Accelerating Success with Agile Approach to Delivery
Born in the IT sphere, agile methodology has spread to all departments and industries to create self-organized and efficient teams. This proven approach is an asset in our volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world. Companies are now looking for processes that provide more value to users and more flexibility, which leads to reduced time to market and more visibility.
Center of Excellence at Amaris Consulting
Agile methodology cannot be restricted to one tool or method. Therefore, at Amaris we approach it through four axes that can be adjusted to any context. Here are some non-exhaustive examples of our approach:
- Accompany the development team and its stakeholders through all its agile steps, from ideation to launch, and until the team becomes efficient
- Support the team in its practices: Agile, Scrum, Kanban, XP, etc.
- Help engage users throughout the development process and gain feedback from them to deliver a product/system that meets their needs on time
- Train and follow up on employees in their new roles as scrum master, product owner, product manager, and business owner
- Build communities of practice
- Ensure the hierarchical model contributes to the team’s efficiency and a good understanding
- Create a target operating model (TOM)
- Make sure the organization sponsors and supports the TOM
- Identify the operational value stream in order to de-silo the organization to serve the user and develop the product/service
- Facilitate exchanges and reorganization between the development teams and the operations in order to enter into a multidisciplinary agile model (You build it, you run it)
- Encourage transformational mindset of every department through workshop, team building, continuous improvement, try-outs of new practices, and e-learning video
- Set up Serious game
- Educate on agile acculturation and DevOps acculturation
- Implement feedback loops on the transformed teams
- Set up a vision of the transformation and give meaning to the need to transform and the challenge of the organization
- Help establish a framework to foster co-creation
- Involve board of management/executive committee in this co-creation to bring more meaning and support to the organization’s transformation
- Implement a Lean Portfolio Management (LPM) to ensure investments and follow-up projects are made in an agile way with the creation of new roles, including Epic owner and portfolio manager
- Create new instances of lean portfolio review and strategic portfolio review
