It should be recognized that Agile is an organizational change (going significantly beyond IT) that includes entrepreneurship (budgeting, business knowledge, trends, market and end-user needs, etc.), process maturity, project and flow management (proficiency in Agile and Lean), technical maturity (proficiency in software engineering, automation, DevOps, etc.), change management (adaptability, teams, people, culture) and soft skills (communication, conflict management, personality traits, motivators, etc.).
Agile Awareness Sessions are conducted for a small, dedicated group of C-level executives and management boards (decision makers). The aim of the workshop is to familiarize recipients with the subject of agile transformations, benefits, risks, costs and forecasts of the transformation process. The meeting also allows to dispel doubts and clarify the widely popular myths and legends associated with agility, which significantly clarifies whether and in which area the customer should apply the agile approach.
Agile / digital transformations are becoming more and more popular, also in large organizations. This trend for about 10 years, has become increasingly visible not only in IT departments, but in virtually every field and business sector.
There are various reasons why organizations decide to “implement” an agile approach. On the one hand, it is possible that the methods of value delivery used so far. management and leadership did not bring the expected results. On the other hand, it happens that suppliers themselves are “forced” to provide services in the agile model, otherwise they will not be compatible with the client’s requirements and his procurement processes (called Procurement). They will lose the client to the competition. Another reason is “fashion”, organizations opting for Agile, because this style of management is becoming more common or expected by the employees themselves, especially in the era of so-called “employee era”, ubiquitous body leasing, extremely present especially in the IT industry. Which translates into the needs of building a positive image of the employer (called employer branding) encouraging future employees with an agile culture and a positive work atmosphere.
The Kanban Method and System are currently one of the most commonly used methods to increase the competitiveness of workflow and value management companies. Despite the undoubted huge popularity in the world, many organizations still experience problems with its successful implementation (often briefly treating Kanban as an array). One of the reasons for this is undoubtedly the difficulty to properly measure its degree of maturity and efficiency. Without defining the measures and their proper control, we are not able to consciously increase business efficiency. This knowledge helps in deciding how to customize Kanban to show measurably the progress in achieving key business goals.
