adaptation
  • Product Owner guidance in the area of refining and maintaining the Product Backlog
  • Building a trusting environment where people can raise problems without fear of blame, judgement or other negative consequences
  • Improving internal and external communication for increased transparency
  • Learning how to facilitate discussions, decision-making, and conflict resolution
