Have you implemented Agile or Scrum and are finding it’s much harder than you thought? Are the results not what you were expecting? Are you lost in the mass of methods and advice? Scrum, Kanban, XP, SAFe, LeSS, DaD, Lean, Lean Startup…

Agile Failure Modes
We’ve worked with hundreds of teams and seen a large number of Agile failures. We’ve identified four key failure modes of Agile teams and transformations.
Not aspiring to professional excellence
Not focusing on business value
Not developing soft skills and leadership
Not becoming Agile at a leadership level
Two ways to improve your Agile
To address the four failure modes, we’ve developed two complementary approaches to Agile. They both adapt to suit your vision and your organisation.
Agile today is focused on features and user stories and prioritisation is a gut-feel activity.
Imagine if everyone in your organisation was focused on business value instead. If product features were optimised for business value in a transparent way that reduced politics amongst stakeholders and inspired the creativity of everyone involved.
Agile values individuals and interactions but is so often centred on processes and tools, particularly at scale.
Imagine if everyone in your organisation felt they were working with the greatest managers in the best team and using their talents to the full. If easy collaboration to build the best product was simply how everyone worked.
An Agile Coaching Process focused on Results

We go far beyond the standard Agile and Scrum skills to draw on leading-edge techniques from product development, business analysis, coaching, leadership and psychology to give you a solid foundation to create personal and business success in challenging situations.
