Blue Print for Embedding Systemic Enterprise Agility
A Managed Services Approach to Accelerating Agile Mastery and Delivery Excellence
Most organizations begin their journey to becoming an Agile Enterprise by focusing on the adoption of Lean-Agile practices by Working Surface teams and ignoring everything else. The stark reality of this approach is that implementing Working Surface team agility creates challenges across the entire organizational stack that can threaten success and generate conflict.
Achieving Lean-Agile operating maturity (mastery of practices and behaviors) requires continuous and complex change, including leadership/management behaviors and cultural modifications that support new teaming methods and skills. This kind of deep transformation requires developing holistic organizational agility. All teams need to have a comprehensive understanding of the desired outcome, one that goes far beyond adoption of Scrum, tools, and ceremonies.
Deploying a Leverage Model to Accelerate Mastery and Repeatability
Gear Stream leverages managers and three synergistic coaching models to create team agility at the Working Surface, Program, and Portfolio levels. Each model combines coaching, tracking of team progress using behavioral metrics, and learning interventions designed to support concurrent change across all stakeholder teams. This system enables manager support and coaching to accelerate and normalize sustainability and mastery of Lean-Agile skills and practices.
