We help organizations and their people collaborate, improve and get things done. We do it by helping them learn, understand and implement Agile and Lean methodologies such as Scrum and Kanban. These methods are currently the best starting point if you want to create a culture of continuous improvement, teamwork and high value delivery in your company or project.
Our way of working is fairly straightforward. Assuming you don't already know what you're looking for, we will assess where you stand regarding your understanding and adoption of Agile & Lean methods. Whether you are completely new to this or you already have a mature implementation that is stagnating, we will make you a recommendation on how to move forward.
We offer a full portfolio of services in the field of agile and lean consulting. We train, we coach, and we embed ourselves as team members - we improve.
Whether you are starting off in your Agile and continuous improvement journey or whether you have a mature Agile implementation that is stagnating, a good coach can provide invaluable counsel and support. We understand that as coaches our role is to foster collaboration and develop teams that focus on results, until a culture of delivery, teamwork and continuous improvement is ingrained into the teams.
To achieve this, we have found it most effective to have our coaches work as members of the client’s leadership team, because experience has taught us that successful changes come from a shared vision and an internal champion.
Coaching assignments are tailored to the specific context, meaning we will typically start by conducting Agilar’s Agile Maturity Assessment to determine how mature is the Agile implementation and what are the improvements still necessary. This enables us to develop a common understanding with the client about what are the main challenges, so that we can provide them with the appropriate experts. Agilar’s broad range of internationally experienced coaches means we can support a wide range of needs, from detailed technical expertise up to business coaching, value-stream mapping and organizational structure.
These assignments are usually time-intensive at first, with our coaches working hands-on with key teams and people. Involvement then tapers down to weekly or monthly follow-ups, where our coaches sit down with change leaders within the organization to evaluate progress and identify the next priorities.
Experience has shown us that embedding top professionals within project delivery teams is a highly effective way to transfer knowledge and instil a new spirit of collaboration and improvement. This transformation will typically happen in a gradual and organic manner, which assures our clients that they can begin their improvement initiatives while continuing to deliver on their key projects.
We have a wide-range of team members available, including:
All of them have been vetted by our renowned high-standards and strict peer-review and endorsement guidelines, which means our clients can embed within their teams some of the top people available in the industry and give their improvement initiative a jump start.
