At Agilemania we believe there is no one approach that fits all. So, we segment our engagement with you in the below 3 broader terms which could range from few days to few months or a long term journey.
We blend various methods and approaches in a phased way to help you and your organizations transformation journey a less challenging one.
At a high level our Transformation engagement is grouped into the following stages as:
We have found immense success when we engage in the same order as mentioned above as it gives a systematic approach with regular feedback at each stage.
Trainings helps create the requisite awareness about the new change which the teams and the leadership is going to go through.
We have a catalogue of trainings ranging from certified to bespoke design offered by skilled trainers with hands-on experience.
As a next step to training, the services of our Consulting Coaches who are SMEs to engage with the identified teams for an agreed upon duration can be availed. Our recommended consulting duration is 3 months or less.
This is the last and the heart of any sustainable transformation program. We recommend a slightly longer duration ranging from 9 to 12 months for this engagement.
Here is the catalogue of trainings we offer off the shelf. Most of them are industry recognized and knowledge based certification program.
The above list is a subset of the bouquet of trainings we offer and for a complete list of trainings please refer Our Courses.
We like to start by understanding your needs and based on the needs, we propose the bare minimum trainings, which could be custom created trainings tailored for your organization’s structure and business model.
Our consulting approach is very simple and focused where based on the initial discussions and findings our experienced consultant will visit your organization, embed themselves with the teams and start working with them directly. Our experts take an empirical approach to transformation and will identify the challenges, propose the solution and if required solve it for the teams.
Our consulting engagements are short to midterm only with a focus on getting things done and we need to put into action a strategy for the long term sustainability of the change in parallel. Our experience is that Coaching is the key to sustainable agility.
When we engage as Coaches we bring a 360 degree holistic approach to the transformation. We try to look at the engagement in a phased manner. We have segmented our coaching engagement into 4 namely:
In our experience working with multiple organizations including fortune 500 organizations we have realized that a team can be only as agile as the team’s decision makers (leadership team) allow them to be. So, to set the foundation for sustainable agility we engage with the Leadership team to help them understand the need and their role in Agility thus improving the organizational agility and business agility. Refer the Details of Organizational Coaching section for more details.
We believe Leadership coaching is a niche and a new area especially the Asian countries. We need the leader’s active contribution and support during their department’s agile adoption without which the teams’ are severely impaired in their ability to navigate this change process is why we recommend leadership coaching as part of the package we offer.
Here the coach works with one to four teams (we do not go for more than 4 teams at any given point of time) to improve the teams working and the agile practices. It is common for a coach to take on the Scrum Master role to make the change more effective and efficient. Refer the Details of Team Coaching section for more details
Here the coach works with a team on their actual codebase in order to introduce or improve the existing technical practices and adopt agile development techniques such as SOLID principles, simple design, refactoring, ATDD, TDD, BDD, automating unit testing, CI / CD pipeline setup, etc.
The goal of organizational coaching is to help Organization / Leadership team to structure their organization so that it gets the most amount of benefits by transitioning to agile way of working. In this there will be lot of overlapping between the Leadership coaching and Organizational coaching.
We blend the organizational coaching and the leadership coaching as both are not separable. This is an important aspect of the agile coaching as we need to have a realistic strategy in place.
The goal of team coaching is to help the Team become a better self-managing team. This often also includes coaching the Scrum Master so that s/he can keep coaching the team in the future. No team works without a context, so this type of coaching does also focus on the organization and the technical practices but does so from the team perspective.
Our coaches are trained, skilled and experienced at multiple coaching facets. A coach who does organizational coaching also can coach one or two teams at the same time. Or a team coach might also play a technical coach for another team
