Agile Mindset

Move from agile rituals that mask waterfall thinking to a comprehensive and sustainable agility

It’s human to resist change

Many companies do agile – they implement agile practices and processes, but their progress continues to be slow. Some managers continue to have “waterfall expectations”, like quarterly projections, intermediate reports, and multi-stage design processes. Those setbacks are inevitable and can continue for years if you don’t teach people to actually be agile.

Achieving startup-level agility

Successful startups have agility in the bones of their culture – a constant expectation to quickly move from one phase to another. We help corporate managers to develop this sense of urgency – the agile mindset.

Corporate agility is a complex challenge.

Why would this approach work?

We don’t focus on agility practices but on agility practitioners. We help people uncover the unconscious gaps in their mindsets that create agility-obstructive behaviors. In this process, any thinking that is not customer-centric or value-driven gets thrown away.

People enjoy being agile; we just make sure they don’t sabotage their own commitment to agility.

The process of creating a network of facilitators

1

Assessment

After outlining agility challenges together and setting measurable goals, we run a personal assessment test to identify the baseline agility mindset of each team member.

2

Mindset coaching

Each team member receives a personal coach who works with them on surfacing the mental obstacles to agile practices. The mere awareness of such obstructions usually creates the breakthrough needed for a meaningful behavioral change.

3

Behavioral coaching

We use a wide range of techniques to create a meaningful change in behavior. These techniques vary from enacting role-plays and real-plays to creating action plans and making sure people stay committed.

4

Sustainable Change

We create an action plan team members can commit to, and we hold them accountable for progress during the following few months, ensuring you complete the journey from doing agile to being agile.
