Agile Transformation

47% of all agile transformations fail, while 77% of agile transformations are scrum. Ideas are easy, but execution is everything.

 

In today’s agile world, teams often equate the daily stand up as being agile. We haphazardly commit to the ceremonies and best practices of backlog grooming, and we often rush through sprint planning and user story estimating and we often volunteer our Scrum Masters into the role of Project Manager thereby robbing ours teams of autonomy.

  • Are you looking to implement Scrum?

  • Are you not seeing the benefits from your agile investment?

  • Are your teams struggling with stable velocities? 

  • Are milestones and predictability a challenge?
